A Government Recognised, Cloud-Based Industry Developed Solution for Export, Import and Meat Transfers
What does Meat Messaging do?
Meat Messaging is administered by AUS-MEAT with program management through a committee comprising of industry representatives including AUS-MEAT, DAWE, AMPC, AMIC and MLA.
The "Meat Messaging" system is an online tool for the creation, sending, receiving, attestation statements and compliance declaration of meat products (carton, carcases, carcase portions, pallets, bulk packs and containers) GS1 EANCOM messages. In addition, the Meat Messaging system also serves as a replacement to the eMTC for inter-establishment and domestication transports between one establishment to another.
These messages assist regulatory authorities with the authenticity, verification and traceability of meat products. The GS1 bar coding standards and GS1 EANCOM electronic message standards do not replace existing regulatory requirements, they assist and supplement these requirements.

Reducing Labour Costs through Slip Sheets:
Meat Messaging pallet pilot uses a slip sheet palletising with Serial Shipping Container Code (SSCC)pallet labels as a replacement for individual carton/case shipping marks.
The time saving for the unloading/inspection has been shown to be reduced to
2 people 45 minutes instead of 5 people for 45 minutes to unload a container.
A 2019 pallet pilot to Philadelphia, U.S.A demonstrated this
Using Roller Forks for Loading and Unloading: How do they work?
The Roller Forks can be used for palletless handling. Roller Forks are in fact 'standard' lift truck forks with two layers of rollers. When the under most row of rollers touches the floor, it causes the uppermost rollers to rotate in the opposite direction whereby the forks slide under the slip sheet without disturbing the products.
When the forks are lifted up, the rollers 'fall' downwards and place the products securely on the upper side of the forks, enabling the products to be unloaded in the opposite loading order and works with shipping container floors.
The basic principle is that the upper rollers rotate at exactly the same speed but in the opposite direction of the lower rollers, which are in contact with the ground. When the Roller Forks are lifted up from the ground the rollers automatically lower and the load is held on the forks.
