Logistic departments are usually a high speed busy, material handling environment, and they require equipment and tools to simplify processes and enhance efficiency. With many postal carriers enacting dimensional weight postal pricing, shipping departments need to reevaluate their material packaging and shipping processes to deter fines and compliance issues. From stock inventory and outgoing package weights to LTL material handling and pallet dimensions, our selection of Rice Lake scales offer comprehensive logistic solutions to not only deter fees and compliance issues, but to optimize your shipping and warehouse operations.

To ensure shipping and receiving departments adhere to dimensional weight, also known as dim weight, Rice Lake offers iDimension™ Series dimensioning systems as the compliance solution. Ideal for packages ranging from tabletop flats and polybags to boxes, tubes and LTL multi-piece pallets, the iDimension Series offers dimensioning systems for many logistic environments. iDimension Series dimensioning systems use high-resolution cameras, workplace-safe sensing technology and 3D imaging to convert packages and irregular shapes and objects into accurate, cubed dimensions. Unlike other dimensioning systems on the market, iDimension systems are designed for busy warehouses and shipping departments by requiring virtually no time-consuming special parcel handling or alignment.

For larger material handling and package weights, Rice Lake floor scales are the toughest, most accurate floor scales available. Placed under an iDimension 400 LTL system, shipping departments have access to accurate pallet weights and dimensions for LTL shipping operations. RoughDeck’s rugged and durable design minimizes deck deflection and extraneous forces that could damage load cells. These features, along with RoughDeck’s superior structural design, separate it from other floor scales on the market.

Rice Lake’s CLS cargo lift scale forklift attachment enhances efficiency in any shipping department and loading bay terminal. The CLS allows LTL freight material handlers to weigh pallets during the material handling process, saving time and money. CLS forklift scale attachments mount directly to any Class II or Class III forklift, and are built with the utmost quality in product design. Used in conjunction with an iDimension 400 LTL dimensioning system, the CLS provides logistic operators and managers accurate weight and dimensional data to ship pallets with confidence.

Logistic departments require durable equipment to simplify material handling processes, enhance shipping efficiency and maintain postal compliance. As you can see we can provide you with an array of the highest-quality and most cutting-edge weight-related and measurement tools for the logistics industry.
