In a transportation or logistics business, ‘print from the hip’ capabilities can be deployed anywhere across your operations and even to enhance the productivity of field workers in the most remote or challenging environments. A broad portfolio of accessories for Zebra mobile printers are available, ranging from cases, straps, and belt clips, to forklift truck mounts, docking cradles and vehicle power adapters.
Multiple Applications and Use Cases
At the point of delivery of a parcel, the post or parcel courier can quickly offer mobile print capabilities. Using the mobile printer as a companion to either a scanner, or a mobile computer, enables the courier to quickly scan the label on the item, process the action and print an instant proof of delivery receipt – or an e-receipt if the customer prefers. In the event of a failure to deliver, the courier can print detailed information regarding missed delivery and whether the customer’s parcel has been left with a neighbour, returned to the depot, dropped at a parcel shop, or left in a secure location.
Mobile printers can also be used to optimise efficiencies in ticketing, tagging and labelling applications for all sorts of passenger transportation requirements. On trains and buses, a mobile printer saves significant time and effort for both operator and customer when it comes to issuing travel tickets. Car rental companies can use mobile printers to provide return receipts. And on drive-on ferries, adhesive boarding labels that comply with EU regulations to enable strict counts of vehicles can quickly be issued to stick to windscreens.
Fast and Efficient, with Full-Shift Capabilities
Wherever they’re introduced to help make your operations more dynamic, your mobile printers will need to be robust and reliable, delivering maximum flexibility and durability for a wide range of use cases. And you’ll want long-lasting battery performance for full-shift capabilities, with the ability to remotely monitor battery status across your entire print fleet.
Zebra’s cost-effective ZQ300 Series of mobile printers is ideal for transportation and logistics providers.
> More versatility, more value: With the ZQ300 Series, you can print receipts, labels or both. And we offer the most charging options for maximum flexibility to meet the scalability of your business needs – including large or small deployment, in-vehicle and at-home charging solutions.
> Optimal compatibility: The ZQ300 supports both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. So, switching from using it as a cloud-networked device inside a facility to using the same printer paired to a ‘mobile computer’ (either a Zebra enterprise device or tablet, or a user’s own iOS® or Android™ device) for off-site operation is easy, further enhancing workforce mobility.
> Durability by design: You get the best of both worlds with the ZQ300 Series – a lightweight printer, featuring superior industrial design to ensure user comfort all shift long. Choose between a sleek consumer-facing housing that fits into the most design conscious of business environments or a scuff-resistant, durable housing design that can handle all outdoor elements.
> Easy remote management: Optimise uptime by updating, monitoring and troubleshooting your mobile printers in real-time from a remote central location with Zebra’s one-of-a-kind Bluetooth remote management.
