Electronic devices are integral to our daily lives: we use them to get our work done, we like how they help us connect with others through video, e-mailing and texting; we track our fitness activities and goals, and we rely on them to deliver our movies, music, news, photos, reports and, yes, even cat videos.

Printing Goes on the Road

As a kid, my dad always traveled. It seemed as though his life happened either on a plane or in his car. My sister and I would kiss him goodbye, watch him drive away to his next jet-setting adventure and chat about what gifts he would bring back from wherever he was going. The other thing I remember about my “road warrior” father is that he was always fumbling around with stacks of papers and presentations. If only the HP ePrint app and Public Print Location service, now offered at participating The UPS Store locations, had been available at the time…

This easy-to-use, full-service printing solution is perfect for those road warriors, like my dad, who travel and need a place that can provide print services wherever they go.

UPS employees use the HP Handheld All-in-One to scan shipping labels on packages as they arrive at a package center, and print Preload Assist Labels (PALs) directly on the box. PALs simplify the job of employees loading outgoing package cars – telling them not only which truck the package should be loaded on, but also the shelf position within the truck. The HP Handheld replaces a process that relied on trolleys loaded with thermal printers, PCs, monitors and keyboards.
