1. Overview #
Self-adhesive labels play a crucial role in the express logistics industry, providing the foundation for package tracking, sorting, delivery, and information management. These labels need to be highly adaptable to meet the demands of various environments and operations.
2. Product Features #
2.1 Easy to Identify and Read #
Self-adhesive labels required in the express logistics industry must ensure that the text, numbers, and barcodes or QR codes on them can be clearly identified and read under different environmental and lighting conditions.
2.2 Wear-resistant and Resistant to Harsh Environments #
From receipt, sorting, transportation to delivery, labels need to endure various harsh physical and environmental conditions. Therefore, wear resistance, humidity resistance, UV resistance, and resistance to high and low temperatures have become essential characteristics of labels.
2.3 Rich Information #
Self-adhesive labels usually need to carry a lot of information, including but not limited to sender information, recipient information, package content information, waybill number, date, and possible QR codes, etc.
3. Printing Requirements #
3.1 Clarity #
Whether it is human or machine, it needs to quickly and accurately identify the information on the label. Therefore, clarity is the primary requirement for label printing.
3.2 Durability #
The quality of printing needs to withstand the test of time and environment, and should not fade or blur due to sun exposure, rain, friction, etc.
3.3 Speed #
The express logistics industry has a very high demand for speed, therefore, the process of label printing, affixing, and scanning and reading needs to be as fast as possible.
4. Material Selection #
4.1 Plastic #
Plastic is the most common material for self-adhesive labels, such as polyethylene, polypropylene, polyester, etc. Plastic labels have good wear resistance, weather resistance, and can ensure the durability of printing.
4.2 Paper #
In some application scenarios, such as scenarios with low demands or those that can be completed within a short period, paper labels are an economical and environmentally friendly choice.
5. Current Status and Future Trends #
5.1 Current Status #
At present, self-adhesive labels are widely used in the express logistics industry. At the same time, there are more and more self-adhesive labels specially designed and produced for the specific needs of the express logistics industry.
5.2 Future Trends #
With the rapid development of the logistics industry and the advancement of technology, self-adhesive labels will also face new challenges and opportunities. New label technologies, such as Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags, will bring more intelligent and efficient solutions. In addition, environmental protection and sustainability will also be an important development trend for self-adhesive labels in the future.
