MIL-Comply Labeling: The Quickest and Easiest Way to Get Defense Shipments Out the Door

Comply/Labeling is the quick and easy way to create Mil-Std-129R bar code labels. Optional support for UID and RFID mandates greatly simplifies compliance with Mil-Std 129R. Automate labeling by using Electronic Awards or your own imported data. Labeling captures RFID data as labels are created for WAWF submission, making a breeze of shipments with UIDs and palletized loads. Use with Shipper to automate WAWF submissions and manage workflow.

Option adds RFID-enabled variants of standard container formats, as well as access to RFID Manager for organizing RFID data for submission to WAWF. The features include:

  • Print RFID versions of all appropriate container labels including exterior container and pallet, integrated with existing barcode labels or as additional Generic RFID labels
  • Assign RFID cases to pallets to generate RFID shipment data ready to upload to WAWF
  • Manage RFID data (add, delete, change data) for WAWF submission
This option adds features to support shipments of UID-marked items.

  • Print UID container labels (Unit and Exterior Container) with two-dimensional barcode (PDF417) compliant with Mil-Std-129 Revision R.
  • Compile and print barcoded UID Serial Number Lists
  • Print Mil-Std 130 permanent part mark labels (thermal transfer and standard Windows printers)
  • Auto-generate UIDs from discrete elements (CAGE, Part/Batch/Lot, and Serial Number)
  • Create and manage UID shipment data (add, delete, change data)
  • Create UID data for submission of WAWF Receiving Reports
Much of the data required for DIBBS and other DLA orders is available in electronic format, which can eliminate most of the data-entry required for labeling.  Use electronic (EDI) purchase orders (EDI) received from DIBBS and eMall to automate Mil-Std-129R and/or FED-123H (GSA) label printing.
With GSA contracts now shipping both to GSA and DLA locations, compliance with two different standards is required.

  • Fed-Std-123 when shipping to GSA Supply Centers
  • Mil-Std-129 when shipping to military depots

GSA QuickLabel offers both types of label formats directly in Comply/Shipper, making it easy to print labels while processing shipment Receiving Reports and Invoices for WAWF.

Lockheed Martin requires suppliers to tag inbound shipments with RFID labels. For Department of Defense (DOD) suppliers this is not a big deal, since Lockheed uses the same RFID tag (96-bit DOD) as the DOD.  Generic DOD-96 RFID labels may be used, however Lockheed would prefer labels in the format shown.  MIL-Comply Labeling supports both the special Lockheed Martin and generic formats to meet the Lockheed Martin RFID requirement.

As with Wide-Area Workflow, RFID data must be provided to Lockheed Martin prior to the shipment arriving at its destination. Without that data, the RFID tags are useless. Lockheed Martin suppliers may use LMCo’s Transportation Management System (TMS). The TMS also produces labels that identify shipment containers by the ASN Number. Suppliers sending numbers of tagged containers should contact Mil-Pac to find out about submitting Advance Shipment Notice EDI transactions to eliminate manual data-entry.

Note:  There is no such requirement for “Lockheed Martin proprietary data (to be) embedded in chip” as reported by some RFID suppliers.
