2 Second Lean: Shipping Labels
UPS offers free pouches for labels printed on standard paper. We would print out the label on a standard 8.5"x11" sheet and slip in the plastic pouch. We got the pouch for free but we still had to pay for paper and toner. Not only that, but it was a real hassle to put labels on boxes and slip them in the pouches. We purchased a label printer and now create less waste and have eliminated paper/toner costs. We have also gained 7 seconds PER LABEL in time savings. It doesn't sound like much but for every thousand boxes you save 2 HOURS.
