Automated Parcel Tracking
and express delivery firms can accurately track individual items
throughout all stages of the supply chain network. using smart labels.
Leading label converters who serve this industry have integrated
smart labels into standard label stock. When the parcel label is
created in a printer, the smart label is programmed with pertinent
information such as tracking number, sender/receiver, and final
destination while a bar code and human readable information are
printed. Labels can be updated at any point; parcels can be re-routed
while in transit; and multiple packages can be read at conveyor
speeds of up to 2 meters per second.
The same priciples can apply to baggage tracking at airports, taxi
and limousine services, bus stations, or at resorts.
Individual businesses can use automated parcel tracking to route
mail bins through a company's mail system, enabling accurate delivery
of mail and packages over widely distributed facilities.
