Nicelabel – GS1                                                 STILL & SSCC: Labelling Logistic Units

                   Label dimensions

                   While several GS1 logistic label sizes are acceptable, GS1 does not
                   recommend using sizes smaller than A6. Smaller labels mean smaller

                   barcodes, and this makes the labels harder to read with a barcode reader
                   and more vulnerable to environmental damage.

                   If space on the logistical unit permits, use A4 or A5 labels, in portrait or
                   landscape format.

                   Positioning of labels on the pallet

                   The positioning of GS1 logistic labels on pallets depends on the shape of
                   the products on the pallet, pallet height, whether stacked pallets include
                   various shipping units, and whether or not the products or complete

                   pallet are wrapped.

                   It’s always a good practice to avoid placing labels on the bottom edge of
                   the shipment. Such labels are more exposed to environmental damage
                   during transport. Also, the fork assembly of a forklift will prevent the
                   forklift operator from scanning such a label once the pallet is picked up
                   by a forklift.
