Cleaning for the Logistics Industry

The Logistics Industry which encompasses label manufacturers, printer manufacturers and logistics or sticky media users utilizes a wide array of devices. Our Logistics Industry collection gives you the technical cleaning products designed for thermal printers, sensitive screens, bar code scanners and other devices to ensure operational efficiency and reduce downtime and maintenance costs. This helps keep your customers loyal and happy!

Best Practices

Cleaning specialized label devices on a regularly scheduled maintenance routine aids in operational efficiency, reduced service calls and longevity of the equipment. Based on the manufacturers recommendations and customer feedback, we encourage the following best practices for optimal results:

Thermal Printers

Clean with every media roll changes or at least twice per week.

Clean more frequently after periods of high use.


Printers become dirty from “paper dust” and adhesives as well as environmental contaminants such as airborne grease particles. Cards, wipes, pens and swabs clean the printhead and any build-up on the printer's rollers.

Dirty Device Symptoms:

  • Paper jams
  • Poor print quality or print voids
  • Illegible receipts

Screens, Tablets and Barcode Scanners

Clean when screen or scanner is noticeably dirty or at least once per week. Clean more frequently after periods of high usage.


Screens, especially touch or sensitive screens, and barcode scanners should be checked daily for fingerprint and grime build up. Dirty screens can cause slow or inaccurate transactions and can also cause customer perception to be that of a poorly run branch or facility.

Dirty Device Symptoms:

  • Visible dirt and smears
  • Failure to read
  • Dust build up

Electronics Interiors

Clean every 3-4 media roll changes or at least twice per month.

Clean in conjunction with cleaning cards


Due to their required proximity to numerous types of foreign matter, devices pick up dirt which cause misreads, inaccuracy and operational failure if not cleaned properly.

Dirty Device Symptoms:

  • Paper jams
  • Poor print quality or print voids
  • Misreads and errors
