Labelling for e-commerce
E-commerce is fast becoming the channel of choice for businesses and consumers. In 2020, more than 5 billion parcels were moved from and within Great Britain, a rise of 33% on the previous year.
Any parcel entering the e-commerce supply chain, be that a box or a bag, requires an identification label which will contain unique barcode information. This is scanned at various points through the supply chain from dispatch to its final delivery destination. This carrier label or shipping label is unique to each customer and will also often include name and address information and returns address details. In the last few years, the use of 2D barcodes allows for more information to be embedded into the barcode than is possible with a 1D code.
This carrier label or shipping label is unique to each customer and will also often include name and address information and returns address details. In the last few years the use of 2D barcodes now allows far more information to be embedded into the barcode than is possible with a 1D code.
Each carrier such as; DPD, Royal Mail, UK Mail, Hermes, DHL, to name a few - has its own specific design of label. They do however tend to have a generic size of 4 x 6 inch, but the purpose of the label is the same in all cases and that is to ensure that the package gets to its intended destination.
Solutions by Clearmark
CN22 Dual Label Ecomm Solution
This system simultaneously applies both the carrier label and the CN22 label to moving packs. By using dual ICE Vulcan Print and Apply printers, the system is able to apply labels on the bottom and on the top of each pack.
The challenge was to be able to apply 2 labels on each pack where both would not be able to fit on a single face of the pack, whilst also ensuring throughput was uncompromised.
The solution is particularly useful for streamlining a UK based international E-Comm operation. Increasing throughput, improving accuracy, and reducing manual labour cost.
