3 1. Introduction Supply Chain Excellence is by Volvo Car Corporation (VCC) set to be one of the key areas in order to be a competitive and attractive Car Brand to the Customer. To be able to reach this goal, the supply chain with its different processes, has been well developed to work as a lean and effective part in the Material Planning and Logistic flow. An example of this is re-use of information in the Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) messages and having an automatic scanning of the Odette Transport Label (OTL) in the goods receiving area. In the lean and effective goods receiving process at VCC it is set up a fully automatic process with no manual interference of the administrational information. Suppliers delivering parts to VCC must therefore be able to implement the OTL according to the VCC demands specified in this guideline. The OTL is intended to be used in the complete supply chain for all Transport packages shipped to any of VCC goods receiving areas. The information on the OTL must be used in conjunction with the Advanced Shipping Notification (ASN) in the Dispatch Advice message (AVIEXP/DESADV) transmitted from the shipping part in the supply chain. In this guideline, you will find information and demands how to create a proper OTL. VCC has taken in consideration all quality standards that follows with OTL handling within the Automotive Industry. Updates in this revision (1.5) is in first line to give more detailed information regarding paper quality and printer information and recommendations. There are also added information describing the Optic/Reflectance verification methode of a bar code. 3
4 2. Paper, Size and Materials The format of the OTL is A5 (210x148 mm). The OTL paper must be white with black printing. The label material has to have a weight of not less than g/m². This is to assure the OTL information being readable in the complete supply chain. An adhesive OTL must be used on Transport packages of Homogenous- and Mixed character, using Label holder (see chapter 9 and 10.2 page 25) and plastic- or cartoon boxes. The adhesive OTL material, exclusive the back-side paper, has to have a weight of not less than 80 g/m². Adhesive labels may be pressure-sensitive or dry-gummed as long as the adherence to the package surface is assured and that the OTL is removable from the Transport package after usage. The adhesive should be of alkaline water-soluble kind to be approved in environmental aspects. Recommendations of which OTL printer paper to be used, has to be requested by the OTL paper supplier. For Direct Thermo it is recommended to use minimum Semi Thermal paper. The label must be durable enough to ensure readability at its destination, i.e. being water and sun resistant. Illustration below describes the full size of an OTL, figures in millimeter (mm). Notice! Not actual size
5 3. Printers and Software To ensure readability of the bar codes, a very high print quality is demanded. Therefore VCC recommends using either a Direct Thermo or Thermo Transfer printers as they are more suitable for industrial printing and are more robust for the environment its working in. A Direct Thermo printer is considered to be less expensive, more environmental friendly and demands less maintenence. This due to e.g. no use of foil. In most cases a Thermo Transfer printer can easily be transferred to a Direct Thermo printer. If a Laser printer is used to print the OTL it must be, by the printer manufacturer, recommended for industrial use and printing. This since a Laser printer is more sensitive to the environment it is working in. A configuration of the printing set up which allows edge compensation is NOT allowed as this will have a negative effect on the printed barcode. A Laser printer is considered to best suitable when only small series of OTL's are printed. This due to high working expenses. Matrix printers are NOT allowed in any supply chain to VCC because of low print quality aspects. It is most important that the recommended maintenance of the printer is followed according to the given instruction by the printer manufacturer. If the printer is located in a very dirty/dusty environment it is recommended that the maintenance of the printer is carried out more often than the recommendation says. If the environment is of extreme character it is needed to take in consideration adding a "hood cover" to the printer. It is recommended that within a purchase of a printer also include a support agreement with the printer supplier. If changes or a modification is needed of the OTL, this support is valuable not to interfere with any part of the supply chain. To secure that a change of printer or software does not interfere with any aspects of the supply chain, VCC requests that the supplier inform the affected goods receiving sites. There might be a need of a new verification of the OTL. 5
