Shipping Container Code is also known as U.P.C. Shipping Container Code, or SCC-14, GTIN-14. It is a 14-digit number used to mark cartons, pallets and shipping cases.
SCC-14 is most widely implemented by GS1-128 (formerly known as UCC/EAN-128). Meanwhile, SCC-14 can also be implemented by ITF-14.
ITF-14 means using Interleaved 2of5 barcode with 14-digits number.
When you use ITF-14 (Interleaved 2of5) to implement SCC-14 barcode, you need one-digit Packaging Indicator, 2-digits UPC numbering system, 5-digits Manufacturer Identification Number, 5-digit item number. The last digit will be calculated as check digit.
Packaging Indicator can be one of the following values:
0 means UPC code on the shipping case is different from what's inside.
1 to 7 is used to indicate packaging level.
8 is reserved for future use.
9 means variable quantity shipment.
The lines surrounding the barcode are called bearer bars. They are used to make sure no part is missing when the barcode is scanned.
For example, you have a UPC-A barcode 032886673184 to be turned into ITF-14 Shipping Container Code.
Please remove the check digit "4" first. Then add 1 in the front as Packaging Indicator. Then add a zero to make it 14-digits in total length.
Now, your Master Carton Code is 1003288667318.
After checksum calculation, you get check digit as 1.
Therefore, your Master Carton Code is 10032886673181.
