Nicelabel – GS1                                                 STILL & SSCC: Labelling Logistic Units







                   Introduction




                   STILL and SSCC









                   STILL is fully compliant with GS1 specifications and aims for logistic
                   traceability of logistic units that move along the supply chain. STILL is
                   a common approach to identification and bar coding and serves as a
                   worldwide reference point. It also prevents any successive relabeling that
                   would otherwise occur along the supply chain.


                   STILL has been designed to provide best practice using GS1 Standards

                   with further recommendations in the logistic and transport area. The
                   objective is to define the best contents for the label(s) within the
                   framework of the relationship between logistic services client (retailer or
                   supplier), carrier and logistic services provider.


                   The SSCC on the other hand is the GS1 Identification Key used to identify
                   a logistic unit and it is the only compulsory requirement for the logistic

                   labels. Scanning the SSCC bar code on each logistic unit allows the
                   physical movement of units to be matched with the electronic business
                   messages that refer to them. This unique identifier is comprised of an
                   Extension Digit, a GS1 Company Prefix, a Serial Reference, and a Check
                   Digit.


                   The SSCC can be used for any logistic units that require individual
                   identification, such as couriered parcels, beer kegs, or even a whole
                   container load. The SSCC is also useful for internal pallet or unit

                   identification when the load is put away or moved within a warehouse or
                   business.
