The Timber Pack Label contains the quantity of timber pieces together with their measurement in terms of length and thickness along with their grade details. Some mills place a label on each side of the pack whereas some mills will only place it on the ends. The timber pack label will also contain a barcode label that can be used in inventory control, stock take or loadout applications.
After the timber is dropped from the bin, palletised and strapped it then is usually covered with a slip sheet. The slip sheet contains mill branding. As the timber can no longer be seen a timber pack label is produced and applied to the slip sheet.
As timber packs sit in yards for unknown periods they require a long-life label typically printed via thermal transfer ribbon. With sustainability a key topic in the media these days mills are turning to labels that can be potentially recycled with the slip sheets.
