Rather, everyone at BOXLAB Services will find their very own, yet individual and standardized combination:
Pre-labeled hazardous goods cardboard boxes or drums. Including individual sealing labels if required. In addition, you can benefit from our system solutions, starting with the joint sale of label and print ribbon and extending to a fully integrated, seawater-certified label printer package.
Hazardous goods transports are subject to strict regulations, including the fact that hazardous goods or substances must be transported in undamaged packaging. This in turn means that if a package is damaged, for example in an intermediate storage facility, the product contained in it often ends up in hazardous waste, since there is of course no adequate replacement available.
It is even worse when track & trace methodologies are integrated into the shipping and packaging process, because then the number of units on a pallet is also included in the digitized information and cannot be changed. Thus, in such a case, the entire pallet would be left standing. BOXLAB Services solves these problems – in 24 hours!
A development that was all too obvious. The original service idea of BOXLAB Services solves an enormous logistical problem with avoidable negative ecological effects, but it is also only a small part of a much larger area within a supply chain. That’s why, shortly after the launch of BOXLAB Services and the labeled hazardous goods cartons, the introduction of
of our individually printable hazardous goods labels – placards and hazard labels. As is typical for BOXLAB, we also focus on service and try to optimize as many aspects as possible in the areas of sustainability and efficiency for our customers. That’s why we deliver, unusually for the industry, from as little as 1 piece and throughout Europe within 24 hours.
The logical consequence of service and high-quality labels? For BOXLAB Services, quite clearly: the proper preparation and labeling of those very labels. That’s why we offer our customers not just labels, but a system solution for the entire labeling process. Three tools are the key to a perfectly applied placard. A hazard-free plastic scraper for easy removal of old placards – even with gloves! Our BIO cleaner for easy cleaning of the surface.
No hazardous material – No problem for people and the environment. And perhaps the most underestimated tool we have in the program: The BOXLAB squeegee for easy application of fresh placards with the necessary contact pressure – completely without bubbles and without protruding edges or corners. This way, the placard is guaranteed to keep its promise – namely its ADR-compliant seawater resistance according to BS 5609 Section III.
Since its foundation, BOXLAB Services has been constantly developing. For us, this includes not only healthy growth and the acquisition of new customers, but also the constant questioning of our offer and the inclusion or development of new products and services.
Examples of this are our seawater-certified product combinations of printers, thermal transfer ribbons and labels, or innovations in the field of labels such as the customizable BOXLAB security labels.
