In order for a parcel to reach its postal destination, it’s crucial that the package includes multiple labels and barcodes. The shipping label ensures that your item reaches a customer as quickly and efficiently as possible.
These labelling embellishments can complicate and slow down the handling and distribution process of delivery. Print and apply labelling offers a practical, cost-effective labelling solution that ensures uniformity of standardized address elements and layouts. Reducing over-labelling on parcels and packages improves track and trace and transit times, and facilitates a speedier delivery.
The Importance Of Labelling
Labelling is a crucial part of successful logistics and product manufacturing. Within the postal service, the data that is printed on your product packaging and shipping label provides vital information. Print and apply labelling allows users to generate and apply labels onto a product and/or its packaging directly. The harmonized labels can contain far more than addressing details. Barcodes, alphanumeric text, 2D codes, serialization, and QR codes can be personalized with graphics.
Inefficiency in the labelling process can have a detrimental impact on a business, in terms of time and money. When labelling is accurate and efficient, a smooth production and delivery process is achieved. Good labelling also helps to reduce scrap reruns, human error, and the cost of labor.
Along the shipping supply chain, each key player requires a specific type of information. Shipping labels must therefore display a lot of information in a relatively small amount of space. The required standardized information includes routing and storage process details, addressing and the level of service required.
What Is A Harmonised Label?
The harmonised label is a technical initiative that allows all information to be presented in one standard label. A harmonised label enables postal service operatives to optimize the end-to-end processing of letters, packages, and parcels. The label features a standard set of symbols, including a single standardized item identifier barcode.
Meeting customer demands and core requirements is a priority for the business owner who wants to be successful. Labelling systems automatically print variable information onto self-adhesive labels in a simplified process. As items that are fragile, rugged, oddly, or unevenly shaped can create a label application challenge, different labelling techniques are required.
Print and apply labelling can range from semi-automatic labelling to fully automatic, high-speed applications, and is more reliable and considerably faster, and more accurate than the manual processes. The advanced technologies are designed to blend with your processing and packaging technology. Adding personalized labels and codes to both packaging and product can become a controlled, effortless, and automated process with the addition of a print and label system.
The all-in-one machines print variable information onto labels and apply it directly to the product. The speedy automated process offers multiple business benefits besides reducing running costs. Eliminating the need for operatives to manually print labels and stick them onto products and packaging is beneficial to the reduction of both wastage of downtime, and can certainly help to make your business more profitable.
There’s also no need to stock big amounts of labels for any specific product, as print and apply labelling allows you to print on demand.
