DB Schenker and Star Micronics
Packing a Punch
In collaboration with Exchange Finance and West International, DB Schenker Privpak AB offers a self-service kiosk that provides users with an efficient and easy means of sending packages. Designed by West International, the kiosk allows users to book online at their local convenience store and simply print out the address ticket. The package is then scanned and received. Customers also have the opportunity to make use of the kiosk’s range of other financial services including paying bills and topping up mobile phone credit. The kiosk is scheduled to be installed in up to 1,600 stores across Sweden.
Integral to the kiosk is the TSP800 multi-functional printer from international printer manufacturer Star Micronics. Small and compact, this thermal printer offers a versatile 150mm/second barcode, label, receipt and ticket printer with a unique 104mm print width on paper stock up to 150g/ m2. Key features of this printer include an automatic scalable raster driver for immediate A4 reduction to virtual A6 on 112mm wide paper with no additional software required.
As Sten Karlsson, Managing Director, West International, states “This kiosk provides users with an efficient and versatile solution for sending packages and paying bills. We selected the TSP800 from Star Micronics for its reliability and versatility as well as its ability to be successfully and easily integrated into a kiosk.”
