CMSNL offers OEM spares for Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki, Kawasaki and Ducati with shipments going worldwide.
CMS has automated their own WMS, all their shipping orders require info about package dimensions, this must be entered into the system. CMSNL own boxes have a special barcode with info of the sizes of the box. So for regular shipments the dimensions are scanned into the system with one barcode scan. For reuse, incised or assembled standard boxes “Ugly Freight”, they use the Cubetape for easy and faultless entry of height, length and width.
Also the weight is measured and recorded at the same time. All this data is needed for a proper use of their Multi-Carrier software package
Previously they used a standard hand held tape measure for this and the values were manually entered. They found that errors could be made, especially in high pressure shipping time, and this required post-calculations or incorrectly high shipping costs. They purchased Cubetapes to avoid this. It is an easy-to-use device that works with Bluetooth and that you can connect “plug and play” to the sending computer, like a barcode scanner. Entering dimensions manually is no longer permitted within their ready-to-prepare process.
The result is no longer typing errors, as a result of which the aforementioned costs belonged to the past. CSMNL do an average of 90 to 120 packages per day using Cubetapes. For this number of packages, Cubetape is a good, cost effective solution that takes up less space than a volume scanner and can be used immediately in an existing WMS.
