The company wants to pack medicinal products into logistic units like cases, pallets, or parcels, etc. To identify and keep track of these logistic units, serial shipping container codes (SSCCs) are needed. 


To identify and keep track of logistic units in the Manufacturer for Pharma application, create serial shipping container code (SSCCs) sequences.


Procedure


1. Open the Manufacturer for Pharma application.

2. On the SSCC Pool tab, choose Create SSCC Sequence.

3. On the Create SSCC Sequence window, provide the necessary details for the SSCC.


FieldAction
Extension digitEnter the extension digit for the SSCC (0-9).
GS1 PrefixEnter your GS1 company prefix. The allowed prefix length is 6 to 9 digits.
Start sequence from

Optionally, specify the number to start the sequence from. The value given here is part of the serial reference piece of your SSCC.

  • By adding a number here, you define the starting value for the serial reference piece of your SSCC. If the value is already available in the pool, the serial reference piece will take the next value that is not existing in the pool yet.
  • By leaving this field empty, the serial reference piece will start from the lowest value that is not existing in the pool yet.

For example, if you enter "200" here, and the serial reference is 7-digit long due to a 9-digit long GS1 company prefix, the first SSCC in the sequence will receive "0000200" as the serial reference, the second one will have "0000201", and so on.


If "0000200" is already available in the pool, the next value is taken that is not existing in the pool yet.

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. Choose Create.


Movilitas.Cloud creates the SSCCs based on the entered values. On the SSCC Pool screen, you can see the SSCCs you just generated and thus are available. To view the details, expand the SSCC.


For example, we are providing the following input:

  • Extension digit: "9"
  • GS1 Prefix: "012345678"
  • Start sequence from: "200"
  • Amount: "3"


The output SSCCs will be the following:

  • 901234567800002009
  • 901234567800002016
  • 901234567800002023


Next Steps


The SSCCs can be used to pack medicinal products.
