In With the New: How Volunteering Courier Libraries Are Helping Increase Efficiency One Label At a Time
Just like that barcode on the box at your front door, the barcode on your TAE bag contains crucial information for storing and communicating tracking information. Wear and tear over the years have degraded the barcodes on bags and that began to have a negative impact on TAE operations.
To solve the problem of missed tracking information and incomplete scans from the older cracked and wrinkled codes on bags, Amigos ordered bright new barcodes. Have you seen those new orange striped tags on the bags? To help replace the old barcodes quickly, Amigos reached out to some of the high-volume libraries. They’ve been working since July and have made tremendous progress – we’re now able to send out the new pattern barcodes when members ask. As the new barcodes replace the old, a decrease in scanning errors is expected, which is an improvement that will help all courier libraries.
TAE would like to thank the below courier libraries for their invaluable help in replacing the barcodes on our courier bags!
