Pallet Barcodes                          Pallets

Pallet barcodes are used on the pallet packaging. Hence if you are not sending product by pallet, you may not need pallet barcodes. In this case, you may need an ITF-14 carton code instead.

Pallet barcodes are mainly required by larger retailers, particularly supermarkets or any other company using a large distribution centre such as Mcdonalds’.

Pallet barcodes are typically needed as a pair of barcodes; a GS128 and an SSCC.

Sometimes you may need a new SSCC for a new pallet code, as you already have the GS128 barcode for that stock.

The GS128 barcode encodes multiple data, such as a product’s expiry dates, batch number, quantity, and EAN or UPC number.

The SSCC barcode is a unique number. Retailers use the SSCC to identify each pallet in their distribution centre or warehouse.

Images below show examples of GS128 (top) and SSCC (bottom)

Application Identifiers (AI)

GS1 Application Identifiers (AIs) are numeric prefixes used in barcodes and EPC/RFID tags to define the meaning and format of encoded data elements.

Some of the most commonly used  AIs are:

00 – SSCC

01 – GTIN

10 – Batch number

17 – Expiry date

37 – Number of Units (Count)
