What is a shipping label?

A shipping label, or transport label, is a note with an address that you stick in clear view on various packages. Some of these parcels stay in Sweden, other are sent abroad to other parts of the world. This is what makes our job so interesting, because we constantly need to strive for improvement and development.

A major part of this development is PostNord Portal Business – a portal where our business clients can find all the information they need to send, document, inform and print labels. This leads us to the question about how and why shipping labels are needed.

How are shipping labels used?

Most companies want simple and efficient solutions regarding shipping, transportations and mass send-outs of marketing material. Largely, it’s about maximum effect at minimal cost. That said, we want to talk about send-outs specifically, or rather the format of send-outs. We want to push for the service Skapa Utskick – a service developed specifically to maximise the effect of mass marketing send-outs.

All you need to consider is the target audience, content and format: post card, letter or flyer. If you also choose to adapt the printing of your shipping labels, you’re almost home!

PS. We almost forgot the best part: You can print as many shipping labels as you want – for free! DS.