6 4. Data Area Layout Data Area The size of each data area is defined to fit the content. Considering font size, bar code heights and dimensions. Outer border line (frame) should not be printed on the OTL. This to provide the best reading possibilities of the bar code (see Quiet zone in chapter Bar code symbologies). Each data area should be separated by thin lines. The illustration below shows the layout of the OTL, figures in millimeter (mm). Notice! Not actual size , ,5 23 Characters Any readable character set can be used, but the Odette recommendations are the following: Font: Helvetica bold e.g. OTL / Character Set: ISO Titles and Identifier Codes In the upper left corner of each data area, the Data Area titles shall be printed. This information is allowed to be printed in any language. Font size to be used is 1.5 mm. Data Identifiers shall be printed as a part of the Data area title, at the end of the title and within brackets, e.g.. Further information regarding Data Identifiers is to be found in the Data Area Table in chapter 5.1, column Data Identifiers. 6
7 5. Data Area Content Data printed on the OTL must be consistent with the data collected from the Delivery Schedules (DELINS/DELFOR) and in conjunction with the ASN message (AVIEXP/DESADV). The data information in readable text must be printed above and in conjunction with the bar code, e.g. Advice note number. Conditional Data Areas (Occasionally or Dependent information) which are not required by any agreement between VCC and the respective supplier, must be left blank. See Data Area Table in chapter 5.1. Non-significant (leading) zeros and blanks/spaces in the data string should be suppressed/deleted, when the bar code and/or human readable characters are printed. The OTL is divided into two sections: Shipping section, Dock/Gate, Advice Note number,, Net weight, Gross weight and Number of boxes. Parts Identification section Part number, Quantity, Supplier, Serial Number,, Area,, Engineering change and Batch number. The Data Areas are numbered from 1 to 16 and should be read together with information given in chapter 5.1, 5.2 and 5.3. Notice! Not actual size.

Dock/Gate Alphanumerical human readable text Designated by VCC This information must be flexible as it might be changed from one shipment to another due to changes in production. The information must be collected from the latest delivery schedule DELFOR/DELINS. 3. Advice note number (N) Bar Code and Alphanumerical human readable text Designated by Supplier Within VCC the Advice Note Number is used and matched to the information given in the Advance Ship Notice (AVIEXP/DESADV). The number may not be repeated within 12 months. Remark: Some recipients may have restrictions on the data format. 4. Alphanumerical human readable text Designated by Supplier Name and shipping address of the supplier and country of origin. 5. Net weight Numeric Value Designated by Supplier Weight of goods in kilogram (kg) excluding transport packaging. Unit of measurement must be printed in the title of the field in brackets. 6. Gross weight Numeric Value Designated by Supplier Weight of goods in kilogram (kg) including transport packaging. 7. Number of boxes Numeric Value Designated by Supplier Number of boxes on the transport unit. Is mainly used on Small box shipments. 9
10 Parts Identification Section 8. Part number (P) Bar Code and Numeric human readable text Designated by VCC Part number is designated by VCC for the product in the package. 9. Bar Code and Numeric human readable text Designated by Supplier Quantity in the package shall be according to VCC packing instruction and its unit load or a multiple of it. Default the unit of measurement is pieces (PCE) and is not needed to be given. However, if it is kg, pairs, meters etc., the type code must be given in human readable form. When used, the unit of measurement must be printed directly to the right of the human readable quantity. 10. Alphabetical human readable text Designated by VCC of articles or products is according to what is given on the drawing. 11. Logistics reference Supplier owned Designated by Supplier Information is given to improve the logistics between the supplier and VCC. This area is normally reserved for the Supplier s part number. However, if agreed by the supplier, the area may be used to print alternative data as specified by VCC. Please find the possible alternative data in the Odette Transport Label Version 1 Revision 4 (to be found at under publications If a supplier likes to add an internal bar code in the area it is necessary to adapt to the FACT DI-Standard. This to prevent misreading when automatic scanning is used. 12. Bar Codes and Alphanumerical human readable text Designated by VCC The supplier code of the Manufacturing site. 13. Alphanumerical human readable text Designated by Supplier of dispatch (stated at first hand) or date of production. The date must be printed in the format YYMMDD (Y = year, M = month, D = day) preceded by the character "D (Dispatch date) or P (Production date). 14. Engineering change Alphanumerical human readable text Designated by VCC To specify engineering changes. Information may be coded (e.g. P-04) or in clearer (e.g. pre serial etc). 15. Serial Master label number (S, M or G) Bar Code and Numeric human readable text Designated by Supplier The serial number must be a unique number (not necessarily in sequential order) assigned by the supplier. The number may not be repeated within 12 months. Identifiers S, M or G are assigned according to label usage, see Chapter 9. 10
11 16. Batch number (H) Bar Code and Characters Designated by Supplier Is a Reference number to designate grouping of products of VSP-parts (Vital Safety Parts) within the same production batch. Indicators Marks may be printed as graphic symbols or applied as stickers in the Data area of Part number as long as it does not impair reading of the printed bar code (quite zone and bar code).

