Logistics Labels

The GS1 Logistics Label is a standardised label for labelling logistic units such as pallets. Using the label, a logistic unit can be traced through the entire supply chain from manufacture to end customer.

A GS1 Logistics Label can be one, or a combination, of the following:

  • Pallet label
  • Transport label
  • Store or custom package label

Common to all three types of label is the mandatory requirement to provide the logistic unit’s SSCC (Serial Shipping Container Code). If a logistic unit is labelled with a combination of several labels, then either all the labels must contain the same SSCC or only one of the labels may contain the SSCC.
