Dot Foods Pallet Label Guidelines
Dot Foods requires that all pallets be labeled with a Serial Shipping Container Code (SSCC) encoded in GS1-128 symbology. The SSCC (or license plate) will be scanned at receiving to match the product on the pallet to the data contained on the 856 – Advance Ship Notice.
SSCC Pallet Label (Actual label size is 4 x 6, illustration not to scale)
Each pallet will have one unique license plate number (LPN) with 2 License Plates Labels. When facing the front of the pallet (40” side), the LPN will be affixed on top of the stretch wrap on the front side and adjacent 48” right side of the pallet. The label should be placed 6 to 10 inches from the top and 6 inches from either vertical edge.
The SSCC Serial Shipping Container Code provides adept product traceability, increases warehouse efficiency and decreases receive time and error, making for all Dot products to be both accurately and automatically distributed through Dot Foods and ultimately into the hands of the end customer.
