Every day warehouses and distribution centres are processing and labelling thousands of shippable units to prepare them for distribution both domestically and internationally.
Every day, these same warehouses and distribution centres may be losing valuable profits and resources due to wastage caused by employees working from conventional desktop label printers located at workstations around the warehouse. Although long considered to be a cost-effective label printing solution, large warehouses relying upon one or two stationary desktop printers are suffering wastage in several key areas:
Upgrading stationary desktop label printers to a fleet of portable label printers addresses these key areas of wastage. Portable printers improve efficiency by fully optimising and error-proofing the labelling process. By giving each operator their own portable label printer and barcode scanner, they effectively each become a mobile goods receiving centre. This improves productivity and efficiency by allowing workers to print and apply on-demand labels directly at the point of application.
In addition to saving time due to the worker no longer having to make multiple trips to the labelling workstation, this also eliminates the likelihood of mixing up batch printed labels which in turn can save thousands of dollars in potential shipping errors. An added benefit of a mobile labelling workforce is that it is increasing cost efficiencies by increasing the floor space available to the storage of inventory or shippable items.
There are a range of mobile printing solutions available, each type providing high-performance options which cater for different applications:
Compact, lightweight label printers that meet the basic printing requirements for retail, mobile Point Of Sale, hospitality, healthcare and mobile printing applications.
Compact, lightweight receipt printers that meet the printing requirements for applications including retail, mobile Point Of Sale, hospitality, healthcare and mobile field service.
Forklift printers have a small footprint which allows them to be installed in forklifts and mobile carts, where space is limited. These printers operate from a connection to a forklift’s battery, and its vibration-proof design makes it an ideal choice for warehousing logistics.
Ultra-Rugged receipt printers offer the most rugged and reliable performance for applications including route accounting, direct store delivery and field service.
