Years ago when we thought about shipping pallets via UPS Freight, FedEx Freight, Saia, USF Holland, etc... we just placed a pallet on top of the floor scale, wrote down the pallet weight, and we then sent our cargo off with the freight carrier. Then we simplified the process by connecting the electronic scale to our desktop computer so the actual package weight displayed inside the shipping software. Well, now we have to update our process again since more LTL freight carriers are starting look at both pallet weight and dimensions when it comes to calculating the cost to ship a pallet.
These systems are not inexpensive but when you consider the additional costs of having employees measure by hand each and every pallet, then record the information (hopefully writing down the numbers correctly) the return on investment (ROI) for an iDimension LTL system, available from Central Carolina Scale, can be achieved fairly quickly. And don't forget the freight carriers have started billing customers for pallets that had a DIM weight that was higher than the actual weight.
iDimension LTL Brochure (pdf file)
The iDimension LTL uses advanced sensing technology to accurately determine the cubic dimensions of freight, helping ensure freight code compliance is being recorded and declared.
Ideal for LTL carriers and companies with a high percentage of product shipped via pallet or crate, the iDimension LTL removes the potential for human error when taking measurements. The extra labor of manually determining dimensions is eliminated by accurately capturing freight dimensions in less than two seconds.
An LED light kit reflects a light grid on the floor, eliminating the need to paint, etch or tape the dimensioning zone, and quickly assists forklift drivers.
Up to two high-resolution cameras perform freight identification, damage assessment and tracking.
The operator display provides instantaneous feedback to the forklift or pallet jack operator, communicating dimensions and system status.
The iDimension LTL harnesses the fastest processing in the industry. Its advanced imaging technology dimensions LTL freight at a rate of 1-2 seconds within 0.5-inch Legal for Trade accuracy.
With no moving parts and a solid-state design, the iDimension LTL can easily integrate into a typical LTL environment. Its rugged computer and industrial electrical components can withstand both the hot and cold extremes of shipping docks. Sensors and cameras are protected from accidental freight impact.
EASE OF INSTALLATION
The iDimension LTL can be installed in one day. Installation technicians will test the interface and train personnel how to use, configure and calibrate the system.
The iDimension LTL is a network device with a web service interface, providing simple integration using configurable capture definitions through HTTP requests, status checking and XML parsing. In other words, Rice Lake has designed this product to easily transfer images and dimensions to your network.
