Cross docking – incoming freight
Volume and Weight measurement checking incoming goods
Volume and weight measurement system of ParcelMetrics are used to determine the weight and dimensions of packages and pallet loads at cross docking applications and regular incoming goods.
A robust measurement tape will be used to determine the Length Width and Height of a parcel or pallet and this data including barcode ID info will be send to a handheld Android unit which can add the weight using a Bluetooth connection to the scale. Pictures can also be added using the back panel camera of the smartphone / PDA. All data is sent in real-time using a safe HTTPS data transfer to a (local) PC/Laptop or (cloud) server installation.
Modern freight recording includes the optimization of storage and shipping. Rising costs for transport fuel and wages make information off the weight and dimensions of packages increasingly important.
The determined data (volume – weight – parcel ID) can be checked if the shippers information was correct and back-charging is needed.
