Ugly freight and non-conveyables
In the parcel world you can have non-conveyables and in the pallet load transport world you can have oversized (ugly) freight.
In many cases ugly freight cannot be measured by full automated equipment and needs to be handled separately by a dedicated operator with dedicated hardware & software tools.
Non-conveyables / oversized goods can result in disputes as shippers cannot measure them accurately. The result – lost revenue.
It is therefore imperative that the carrier measures the freight accurately when picking it up from the shipper’s site or at least at the moment the goods arrive on the Cross docking depot.
You will need invest in an efficient ParcelMetrics solution based on hard and software which will cost considerable less then huge stationary portal systems, have an enormous flexibility and don’t absorb precious floor space.
The hardware consists of an easy-to-use robust and professional digital tape measurement that helps you measure large objects in seconds. With built-in Bluetooth capability, it links to your phone or industrial PDA which runs our software ParcelMetrics Mobile.