13 6. Bar Code Symbologies Bar codes must be of the 3-of-9 (code 39) type with the following requirements: Code Configuration The format for each bar code-element is: Start character, Identifier (Data Identifier), Data characters and Stop character. All bar coded areas are printed left justified. Inter-character gap The space between two bars in code 39 should be as close to the average narrow element width as is practical. Quiet zones Bar codes require a quiet zone to the left and right of the bar/space pattern. Begin and end margins (quiet zones) must be at least 6.4 mm so that no line or similar (e.g. staples, straps or fixation stickers) makes the decoding of the bar code impossible. Quiet Zone Inter-characters gap Quiet Zone Start Character Identifier Data characters Stop Character Bar code heights The height of the bar code must be 13 mm. This to give the best possible scanning possibilities as the area allows. Narrow element and Ratio Narrow element is the smallest bar element in the bar code. Narrow element can also be named as X- dimension. Narrow element is allowed to be set between 0,33-0,43 mm. VCC recommends the modulation to be set to 0,33 mm. (Some printers having minimum 200 dpi the recommendation is 0,375 mm.) The Ratio is the proportion between narrow and wide element in the bar code. VCC recommends using the following table to set the Ratio. This to use the most of the data area and make the bar code less vulnerable. Narrow element Maximum Ratio 0,33 3,0 0,36 2,8 0,40 2,4 13
14 7. Bar Code Quality Quality VCC is leaning on the ISO/IEC standard, Bar Code Quality Test Specification Linear Symbols. - Minimum Overall Symbol Grade is set to B - Nominal measuring Aperture is set to be 10 mil - Wave length of light is set to 660 nm In all this gives: B/10/660 The result of the Symbol Grade is defined with the letters/qualifiers from A to D and F as for failure. The following 7 parameters are measured: Parameter Symbol Grade Explanation VCC Reference code / Pass or Fail Wrong set up of bar code A Decode Symbol contrast A, B, C, D or F The difference between the highest and the lowest B (SC) reflectance in the whole symbol, including quite zone Minimum Edge Pass or Fail The worst reflectance difference between a bar and a A contrast (Ecmin) space in a symbol Modulation A, B, C, D or F The ratio between edge contrast and symbol contrast B Minimum Pass or Fail The reflectance of the black bar must be lower than A Reflectance (R.min/R.max) half of the maximum reflectance in the symbol Defects A, B, C, D or F Dirty label or white lines/dots in bar code B Decodability A, B, C, D or F How much of the tolerance has been used B Reference code / Decode A bar code will Pass on Decode when the established bar and space widths can be converted into the correct series of valid characters using the standard Reference Decode algorithm for a given symbology and or application. Symbol contrast (SC) is the difference between the highest reflectance value and the lowest value anywhere in the scan reflectance profile, including the quite zone. Edge contrast (ECmin) Each transition from a bar to a space, or a space to a bar, treating the quiet zones as spaces, is an "edge" whose contrast is determined as the difference between the peak values of space reflectance and bar reflectance in that space and that bar. Modulation is to do with how a scanner "sees" wide elements (bar or spaces) relative to narrow elements, as represented by reflectance values in the profile. Minimum Reflectance (Rmin/Rmax) The reflectance for at least one bar must be equal to or less than half the highest reflectance value for a space. Defects are voids found in the bars or spots found in the spaces and quiet zones of the bar code, and show as an irregularity in the reflectance profile of the bar or space. Decodability is the measure of the accuracy of the printed bar code against the appropriate reference decode algorithm. Scan Grade is the lowest grade obtained for any of the quality parameter in the scan reflectance profile. Overall Symbol Grade is based on ten scan profiles, and the average of their resultant scan grades defined in table above. VCC expect ALL parameters to be measured to give an Overall Symbol Grade as minimum B. 14

