What is a Serial Shipping Container Code (SSCC)?

The Serial Shipping Container Code (SSCC) is a unique identification number used to track and trace individual shipping containers or packages throughout the supply chain. The SSCC is typically encoded as a bar code or electronic data and can be scanned and recorded at various points in the shipping process, including when the container is loaded onto a truck or airplane, when it arrives at a warehouse or distribution center, and when it is delivered to the final destination. The SSCC helps to improve supply chain visibility and can be used for inventory management, order tracking, and logistics planning.
