Freight Dimensioning Systems

+ Add to Quote Request

Our Freight Volume and Dimensioning Systems are designed to Dimension, Weigh and Scan (DWS) parcels and shipments. They include highly technological components like automated scales and cameras to record the data of goods ready for any logistics facility. Acquiring the dimensions and weight of a parcel, they scan barcodes and easily sort packages along a conveyor line.

Freight charges have always been based on either weight or volume weight, and in most circumstances, whichever is greater. On average, the volume weight calculated (using the maximum dimensions L x W x H multiplied by a density factor, such as 250 kg/m3) can be twice the physical weight. This means that the volume weight is greater than the physical weight for an average of 75 per cent of shipments. With our Freight Dimensioning System, your parcels, pallets and goods will be measured accurately and efficiently. There are various models to suit applications and requirements.

These systems are certified, including streamer trimming, under International Standards for Multi-Dimensional Measuring Instruments and Check weighing Systems.
