Shipping costs are a large piece of any retail distribution, ecommerce fulfillment, and parcel processing facility. To optimize shipping costs, facilities must have the capability to audit the charges they receive for shipping and understand if they line up with expectations based on item sizes. Many companies today still have manual operations around packing and shipping. As more products begin to “ship in own container” traditional measuring equipment struggles to provide accurate dimensions on the variety of products. If shipments are not optimally prepared, organizations spend extra money on packaging and additional truckloads.

Using 2D image data, the 3D-A1000 helps recover revenue by providing proof of shipment for traceability against damaged or missing claims. Easy to setup and use, the 3D-A1000 estimates and lowers shipping costs by determining the right size shipping container based on volume.
