Benefits of using the GS1 Logistics Label Generator
The Logistics Label Tool offers you the option to generate GS1-compliant labels without the need to install any special software on your production line.
With the Logistics Label Tool you can create one-off labels as and when you require them, with the product information required by your trading partners. This information typically includes the Global Trade Item Number (GTIN) for the item and a range of additional information including product weight, best before & other dates, serial or batch numbers or the number of items being shipped.
A unique SSCC or Serial Shipping Container Code is generated for each unit or shipment as required.
