RFID labels for Mailbox Parcel (3570)

Mailbox Parcel shipments can optionally be ordered with tracking using RFID.

Normally, we create PDF labels that can be printed on any printer. If you opt for tracking, we create ZPL labels instead. ZPL stands for Zebra Programming Language (ZPL).

When ordering the service 3570, the labels will be ZPL code containing instructions for programming the passive RFID antenna in the printer’s labels with package numbers.

In addition to the RFID programming instructions, the ZPL code contains instructions for rendering the rest of the label (addresses, icons, barcode, etc.).

Special hardware required

RFID-tagged labels require special printer hardware. Currently we support the following printers:

  • Zebra R410
  • Zebra 500R
