Dimensioning Systems

Dimensioning systems quickly captures images of packages, flats, poly bags, tubes, and irregularly shaped items to calculate their dimensions for shipment. They provide carriers with the dimensions and weight of pallets and packages in less than a second, allowing users to identify the correct freight class and reducing the risk of additional fees from carriers.

Dimensioning Systems FAQs

A dimensioning system is a technology that uses sensors and software to capture accurate measurements of objects, packages, or pallets. This data is used to determine the weight, dimensions, and volume of the items being measured, so the customer does not have to find the dimensional weight (DIM weight) manually.

A dimensioning system uses sensors such as lasers or cameras to capture measurements of an object in three dimensions. The data is then processed by software that calculates the weight dimensions, and volume of the object.

The benefits of using a dimensioning system include increased efficiency, reduced labor costs, improved accuracy, and better inventory management.

There are several types of dimensioning systems, including static, dynamic, and portable systems. Static systems are fixed in place and measure objects as they pass through a designated area. Dynamic systems are mounted on conveyors and measure objects as they move along the conveyor. Portable systems are handheld or mounted on a cart and can be moved to different locations.

The key features of a good dimensioning system include accuracy, speed, ease of use, integration with other systems, flexibility, and compatibility with various object sizes and shapes.

Dimensioning systems can be highly accurate, with some systems capable of measuring to within a few millimeters or ounces.

Dimensioning systems help with inventory management by providing accurate and real time data on the dimensions, weight, and volume of items in inventory. This data can be used to optimize warehouse space, reduce transportation costs, and improve order fulfillment.

Yes, dimensioning systems can be integrated with other software systems such as warehouse management systems, transportation management systems, and enterprise resource planning systems.

The costs associated with implementing a dimensioning system vary depending on the type of system, the size of the operation, and the level of integration required. Costs may include hardware, software, installation, and training.
