So Automation and improvement in Pick and pack efficiency is the key to delivering orders on time.

But after almost two years of working with customers procuring automated parcel dimensioning systems I have seen that esp. in the e-commerce world the reason to procure the systems are as varied as the products being shipped.

Some of the major reasons include Optimization of storage and compliance with DIM pricing. But a significant reason, which was also surprising to me was competitive differentiation.

As one of the first firms globally to provide an Automated parcel dimensioning system with simple to use interfaces and integrations and low pricepoints to e-commerce SMEs, as the first wave adopters they can compete better and grow faster

Also in addition to the above firms have the Need for faster response to exceptional or unexpected events and Optimize available assets (trucks, ships, etc.) whilst managing Customer demand for improved service.

An example, would be the sudden peak peak in demand for baby yoda figures and toys when the mandolorian seasons 1 and 2 were released.

Every client has a different reason to adopt automated dimensioning systems, but what they understand is that it improces pick and pack efficiency when integrated with the inbound and outbound processes.

The other benefits include Optimization of fulfilment and Improved record keeping whilst helping Improve supply chain efficiencies

This are truly some of the ways Automated parcel dimensioning solutions can help you improve your prick and pack efficiency.
