Volume and weight measurement systems for use in logistic processes

Measurement tools

Volume and weight measurement system of ParcelMetrics are used to determine the weight and dimensions of packages and pallet loads used in logistic processes. A robust measurement tape will be used to get the length width and height of a parcel or pallet and this data including barcode ID info will be send to the Android unit which can add the weight using Bluetooth connection to a scale and pictures can also be added using the back panel camera of the smartphone / PDA.

Using ParcelMetrics tools
