Previously, documents were printed in the print room, sorted, then taken to individual packing stations. Today, shipping documents are printed as an integral part of the packing solution.

Eliminate the cost of manually inserting pre-printed shipping documents into customer orders. With Caljan Print & Merge system, relevant documents are printed when the customer purchase is on its way to be packed. No pile-up of mixed paperwork and no risk of inadvertently picking the wrong documents.
The system automatically verifies that the individually printed shipping documents match the shipment – which prevents costly mistakes & disappointed customers.
In addition to merging shipping documents, return document, and even labels can be packaged with the item(s) ordered.
Via a trusted partner, we are able to wrap the items before labelling - all as part of the Print & Apply solution. Environment-friendly, plastic sheeting is placed under and over the shipment. The wrapping is sealed and excess cut off. No wasted space means reduced shipping costs.
When customers get their order, they are more likely to be open to other attractive offers.
Promotional flyers or brochures can be merged from below and packed with the shipment — all as part of the automatic document handling process.
A variety of pre-printed flyers are stored in stations adjacent to the main conveyor. The appropriate flyer is matched with a specific shipment. Each customer gets a flyer that teams up well with the original purchase.
