Compliant Pallet labels that scan every time

Print and apply pallet labels that scan every time, with pallet labelling solutions from Matthews. With the right pallet labels, you can speed your product’s time to market, enjoy better inventory control and save your business time and money.

Pallet labels can be applied at the point of manufacture or at the point of dispatch. They can be applied automatically using a Label Printer Applicator (LPA), or manually using a Label Printer. The label will contain both human-readable text and scannable symbols, including the Serial Shipping Container Code (SSCC). 

For automated production lines, LPAs are typically installed at, or immediately after, the pallet stretch wrap station. When installed at the stretch wrapper, it’s common to interlock the LPA with the stretch wrapper to apply an SSCC label on each fork entry side of the pallet. An unattended scanner can be used to read each carton barcode. The LPA will then use that information to print the appropriate pallet label on each fork entry side.

For smaller operations looking for manual pallet labelling, a label printer with the right software can be used to print pallet labels in the right format.

Compliant SSCC labelling

Your pallet labelling must be compliant with GS1 and retailer standards. GS1 Australia has set the standards for logistics labels, making it easy for manufacturers to ensure they have the best quality labels. Get it wrong and you risk your stock being rejected, lasting damage to your customer relationships and expensive penalties from retailers. 

Both Label Printer Applicators and Label Printers will produce a fully compliant Serial Shipping Container Code (SSCC) label, with a combination of human-readable text and scannable symbols. There are three key elements to a fully compliant pallet label: content, size, and application.

Integrated, automated pallet labelling

Enhance the efficiency and accuracy of the pallet labelling process by integrating your SSCC pallet labeller into your production line. Using Matthews iDSnet software, you can automate the print, apply and verification process for both the GTIN carton and pallet label. 

Matthews can also easily integrate a Label Printer Applicator into your ERP or WMS. For instance, a scanner on a forklift means when that pallet is picked up off the end of the line, the stock can be booked into the business’s WMS system.
