Correct labelling and information is the basis for timely and efficient shipments. Proper use of labels defines a consignment - for both parties.
Standard transport label
All cargo must be clearly labelled, and consistent with electronically transmitted consignment information.
In cases where the information is not transmitted electronically, the consignment is registered manually.
Standard shipping labels (102x192mm) to be used, and all information shall be readable both digitally and manually.
The following minimum requirements apply to content and labelling:
Labels to include information about:
- The senders name reference number
- Recipient with complete address, reference number and telephone number
- Delivery instructions
- Number of packages
- Labels must include a barcode with the waybill number, also called the consignment number, and its own barcode for “package ID".
- Labels to be easily visible on all packages.
- Labels should not be wrapped around edges/corners, as then they cannot be scanned.
All packages handled through our terminals are labelled with their own sorting label which includes: date, time, route and services.
