Shipping labels are rather crucial in the shipping process. Without them, the courier driver will not be able to deliver the parcel to its destination. But why is the name on the label of the recipient such an essential factor in the shipping process?

When shipping, the courier, or a parcel broker, will ask you to enter details your details like sender, as well as, the consignee’s detailed information. Therefore, the delivery name will be the consignee’s name, or, the recipient’s name. Apart from the name of the recipient on the shipping label, information such as country, postal code, address, tracking number, package quantity and weight, etc., can be found.
Deciding to have a parcel delivered to a company is not uncommon; this can be an advantage if the receiver of the package is rarely at his address. Whether the company is the consignee itself, or one decides to receive the package at his workplace, it is crucial to know how to fill out the label.
In the field “Consignee/Receiver” the name of the company should appear first: this will let the courier know he’s looking for an office or a public building rather than a private house. Right next to it, there should be the name and surname of the intended receiver of the shipment.
You don’t want the person at the reception desk to refuse the package because it is not among the ones the company was expecting. Having the name of the employee on it will certainly give a more unobstructed view of the situation. However, to avoid any misunderstanding, it’s better to inform the reception (or someone in charge of receiving packages in the company) of the expected delivery in advance.
Keep in mind that it is necessary to verify whether the company policy allows private deliveries at its address. Some companies will not accept deliveries which are not business-related, so be sure to get more information before picking it as a delivery address.
