Hi everyone,

This is a friendly reminder of Saks Fifth Avenue’s current standard of only allowing one GS1-128 barcode label on the outside of a carton.

Saks recently installed a new scanner that can read seven sides of a carton and it has been tested to read through marked barcodes. Any carton with multiple 20-digit labels are being pushed to the side so that the extra labels can be manually removed. This obviously delays the shipping of cartons to the stores. Please check with your warehouse to ensure that your cartons are properly marked.

Thank you and best regards,


Sarah A Polworth
