UPS and HP have been working on a combination scanner/printer that prints sorting labels directly on to packages. This innovation may seem small, but it promises big results. The existing system uses a large thermal printer, PC, monitor and scanner. Combining and scaling down all these functions into a tiny hand held device ends up saving huge amounts of time and resources. UPS estimates they will save approximately 92,456 hours year through increased productivity, 1,338 tons of paper, and reduce carbon emissions by 3,807 tons each year.
