Companies pack products into logistic units like cases, pallets, or parcels. To identify and keep track of logistic units in the Repacker FMD application, create and manage serial shipping container code (SSCCs) sequences as per the GS1 standard.

List of Procedures

Searching for an SSCC and Viewing the SSCC History


1. In the Repacker FMD application, select the SSCC pool tab.

2. Enter the number of the SSCC in the search field and/or select the status under Status.

  • The list of the SSCCs is filtered based on the search criteria.
  • You can reset the filter by clicking Reset filters.

3. To view the history of an SSCC, click > next to the SSCC on the left. You can track all the status changes of the SSCC during its lifecycle.

For more information on the status changes, see Lifecycle of SSCCs in Repacker FMD.

Creating an SSCC Sequence

You can generate GS1-compliant SSCC sequences in the Repacker FMD application to use them for receiving, decommissioning, and repackaging activities.


1. In the Repacker FMD application, select the SSCC pool tab.

2. Click Create SSCC sequence.

3. In the Create SSCC sequence dialog, provide the necessary details as described below.

Extension digit
Enter the extension digit for the SSCC (0-9).
GS1 Prefix
Enter the GS1 company prefix.
Start sequence from
Optionally, specify the serial number to start the sequence from. The value given here is part of the serial reference piece of your SSCC.

Movilitas.Cloud recommends leaving the field blank and letting the application decide where to start.

Providing a number

The provided serial number is the starting value.

If the value is already in the pool, the serial reference piece will take the next value that is not existing in the pool yet.

For example, you enter "330" here, and the serial reference is 9-digit long due to a 7-digit long GS1 company prefix. The first SSCC in the sequence will receive "000000330" as the serial reference, the second one will have "000000331", and so on. If "000000330" is already in the pool, the next value is taken that is not existing in the pool yet.

Note: If the first 1001 serial numbers that the system tries have already been taken, a safeguard is triggered and an error message is displayed: Couldn't generate SSCC in 1001 iterations.

Leaving the field blank

The application calculates the serial reference piece by counting how many SSCCs were created with the given GS1 company prefix and extension digit before. The application picks the first serial number based on the counted number and tries that value first.

For example, suppose there are already 2000 SSCCs for the given GS1 company prefix and extension digit. In that case, the application assumes that serial numbers "0" to "1999" have already been taken and will start from serial number "2000" when it tries to generate new SSCCs.

AmountEnter the number of required SSCCs.


Note: Movilitas.Cloud automatically calculates the check digit based on the entered values as per the GS1 standard. You do not need to calculate or give the check digit.

4. Click Create. The SSCCs are created and are in Available status in the list.

In the following example, we are searching for the five new SSCCs by entering the extension digit ("3") followed by the GS1 company prefix ("01234567"). As we started the sequence from 100, the serial reference is 8-digit long, and starts with "00000100":