16 8. Bar Code Verification Verification The verification is focusing on two areas. 1. The link between the information given in the Delivery Schedule (DELINS/DELFOR), ASN (AVIEXP/DESADV) and the OTL. 2. The layout of the OTL and the quality of the bar codes. The supplier will receive a request of sending in re-printed samples of the OTL linked to a specific shipment. It is important that the OTL is printed on the original printer and on the recommended paper quality, when the verification is carried out. The OTL samples shall be sent by express post mail to the owner of the request. (A verification of an OTL sent in via or fax is not considered to full verification. This as a verification of bar code is not possible if it is sent in via or fax as the printing and paper media is not what will be used from supplier side when set up in running production environment.) The quality verification of the bar codes will only be given in an Over All Symbol grading. Supplier is therefore requested to contact its Supporting organization (Printer supplier) in this matter. 16
17 9. Package and Transport Label The Odette organisation has identified two levels of using an OTL. The Master Labels (Handling unit) These are used to label individual or a group of packages in order to keep them together in a single consignment. The shipping details, the receiver and delivery point fields are always filled in. There are three types of master transport labels: Standard Type Master Label (S) Simplified Handling unit This label is used to identify single transport packages that contain either loose parts or many packages sent in a bin or crate and too small to be labelled individually. The standard Master Label has both the shipping details and the part detail fields completed. The quantity is linked to the agreed unit load given in the Packaging instruction Master Type Label (M) Homogenous Handling unit This is used on a transport unit constituted of a number of packages containing exactly the same part number. Each including box should have a Standard label (S) attached to it. The quantity is linked to a multiple of the agreed unit load given in the Packaging instruction. Group Type Label (G) Mixed Handling unit This is similar to the Master Type Label but is used on a transport unit constituted of a number of packages containing mixed part numbers. Each one of the individual packages would have a Standard label (S) attached to it. No part number or quantity is given. The Standard Label (S) is to be used on small boxes or cardboard boxes. This is attached directly to the package containing one or more parts of the same type. It is simply used to identify the contents of the package and does not contain any shipping details. The shipping details might be omitted. Only to be used in conjunction with Master Type Label (M) and Group Type Label (G). 17
18 9.1 Usage of Package and Transport labels Standard Type Master Label (S) Are used for one of the following set ups: Pallet incl. frames Pallet with carton boxes Pallet with carton box Racks In conclusion: when a single Transport Handling unit has been given a unit load by VCC (see Packaging Instruction). Master Type Label (M) and Group Type Label (G) Are used for one of the following set ups: -780 small boxes -840/-790 boxes In conclusion: Master Type Label (M): when a multiple of packages containing the same part number with a unit load given by VCC (see Packaging Instruction), and fixed to a pallet and lid. Group Type Label (G): when a multiple of packages containing different part numbers, where each part number has been given a unit load by VCC (see Packaging Instruction), and fixed to a pallet and lid. 18
19 Standard label (S) Are used for one of the following set ups: -780 small box -840 small box Might also be used when a multiple of card board boxes are used and fixed to a pallet and the unit load is linked to a single card board box. 19
