Mobile DASCOM label printer impresses thanks to the spare parts supply service

Bleker Autoteile upgrades to the Tally Dascom DP-530L

The Customer

Bleker Autoteile GmbH belongs to Bleker Group Borken and is one of the most reliable and efficient original parts suppliers in Germany. Bleker Autoteile is one of the leading suppliers of original spare parts for Citroen, DS Automobiles, Peugeot, Opel, Chevrolet, Renault, Dacia, Nissan, Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Lancia, Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep. Bleker supplies both authorised dealers, as well as independent workshops and keeps around 40,000 parts in stock at any given time.

Optimal Package Marking

Bleker Autoteile offers a new package marking system which enables their customers to track the relevant order from the outside – without having to open the packaging. This allows orders to be sorted quickly and clearly and stored accordingly. The allocation information is created via label printers that are connected to the Bleker Group’s SAP system through WLAN. The customer individually determines which allocation information is required on the label. The compact mobile Tally Dascom DP-530L printer with WLAN have consequently deployed within Bieker’s small parts warehouse and have proved to be a resounding success.

Delivery with Complete Documentation

Bleker Autoteile serves Courier customers and so-called ‘Tour’ customers. Tour customers receive the goods from the warehouse and, before being loaded into the vehicle, their goods are marked with an ‘HU’ (handling unit) sticker. The driver scans all the packages he is taking for the tour to enable the possession of all relevant information on his or her  mobile device which means they can immediately see on arrival at the customer’s premises which goods they’re to deliver. The driver then scans the HU again where upon they hand package over to the customer. This ensures complete documentation of the delivery process and prevents any ambiguity or confusion around delivery.

Picking and Repackaging

The DP-530L mobile printer also proves its worth in order-picking operations in Bieker Autoeile warehouses, too. Many original spare parts are supplied by the manufacturers in boxes and bags containing several items of the same article. If only a part of the contents of such a package is needed during order picking, the parts are taken out by staff and repackaged. New labels are needed on site to label the new packaging. This, of course, is also a cause for further use for the robust DP-530L printer which, due to its low weight, can be easily transported and set up at any location. The printer enables efficient working, especially in the logistics sector. Thanks to various interfaces (Bluetooth or WiFi), the printer can be easily connected to a selection of wireless technologies.  

Error-Free Shipping – and Efficiency

Bleker Autoteile picking and shipping processes have now become even more efficient and trouble free. The use of mobile DASCOM printers has not only made re-packaging easier, but has also enabled goods deliveries to be transferred to a closed system and overall, has saved Bleker-Autoteile both time and money.

“Its operation is very simple. The label rolls are changed in no time and the long battery life allows for extensive label printing. Thanks to our new labelling system, mix-ups are impossible. All in all, this of course means significant savings for us”
