Shenzhen Mail Processing and Logistics Distribution Center implemented barcode management. When a barcode is applied in the whole process, no barcode printing mistake is tolerated. China Post, constantly in pursuit of high efficiency and accuracy, sets high requirements for the stability and durability of label printers.
Buy a book online in the morning, receive it in the afternoon, and then sit on the couch that evening with a cup of coffee and enjoy reading. E-commerce is booming bringing people easy and economical online shopping, timely and convenient delivery, and a joyful shopping experience. With more attention on barcode tracking, national enterprises like Postek, play an indispensable role in driving the development of barcode printing and management.
At present, China Post, the backbone of the logistics industry in China, is one of the broadest in distribution with the most complete delivery variety, and at the largest scale. Closely connected to people's daily lives, China Post delivers large quantities of online goods, products, and documents every day. With the rapid development of the economy, commodity circulation and information exchange are becoming increasingly frequent and fast, which calls for a highly efficient logistics system. Logistics is so important to the economy and society, that the local post system must be able to match the demand of consumers. The growth of the local economy requires comparable support of the growing logistics industry. As a result, the development of the local logistics industry becomes an important symbol of modernization and comprehensive strength.
Barcode Technology Lays the Foundation for Logistics Informationization
In 2002, Guangdong, in partnership with China Post, a pioneer of China's Reforming and Opening policy, invested RMB 300,000,000 in the Shenzhen Bao'an International Airport to establish the Shenzhen Mail Processing and Logistics Distribution Center, which initiated service in 2006. This distribution center has become the second largest mail processing and logistics distribution center in Guangdong, as well as being the backbone of the national post and logistics industry.
Shenzhen Mail Processing and Logistics Distribution Center is closely tied to the local economy and has been providing overall support for local economic growth. Not only does the Center deal with various types of mail including bale, flat, letter, international mail, EMS, imported newspaper and business letter, but it also covers businesses for local mail transfer (including air transfer), logistics, warehousing and distribution. Furthermore, the center also exports mail and parcels in Shenzhen, Dongguan and Huizhou. In the context of modern logistics, only hi-tech logistics systems with high reliability and efficiency can meet the needs of rapid economic growth. The faster the local economy develops, the higher the volume of the logistics business, and the greater the business varieties, which sets a high standard for business operation speed and accuracy, presenting difficult challenges for the logistics industry. Located at the Pearl River Delta, where economy is developing extremely fast, Shenzhen Mail Processing and Logistics Distribution Center is faced with such challenges.
The informationization and intelligentialization of the logistics industry ensure high efficiency and high reliability, in which barcode technology plays an important role and is widely applied. Barcode data collection is featured by high efficiency and high accuracy, which simplifies logistics management as well as improves efficiency, accuracy and reliability of the logistics system. The informationization of the logistics industry is based on barcode information management, so to speak.
Large Logistics Operation Needs Strong Technical Support
Shenzhen Mail Processing and Logistics Distribution Center implemented barcode management. After scanning, a barcode is automatically recognized in the Post operation platform; mail from different districts are collected and sorted according to their barcode; package labels are automatically generated on the Post operation platform and will be printed out and hung on parcels to ensure timely and accurate delivery.
As a barcode is applied in the whole process, no barcode printing mistake is tolerated. China Post, constantly in pursuit of high efficiency and accuracy, sets steep requirements for the stability and durability of label printers. Every day, thousands of mail and parcels are being processed at Shenzhen Mail Processing and Logistics Distribution Center, requiring non-stop, fully-loaded, high-speed printing, bringing difficult challenges for each printer. Non-stop longstanding printing is the basic need of postal logistics; but not all types of printer can achieve it. If the printouts on parcel labels are not clear or mistakenly printed, the following operations will be directly influenced. Since large logistics calls for strong support, Shenzhen Mail Processing and Logistics Distribution Center desperately tried to find a perfect print solution.
Postek Support the Application of Barcode in Large Logistic
Finally, Shenzhen Mail Processing and Logistics Distribution Center found Postek printers.
During previous product tests and trials, what troubled Shenzhen Mail Processing and Logistics Distribution Center most was the high malfunction rate, especially the frequent breakdown of vulnerable parts, leading to low efficiency and high cost. Furthermore, the troublesome operations of lower quality printers caused problems in collecting and sorting mail, which poorly affected operational efficiency.
Postek barcode printers show their strength in an intense working environment. According to the project leader, Postek barcode printers showed a low malfunction rate during printing, and their durable printhead, clear printout, and longstanding printing significantly increased operational efficiency while saving maintenance cost.
Postek barcode printers greatly satisfied the needs of Shenzhen Mail Processing and Logistics Distribution Center. And the clear printout including words and barcodes, enables faster data access, puts an end to unrecognized information caused by unclear labels, and ensures the liability of the logistics system.
Postek actively cooperated with Shenzhen Mail Processing and Logistics Distribution Center by providing customized models which can seamlessly integrated with the current postal operation platform. The customized printers feature easy and convenient installation and operation, in which no intermediate control or special settings are needed. These light, space-saving printers are easy to move when the desired printing location changes.
High efficiency and professional localization service provided by Postek helps customers solve their problems and perfectly fulfills their needs. Postek will continue to work together with Shenzhen Mail Processing and Logistics Distribution Center to drive efficient logistics.
