Create VDA label 4902 in SAP

The packaging data are sent by EDI in a precisely defined structure to the automobile manufacturer. As a rule, the automobile manufacturer already provides the packing instructions. If the materials are then packaged physically, the labels are also printed. Important is that the data on the label are identical to the corresponding  EDI data. When e.g. in the EDI data the unit has been transferred as package type 006280, the printer can not print 6280 on the label. That is, blanks and leading zeros in the EDI data are also to be printed on the label or coded in the barcode.

The labels are only printed for genuine packaging materials such as KLT (small load boxes), GLT and pallets. For other packaging materials such as inserts and lids, no messages are generated and no labels are printed.

Layout of VDA label 4902

There are basically two different labels:

 a)      Standard label

The standard label has the format DIN A5 and is attached to GLTs and pallets with the help of adhesive dots.
