Companies have to comply with a number of labeling requirements on the manufacturing floor. These rules are put in place to make sure cases and boxes can be processed, shipped, and tracked efficiently, but this only works if the labeling is done properly.
Many manufacturers continue to rely on outdated labeling technology that print illegible labels or place them incorrectly, creating costly errors. Charge-backs and other problems with shipping and handling can quickly add up and hurt a company’s bottom line.
High-performance box labeling machines can be used to print and quickly apply crisp, clear labels to cases and boxes at a low cost, helping companies prevent errors and improve supply chain efficiencies.

Case Labeling FAQs
What is a case label?
Cases are considered an individual logistics unit, so they will need a Serial Shipping Container Code (SSCC) that “acts as a license plate to track a shipment of logistics units through the supply chain.”
Case labeling best practices
Similar to pallet labels, case labels should be made of a hardy material that can withstand the harsh environments a case may experience as it moves through the supply chain. Labels should also be crisp with clear printing so employees and scanners can easily read the information and process it accurately.
Labels should be applied smoothly onto the case or box, without wrinkles, so that scanners can easily read the information printed. According to gs1us.org, each case should have at least one barcode, but it is recommended to add another on the adjacent side so it can be easily scanned if turned sideways in a truck or warehouse rack.
