Customers and business regulations are undergoing continuous change from time to time. At the same time, customers demand more transparent requirements and shipping. When it comes to meeting increasing regulations and customer expectations, companies must provide reams of information which can be achieved by handling instructions to workers who transport the cargo of goods over the air, land, and sea.
Nevertheless, due to the complicated law in shipping and delivering goods – especially international law in shipping, companies often fail to fulfil the demand of customers to be more transparent and on-time. Fortunately, the shipping obstacles can be tackled by adopting enterprise labelling. Enterprise labelling helps maximise support for countless label combinations with minimum cost and effort, resulting in consistency as well as flexibility while scaling your business. Likewise, no matter what kind of product your company is shipping, it is imperative to automate the labelling process.

Start with logic
According to a white paper published in Loftware, with the help of labelling platform, you can create warning statements in multiple languages, based on country and destination. Thus, meeting global and regional labelling can be started with configurable business logic. This logic can ensure variability in labelling which can be done by rules that software can understand. Moreover, the platform can help track and trace product as well as dynamically place images and pictograms on the label.
Given a set of input parameters, a comprehensive labelling solution can generate a shipping label that complies with inter and local shipping as well as contains enough information to help move products safely.
In addition, automating the process of generating a shipping label reduces and can eliminate the chance for human error. This will increase transparency in your shipment through customs, across borders, and into the customer’s warehouse without any meaningful incidents.
Further, enterprises should be aware that labelling does not come easy. There is a certain rule when it comes to labelling a specific area where constant change occurs such as products with different physical or chemical changes. Labelling in this kind of area should comply with the evolving standards of a critical role in customer safety. That said, adhering to regulations that define how products are developed, marketed, shipped, and disposed of is essential to avoid fines, retain customers, stay competitive, enter new markets, and most importantly, remain in business.
You can stay up to date with the change by standardising your global enterprise with a comprehensive enterprise labelling solution to ensure customer responsiveness and regulatory compliance. Doing this also enables you to automate your labelling processes and support the increasingly complex scenarios by using flexible business logic that is designed to manage variability in labelling.
