Printed label or handwritten address

Whether you address your parcel using a printed label or even if a handwritten address is inscribed on the parcel, it is important that the address is positioned centrally on the parcel, has no tape covering any part of the label and that it can be easily read and understood.

Air waybill

Ensure that your shipping label which is also known as an air waybill, is securely attached to the flat topside of your parcel. The barcode and shipping address should be clearly visible and not obscured in any way.

In case the address label becomes damaged or falls off, insert the delivery details on an additional label inside the box.

Other forms of labelling – label the contents

It is vital to correctly label the contents as well as the estimated value of the packaged items.  This information is critical in the event of a damaged or lost parcel claim.  Further information may also be required in the event of sending a parcel overseas that will pass through Customs.

It is also important not to rely on additional labelling, which includes such labels as ‘fragile’, ‘this way up’ or ‘heavy’.  People are able to read such labels but machines are not.

Hazard or UN labels are a hazard

It is critical never to use boxes that contain ‘hazard’ or ‘UN’ labels.  Such parcels will be stopped by the courier and may even incur a fine.
