Tip of the Week - #088 (Helpful Hints for Shipping Labels)

Keywords: labels, Priority Dispatch, statistics

  1. Print out shipping labels ahead of time. Place a set of originals in a folder (such as a 3 ring binder with sheets with pockets in them). Arrange the labels numerically. This makes for a fast retrievable if you need new ones copied.

  2. Create a good supply of labels before a busy time of the term. You can do this based on your Priority Dispatch stats from the previous year.
