ParcelMgr lowers the cost of parcel fulfillment and delivery by automating the tasks of reading, weighing, labeling, and sorting parcels or flats. At speeds of up to 5,000 parcels per hour, this sorting automation solution can pay for itself in a very short time by displacing the need for extra manual labor.

Bell and Howell’s Parcel Manager is a turn-key solution for businesses interested in cost effective shipping through the USPS for heavy flats, polybags and small parcels.  

This ParcelMgr system comprises key components to scan, capture and process an image of the product using OCR (Optical Character Recognition), determine the right delivery point Zipcode, dimension, weigh, print and apply the correct USPS label, and sort, all in a single pass through the system. This saves significant labor and optimizes postage costs. 

The solution includes the industry’s fastest print-and-apply labeler to print variable-length labels per USPS specifications, with no liner waste, and therefore the most number of labels per roll. Learn more.

This is an ideal solution for efficient small parcel and flats sorting, with the potential to significantly reduce shipping costs.