20 9.2 Simplified Handling Unit (S) Odette reference for simplified handling unit (S): Consists of one package which is a handling unit at the same time. VCC refers the unit load to one handling unit. On 6 th of March 2001, the VCC supplier has one outgoing delivery of a product with part number , to be delivered to VCC, Plant VOLVO TORSLANDA MONTERING, and Dock/Gate TVV. The product is packed in packages of 128 pieces on an L-pallet with four frames and a lid. Carrier CARGOCARE makes delivery to VCC directly to the specified delivery address. With the current syntax rules and in accordance with VCC s specification, the notification is as follows: Standard Type Master Label (S) VOLVO TORSLANDA MONTERING SUPPLIER NAME TVV 123 VOLVO TORSLANDA MONTERING SUPPLIER NAME TVV One Standard Master Type Label (S) shall be fixed on each Transport Handling unit. 20
21 9.3 Homogenous Handling Unit (M) Odette reference for homogenous handling unit (M): Small boxes containing the same article number fixed on a pallet. VCC refers the unit load to one small box or similar. On 6 th of March 2001, the Volvo Car supplier has one outgoing delivery of a product with part number , to be delivered to VCC, Plant VOLVO TORSLANDA MONTERING, and Dock/Gate TVV. The product is packed in 16 small boxes of 56 pieces in each on an L-pallet and a lid, in all 896 pieces. Carrier CARGOCARE makes delivery to VCC directly to the specified delivery address. With the current syntax rules and in accordance with VCC s specification, the notification is as follows: Master Type Label (M) VOLVO TORSLANDA MONTERING SUPPLIER NAME TVV Serial Number (M) 191 One Standard Label (S) shall be fixed on each small box and one Master Type Label (M) should be fixed on a cardboard Label Holder, emb 153 (see picture in chapter 10.2), on the pallet. Standard Type label (S) - 4 OTL out of 16 Supplier adress Notice: Information in the shipping section might be omitted at the Standard labels (S). A Homogenous Handling unit using small box as transport package shall always have full layers. To complete a layer it might be needed to add one to three empty boxes. If any small box is shipped empty, this one should NOT be marked with an OTL. E.g. transport package -780 has the possibility of maximum 4 layers (4/8/12/16 small boxes depending on the call off quantity) and transport package -840/-790 has the possibility of maximum 4 layers, (2/4/6/8 small boxes depending on the call off quantity). 21
22 Application Of Odette Transport Label Vers. 1 Rev Mixed Handling Unit (G) Odette reference for mixed handling unit (G): Small boxes containing different article numbers fixed on a pallet. VCC refers the unit load to one small box. On 6 th of March, the VCC supplier has one outgoing delivery of products with Part numbers and , to be delivered to VCC, Plant VOLVO TORSLANDA MONTERING, and Dock/Gate TVV. Part no is packed in 8 small boxes of 112 pieces in each, in all 896 pieces. Part number is packed in 8 small boxes of 56 pieces in each, in all 448 pieces. Both part numbers and small boxes are fixed on an L-pallet and a lid. Carrier CARGOCARE makes delivery to VCC directly to the specified delivery address. With the current syntax rules and in accordance with VCC s specification, the notification is as follows: Group Type Label (G) VOLVO TORSLANDA MONTERING SUPPLIER NAME TVV Serial Number (G) 123 One Standard Type Label (S) shall be fixed on each small box and one Group Type Label (G) should be fixed on a cardboard label holder, emb 153 (see chapter 10.2), on the pallet. Standard Labels (4 OTL out of 8 art ) Standard Labels (4 OTL out of 8 art ) Notice: Information in the shipping section might be omitted at the Standard labels (S). A Homogenous Handling unit using small box as transport package shall always have full layers. To complete a layer it might be needed to add one to three empty boxes. If any small box is shipped empty, this one should NOT be marked with an OTL. E.g. transport package -780 has the possibility of maximum 4 layers (4/8/12/16 small boxes depending on the call off quantity) and transport package -840/-790 has the possibility of maximum 4 layers, (2/4/6/8 small boxes depending on the call off quantity). 22
