When an industry leader in wholesale commercial and residential plumbing calls for help dimensioning outbound shipments, we knew we had to provide the most innovative and cost effective solution for capturing weights and measurements. With $18.4 billion in sales, 1,400 locations, 10 distribution centers through-out the US, serving customers in all 50 states, the Caribbean, Puerto Rico, and Mexico, the volume of small package shipments was increasing exponentially. Diversification of their product portfolio was also adding increasingly challenging shapes, weights, and sizes to their offering. Together we chose the SPS 3D XL dimensioning system, with a 10’ gravity roller conveyor, and drop-in scale. This semi-automatic dimensioning system increased parcel throughput helping to reduce bottle necks in their current process. The SPS 3D allows them to dimension irregular shapes along with standard packaging by using sensor and camera based technology. When trying to speed up material handling piece rates, any automated data collection can aid the process. Consolidating packing stations into one shipping line that fed the semi-auto SPS 3D XL dimensioning systems, allows unique ID’s (LPN) to be scanned while the product spends under 2 seconds on the dimensioning system and scale. Shipping labels are then generated based on the shipment address and carrier of record for the unique order ID. If you have a unique project requiring data collection for dimensions and weights, turn to the experts at Walz Label and Mailing System. From small product measurements to all varieties of large freight, we have a solution that can help.
