Have you been told by the major retailers to start producing pallet labels and don't know where to start? You don't know your SSCC from your GTIN? Have you been told that Tesco TIMS produces a pallet label but don't know if you can use it? Then help is at hand as CHS have a solution for you.
If you are as big as Nestle then you can afford fully-automatic pallet labelling systems. If you are not quite as large as them yet, then you need to start with a smaller solution. The CHS manual pallet labelling system could be the answer to your problems. It has been designed for small and medium sized businesses to produce SSCC pallet labels for Tesco, Sainsbury or any of the major retailers simply, quickly and efficiently. It takes the pain out of producing industry-standard pallet labels that are acceptable to all the major retailers leaving you to get on with what you do best - making your products.
The system consists of a pallet label printer, labels, ribbons, cables and the Seagull Bartender label design software, everything you need straight out of the box to produce pallet labels. We have designed it to be simple and robust, with minimal amounts of operator-entered information thus reducing the opportunity to make mistakes. Compatible with all of the major retailers requirements it will produce pallet labels to industry standards and generate your SSCC numbers and barcodes for you automatically, so you do not need to know the difference between GTIN's and SSCC's.
Although the system is stand-alone and does not need costly integration into your EDI system, all of the label information is available either printed or electronically. As you grow you may wish to have your EDI supplier incorporate the SSCC numbers into your backoffice systems so that the information is automatically transmitted to the retailer. Even though it is stand-alone today it can be linked to your systems in the future as you grow.