23 10. Position and Affixing of the Label To facilitate the best possible reading environment for scanning the bar code there are a number of prerequisites to fulfil and prepare before the shipping to VCC. VCC has produced an OTL poster which describes in a visual way the below given statements, to be found in Chapter 12. The poster can be ordered from your Logistic contact at VCC. 23
24 10.1 Positioning on Transport Handling Unit (where) Simplified Handling unit (Pallet, frames and lid or Pallet and closed card board box): The OTL should always be placed in the left hand short end corner. Exception 1: On K-pallets (820x615mm) the OTL shall be placed in the middle at the bottom frame. Exception 2: On H- (1805x820mm), F- (1630x1220mm) and E- (2400x820mm) pallets the OTL shall be placed at the left hand long side corner. Simplified Handling unit (Racks): Place the OTL in the Rack Label holder at the predefined area. Homogenous- and Mixed Handling units (Pallet, Small boxes and lid or Pallet, card board boxes, with or without lid): The Master Label should be fixed on a Label holder. This Label holder should be placed under the Small box/card board box at the bottom short end left hand corner. 1. The Standard label should be fixed on the short end of small box The Standard label should be fixed on the long end of small box -840/-790. In both set ups named above the Standard labels has to be pointing outwards from the short end of the Transport Handling unit, in the meaning all labels should be visual. 24
25 10.2 Affixing on Handling Unit (how) General OTLs are always fixed in a horizontal way using staples to wooden frames or glued on surface to small boxes, card board boxes and label holders. Straps or bundling of the Transport Handling unit shall always work on the long side of the pallet. Other labels or markings on the Transport Handling unit shall be removed before the dispatch to VCC. This as it may interfere in the automatic scanning process as well as it may affect the automatic storage process, e.g. Supplier Internal labels. If plastic hood cover is used to ensure a water resistant transport unit, the OTL shall be fixed on the inside of this. Simplified Handling unit (Pallet, frames and lid): OTL shall be fixed with staples. One staple in each corner and one in the middle. If self-adhesive label material is used, do NOT remove the back paper. Simplified Handling unit (Pallet and closed card board box): Self-adhesive label material shall be used. Simplified Handling unit (Racks): OTL shall be placed in the Rack Label holder with no fixing arrangement. If self-adhesive label material is used, do NOT remove the back paper. 25
26 Homogenous- and Mixed Handling unit (Pallet, Small boxes and lid or Pallet, card board boxes, with or without lid): Self-adhesive label material shall be used. Master label shall be fixed on a Label holder. (Label Holder is ordered via Volvo Logistics as emb. 153.) Emb small box -840 small box 26
27 10.3 Checklist when Preparing a Transport Unit to VCC Using staples: Do NOT put any staples in the bar code. The bar code will then be damaged and unreadable to read via scanning device. Do NOT put any staples as close to the bar code as the quite zone will be affected It is NOT allowed to use staples on small boxes. Stickers or Tape: Do NOT use any of this as it might affect the reading possibility of the bar code. Straps: Shall NOT cover any part of the OTL. Using Transparent plastic bags to fix the OTL in: Are NOT allowed as the reflection of this makes the bar code not readable. Supplier labels or other material that might interfere scanning or storing of Transport unit: There should only be one label on each handling unit. Remove all non-significant labels. Supplier or Forwarder unique labels are NOT allowed and shall be removed. When attaching the OTL on wooden frames, VCC recommends the supplier to use a staple device like shown below in picture. 27
