How automated parcel dimensioning systems aids logistics and warehouse firms?
Today, the rate of online purchasing has grown by orders of magnitude, and it is anticipated to expand by manifolds in the coming days. However, when most consumers expect same-day or one-day delivery, they have no idea how logistics and warehouse operators must hasten operations to finish the order-fulfilment process within an estimated timeframe. As a result, the word dimensioning is significant in the warehouse sector, and we cannot satisfy client requests on time if we utilise the old dimensioning approach. Several logistics and storage companies have responded by deploying an automated parcel dimensioning system that can quickly calibrate the dimensional information of various sized pallets and parcels.

Today, dimensioning plays a crucial role in the logistics and warehouse industries.
By deploying the parcel dimensioning system, we can automate the dimensional measurement of the products and packaging to optimise cost, effort, and quality.

Let’s look at the four ways automated parcel dimensioning systems help logistics and warehouse firms.

Number one. Accurate pricing.

Precise dimensional data helps logistics firms decrease shipping expenses and avoid product returns and chargebacks because of incorrect dimensions and freight charges.

Number 2. Easy slotting.

By knowing the exact dimensions, weight, and characteristics of the items in the package, warehouses can ergonomically slot the products to avoid handling issues and damages.

Number 3. Improved cartonization.

The weight and volume of the product determine the type and amount of packaging material needed to ensure safety and lower packing costs.

Also, it prevents wastage of effort and time involved in trying different cartons for the products.

Number 4. Supports capacity planning. Capacity planning plays a crucial role in warehouses with space constraints.

Dimensioning augments capacity plans by reducing fulfilment costs, minimising picking time, and optimising available space.

And the last is enhanced quality control. Dimensioning identifies initial defects in shipments.

It saves time on physical inspection, fastens quality control, and helps avoid product returns and associated costs.

So with the appropriate parcel dimensioning systems, you can effectively accelerate the operational efficacy and potency in your warehouse and logistics centre.
