Transport & Logistics - Labels to Go!

Despite the economic downturn, Transport and Logistics segment remains the largest (by volume) user of Variable Information Printed (VIP) labels.  The T&L segment cuts across every industry and generally involves the application of a barcode printed label onto the outer packaging of goods to facilitate the tracking and tracing of those items through storage and distribution.  T&L applications generally fall into either airline bag tags, parcel distribution or pallet labeling.  The primary attributes provided by the labels include:

  • Product tracking and tracing
  • Product/part identification
  • Branding and promotion
  • Added functionality

Thermal transfer, direct thermal and laser are the predominate VIP label products used in T&L label applications.  These systems offer easy print and apply, good barcode readability, good adhesion to a variety of carton and packaging materials, ability to combine human readable and barcode onto one label and DT/TT printers are robust, portable and can stand-alone or be networked.

ID Images offers label media solutions for the T&L segment.  Whether you're looking for thermal transfer, ribbons, direct thermal, integrated labels or laser media, we have a solution for you.  We offer a variety of paper and film products depending on your application.  Take a look at our large stock product offering or our robust custom label capabilities.  Our products are available in roll, fanfold, perforated or non-perforated to accommodate any printer and label application method (i.e., hand apply versus auto-apply).  We also offer various core sizes from 3/4" to 4" as well as long length rolls for print and apply applications.  The small core sizes, like 3/4" and 1", are ideal for portable printers.

Contact us for more information on our products and services.

Benefits Of Package Design 

For over 150 years, manufacturers of products in nearly every shape and size have relied on corrugated and/or fibreboard packaging to market their goods and provide containers that are easy to transport and store from factory to store to consumer.  Source: ArticleSnatch (Chris Renilson)

Medical Labeling

Medical labeling is unlike other sectors of the labeling industry.  Here, it's not about shelf appeal, eye-catching sheen, or labels that "pop."  Source: Label & Narrow Webb (Steve Katz)
