Toshiba's Paper Reusing System Saves Paper Wastage in Logistics
TOKYO --(Business Wire)--
TEC, a global leader in printing, imaging solutions and services, is
proud to announce to the Logistics industry, the e-STUDIO306LP/RD30. It
is the world's first multifunction printer (MFP) to incorporate a unique
erasable toner enabling the output to be erased and re-used multiple
The e-STUDIO306LP/RD30 is a revolutionary MFP system like no other on
the market. By using regular office paper, the e-STUDIO306LP can print
documents with an erasable blue toner that is easily identifiable in any
work environment. One sheet of paper can be reused multiple times once
fed or passed through the e-STUDIO RD30 eraser unit. At the same time it
can be scanned and archived electronically to a designated file location.
Since its launch, the e-STUDIO306LP/RD30 has been installed in several
organisations all endeavouring to reduce the amount of paper used on
site as well as reduce their carbon footprint. We believe, the logistics
industry can benefit greatly by utilising this innovative system.
In a warehouse environment, the life span of documents such as order
sheets, picking slips and inventory reports are short lived and often
printed in excessive volumes. However, the need to reduce these paper
levels is highly desirable within many businesses. Toshiba's (News - Alert) paper
reusing system reduces paper, cost and carbon emissions by reusing the
same paper several times. It also improves warehouse efficiency by
scanning and sorting the paper automatically.
Logistics is the second largest logistics and warehousing solution
provider in Mexico stretching across 22 offices in Mexico. The company
is conscious about social responsibility and often takes initiative in
promoting environmental conservation activities. The company introduced
the Toshiba e-STUDIO306LP/RD30 to their business environments having
discovering the benefits of adopting Toshiba's revolutionary paper
Onest Logistics focused on the total amount of paper used in their
company. They print 500,000 pages a month, most of which are thrown away
only a few days after being printed. To reduce paper consumption, the
e-STUDIO306LP/RD30 has been instlled in their Head Office and
warehouses. Employees are currently printing order-confirmation reports,
picking orders, inventory validation reports and order dispatch sheets
with Toshiba's e-STUDIO306LP. Noticeably they have found that
productivity is maintained whilst also achieving their corporate
Pilot Pen Australia
Pen Australia has installed the Toshiba e-STUDIO306LP/RD30 in its
national warehouse. They understand the challenges of day to day paper
usage and the critical part paper plays within a business environment.
On average, 500 picking slips are printed per day in the warehouse.
Today, Pilot Pen is printing picking slips with an e-STUDIO306LP and the
warehouse staff ticks off items with a Pilot Frixion erasable-ink pen.
After checking the picking list, the paper is then fed through the
e-STUDIORD30 erasing unit where the erasing process begins. That same
paper can then be reused through the e-STUDIO306LP.
By using Toshiba's e-STUDIO306LP/RD30, Pilot Pen Australia has reduced
their paper consumption by more than 90% and have adapted to this system
at their warehouse.
Given Pilot Pen Australia were satisfied with the performance of
the e-STUDIO306LP/RD30, they purchased a second e-STUDIO 306LP/RD30
which is being utilised by the rest of their head office, including
accounts payable, finance and marketing. Internal documents within the
business have been streamlined to be printed, archived and erased. Usage
of this system at their office has also resulted in less filing cabinets
occupying precious office space.
Cases of Onest Logistics and Pilot Pen Australia prove that there are
many opportunities to decrease temporary paper use in
warehouses/distribution centres for logistics and in various other
industries such as manufacturing and retail. The system improves work
efficiency, and makes more economical use of paper. This is a whole new
way to be more environmentally friendly, more efficient and more create
economical work processes.
