What is a Shipping Label?

Shipping labels are a type of identification label that helps display the key information for a carrier to transport a package from their start destination (your warehouse) to its end destination (your customer's hands). Each label is unique and you cannot reuse old labels. Shipping labels differ depending on the carrier you use, but they all consist of information like addresses, names, weight, and a tracking barcode.

As seen above, shipping labels generally include the following information

  • Origin address
  • Destination address
  • Shipping class

  • Tracking number
  • Shipping barcode

A shipping label displays the information to direct packages to the correct destinations, track them throughout each stage, and ensure the correct service is provided.
