Dagens' drivers handle hundreds of parcels from different producers and hubs. All parcels are cross-docked and loaded onto different trucks for delivery to the right customer. This process is highly dependent on the information and code on Dagens' parcel labels. If a parcel label goes missing, it's hard to deliver the parcel correctly.
Please help us deliver your orders to the right customer on time, in full and still fresh.
Seamless direct trade is all about effective routines and standardised processes. We recommend using a label printer and sticky Dagens parcel labels for the most efficient and robust packing and labelling process.
Adopt these steps to your packing and labelling process if you want to do it correctly — with minimum effort.
First of all — pack and stack the orders one by one. Use your phone to adjust the quantity and identify batches if needed.
Navigate to the parcel label page. Go through one order at a time and enter the exact number of parcels (boxes or pallets) for each temperature zone. Remember to save!
Print the parcel labels. While you're on it, we recommend printing the delivery notes too.
Stick the label onto the parcel. Make sure that the code is scannable. Avoid covering handles.
Important: Cut and tape labels with transparent tape if you do not use sticky labels.
Great work! The orders are now ready for the hub.
Leave the scissors and tape behind. Embrace efficiency by printing sticky Dagens parcel labels with a label printer. Select the sticky label printer when downloading parcel labels.
We have experience and tested the following label printers:
Please follow these guidelines to secure your produce during transport and comply to laws and regulations for food transport.
All packaged orders must be stackable to utilise space.
Unwashed vegetables must have cloth/plastic covering underneath.
Both seafood/fish and meat produce should be packed and sealed inside the parcel to avoid cross-contamination.
