What is a Shipping Container Code (SCC) - 14 barcode?

The Shipping Container Code is a 14-digit barcode placed on the outside of your shipping carton or pallet. The SCC-14 allows your retailer to scan your shipment of multiple units of your product as it comes into their warehouse. This barcode is used in most retail situations and referred to by a number of names, including SCC-14, GTIN-14, ITF-14, Shipping Container Code, Master Carton Code, and others.


Why do I need Shipping Container Codes?

The SCC-14 is the common method by which your retailer scans your product shipments into inventory. You will tell your retailer how many units of your product will be included in a standard shipping carton. This information will be entered in their inventory management system. When your SCC-14 code is scanned, the system recognizes that a shipment of X number of individual units of your product arrived from your company.


Is the Shipping Container Code-14 the same as the UPC Code?

No, it is not. The SCC-14 is used to CHECK-IN your shipments of multiple units of your product at the warehouse in the back of their stores. The UPC barcode is a 12-digit unique code for your product that allows retailers to CHECK-OUT your individual units of product at the register in the front of their stores.
Letís consider the example of the Snickersģ candy bar as an example:

This image shows the UPC code printed on the individual unit of the candy. This image shows the SCC-14 code printed on the shipping container in which the manufacturer ships multiple unit of the candy bar to the retailer.


What if I have multiple items with different UPC codes within one box?

Letís assume that you pack 10 units of item A and 10 units of item B into a master carton. This is referred to as a mixed shipping container. Often this comes in the form of a mixed carton or mixed palette. Mixed shipping containers are a special case. They require a specific starting digit (called a package level indicator) and require their own unique base UPC code. You MAY NOT use the UPC from an actual item inside of the box as the base for the shipping container code for a mixed shipping container! If you are unclear about this requirement, please call us at 1-404-885-6066 for further explanation.


Can I purchase an Shipping Container Code-14 code without having a UPC code?

No, you cannot. The SCC-14 is used to identify a shipment of multiple units of a given product. The individual product must have a UPC code first in order to create the SCC-14 code for its shipping carton. SCC-14 codes require an associated UPC code. They go together. You can purchase your UPC and SCC-14 codes at the same time or add the SCC-14 codes later.
