IKEA ULL Manager
IKEA is a global company expanding rapidly. Demands of availability, lowering prices and health and safety also requires more efficient logistics, more secure and accurate data and more control over the quality in the whole Supply Chain.
IKEA hereby offers to its suppliers the access to a special unified tool called ULL Manager for Unit Load Labeling (ULL). IKEA ULL Manager is a front-end application based on latest version of NiceLabel PowerForms Suite edition.
The Unit Load Labeling (ULL) is a consistent approach throughout the IKEA Supply Chain. The purpose of the unit load label is to provide clear and brief information about the unit to which it is fastened. It uniquely identifies the logistic unit for administration and logistics purposes and provides article identification for the unit, or its contents, together with additional information concerning quality in machine readable form.
The Unit Load Labels will be printed with the Serial Shipping Container Code (SSCC) in barcode format, which makes it possible to scan the identity in every transaction or physical movement of the handling units.
