What do you think you’ll take away from this episode?
An automated parcel dimensioning systems play an integral role within your WMS, and to ensure that, you need to practice the top six ways to save your inventory from drowning.
Let us see each one real fast.
Number 1: Throw the tape and ruler.
Conventional dimensioning these days is a mundane and time-consuming process.
As there is a massive surge in internet-based sales, you need to race to complete your last-mile delivery.
Number 2: plan your storage capacity.
Storage space is better optimised when each product’s dimensions considered seriously.
The use of old-fashioned tape measure is invariably time-consuming and meticulous.
Alternatively, to make the greatest use of available space, you can use automated parcel dimensioning systems in daily operations.
Number 3: Pick frequency.
Pick frequency aids in determining placing items in a suitable place so that the most popular or common items requested by your customer are in a consolidated location at the time of selection, reducing the pick time.
Number 4: building effective pallets.
Pallets are frequently required during the packing process.
Heavier materials should be placed at the bottom of the stack, and to accomplish this, you need to deploy a suitable automated parcel dimensioning system in your warehouse.
Number 5: efficiencies in load planning and slotting:
The information gathered can be used for slotting, load planning, and lowering shipping costs.
A warehouse facility must manage and organise data about product shapes, sizes, and arrangements to be competitive and adept.
Number 6: shipping processes:
Finally, data on commodity measures can be outlined to match buyers demands during the shipping process.
And this is another incentive to ditch the tape measure and invest in a dimensioning system as part of your overall Warehouse Management System.
