Nexteer Labels and Packaging (Supplier Requirements)
Three types of labels are required by Nexteer Automotive depending on how material is packaged for shipment: The Container Label (Global Supplier Label) SHALL be used to identify a single pack containing the same part number. It is the most commonly used shipping/parts identification label.
A Master Label must be used for containers, pallets, skids, etc., holding more than one single pack of the same part number per divisional requirements. Each individual package should still contain a container label within the outer package. A Mixed Load Label and the Dual Parts Label are used for containers, pallets, skids, etc., holding more than one single pack of different part numbers. These labels may be required based on specific Nexteer Automotive requirements.
There are two types of packaging covered in this document; outer packages and inner packages. Inner packaging will utilize container labels while outer packages will utilize master labels. An outer package is any container that contains multiple packages of single materials. Inner packages are the smallest shippable packaged units of a material. Examples are pallets (outer packages) of boxes (inner container), bins (outer packages) of bags (inner packages), etc.
Two labels should be attached to either inner or outer packages on adjacent sides or opposite sides depending on packaging. See section I for label placement. Additional label type may be required for Mixed loaded material. Mixed Load label format can be used for identification of materials of differing part numbers loaded within the confines of the same container or pallet. These can be of the same or differing quantities. On smaller packaging where the lid of the container covers the complete lower portion of the container, it will also be necessary to apply an additional label to the inner end of the container so that the material can still be identified when the lid is discarded.
