The implementation of cubing and dimensioning technology is increasing in popularity due to their unique ability to solve a variety of frequently encountered supply chain challenges with a reasonable investment. Cubing and weighing solutions are now available in varying sizes, prices and durability options to meet the needs of any distribution center. These tools are designed to eliminate manual data entry, reduce inventory data errors and increase profits. Focusing on these operational improvements are more important than ever due to the increasing shipping rates for major carriers such as FedEx and UPS. The dimensional weight pricing structure raised the average shipping cost 30%. This led to warehouse operators searching for savings in other areas so as to not pass these rate increases on to their customers.
Datex partner, Rice Lake Weighing Systems, is one of the top providers of cubing and dimensioning technologies for the supply chain industry. They have been in business for over 70 years and now offer over 40,000 different weighing products for a variety of different industries. Their expertise has allowed many SCM businesses to make significant improvements to their operations ranging from more optimized inventory putaway and storage, improved carton selection, and more stable load/pallet building. When paired with warehouse management technology, cubing systems allow warehouses of any size to have more data available at their fingertips. This helps decision makers and staff make critical decisions on the fly while saving time and money.
