Mistakes to Avoid and Reasons to Reach Out to SAITO Labels in NZ


As a label expert in logistics and warehouse management, I’ve seen firsthand how crucial proper labelling is to the efficiency and organization of warehouse operations. Over the years, I’ve encountered various challenges and learned valuable lessons that can benefit anyone looking to optimize their warehouse labelling systems. Here, I’ll share some common mistakes to avoid and why reaching out to SAITO Labels in New Zealand can make a significant difference. There is a reason over 90% of our business is referrals.

Common Mistakes in Warehouse Labelling
  1. Using Low-Quality Labels
    • Issue: Low-quality labels may fade, peel off, or become unreadable over time.
    • Invest in durable, fit for purpose high-quality labels designed to withstand the warehouse environment. Durable barcoded labels, for instance, ensure longevity and readability, reducing the need for frequent replacements.
  3. Poor Label Placement
    • Issue: Incorrect placement of labels can lead to scanning errors and inefficiencies in locating items.
    • Solution: Place labels at eye level and ensure they are easily accessible. Consider using multi-level rack labels that can be scanned from the floor level for high shelves.
  5. Inconsistent Labelling Systems
    • Issue: Inconsistent labelling can confuse warehouse staff and lead to inventory inaccuracies.
    • Solution: Standardize your labelling system across the entire warehouse. Consistency in label formats, fonts, and placements ensures that everyone can easily understand and use the labels effectively.
  7. Ignoring Environmental Factors
    • Issue: Labels not suited for specific environments (e.g., cold storage) can fail prematurely.
    • Solution: Choose labels that are specifically designed for the conditions of your warehouse. For instance, cold storage labels are built to perform in sub-zero temperatures.
