1 Improve dimensioning accuracy
2 Reduce dim/weight re-checks
3 Provide reliable dimension documentation
4 Increase shipping efficiency
International Cargo Terminals Inc. (ICT) operates container freight stations in Atlanta, New York City, Los Angeles, and Miami catering to the needs of the NVOCC and freight forwarding industry. Due to recurring inaccuracies in freight dimensions and weights, the company was wasting too much time on re-checking freight. International Cargo Terminals contacted Cargo Spectre for a high-tech solution that could improve dimensioning and weighing accuracy to improve operational efficiency. We began by providing a free consultation on ways to increase the speed and reliability of the client’s freight dimensions and weights.
After a thorough review of International Cargo Terminals’ weighing and dimensioning operations, our team recommended our Pallet Spectre automated dimensioning system to dramatically reduce time spent on measurement re-checks. The Pallet Spectre system uses automated A.I. scanning technology to accurately calculate the precise measurements of every pallet ICT scans, producing NTEP-certified weights and dimensions much faster and more reliably than traditional human input. Each measurement is automatically recorded in an electronic database for easy retrieval and sharing.
PROJECT GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
Accurate, reliable, and certified cargo weights and measures were our client’s immediate objective, but saving time by eliminating re-check volume was their primary goal. ICT was specifically interested in fast, reliable dimensions for cargo measuring in the 6 ft x 6 in. x 7 in. class. Cargo Spectre quickly proved to be a valuable asset to ICT’s operations, enabling the company to provide consistently accurate weights and dimensions to its customer base in some of the busiest ports in the world.
MEASURE OF SUCCESS
Thanks to the Pallet Spectre’s incredibly accurate, NTEP-certified measurements, International Cargo Terminals can now confidently provide its customers with consistent, reliable weights and dimensions without wasting time and labor on costly re-checks. With more efficient and reliable data stored and shared easily via the cloud, ICT can also provide customers with real-time freight measurements dropped straight into any computer around the world, creating easy and efficient customer service capabilities that give them a competitive advantage.
