Terms & Glossaries of Shipping and Trading
A shipping label is a type of identification label that helps describe and identify the contents of a container or a package. These labels contain crucial information like addresses, names, weight, and tracking barcodes. Hazardous cargoes have their own specific labels that must follow the shipment.
Labels are critical to both inbound and outbound logistics and are also vital to your online store’s success, reach, and customer satisfaction.
Through labels, you can monitor and keep control of your orders, create a good customer experience, increase brand loyalty and customer retention, and ultimately increase profits.
Labels play a crucial role during an inspection at any time in the supply chain management process.
A label generally has the following information specified:
Origin and destination address
Weight of the package
Internal shipping information
A bar code for tracking
Priority of the order
