Cargo Spectre customized an automated freight-dimensioning solution to solve the overcharging challenges experienced by a shipping services broker by dramatically improving the accuracy of cargo dimensions and eliminating reweighs.
1 Eliminate reweighs
2 Provide reliable dimension documentation
3 Improve dimensioning accuracy
4 Increase shipping efficiency
MountainMovers Transportation & Logistics is a broker company in Texas that provides shippers with the best rates possible to move their LTL/TL/PTL freight. Due to a high volume of inaccurate and misrepresented freight dimensions and weights, the company was wasting too much time and money on reweighs demanded by carriers. MountainMovers contacted Cargo Spectre for a superior, new weighing and dimensioning solution that could improve accuracy and eliminate these costly reweighs. We worked the client to reduce human error and increase the speed and reliability of freight dimensions and weights, beginning with a custom consultation to identify a speedy and affordable solution that met their needs.
After studying MountainMovers’ weighing and dimensioning process, determined that our Pallet Spectre and Parcel Spectre systems could dramatically improve the accuracy and efficiency of the client’s measurements by producing NTEP-certified weights and dimensions much faster and more reliably than human input. These Cargo Spectre systems use automated A.I. scanning technology to accurately calculate the precise weight and dimensions of every pallet or parcel in just seconds. At the same time, our systems photograph every piece of freight that is weighed. Each measurement is automatically recorded in an electronic database for easy retrieval and sharing. Following a quick demonstration, the ease of using the Pallet Spectre and Parcel Spectre convinced MountainMovers that we could help them achieve their accuracy goals.
PROJECT GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
Accurate, reliable cargo weights and measures were our client’s immediate objective, but saving time and money by eliminating reweighs was the real goal. The best-in-class affordability of the Parcel Spectre and Pallet Spectre systems were key here. MountainMovers paid a one-time upfront payment of $6,000 each for the Pallet Spectre and Parcel Spectre equipment, installation, and training—dramatically less than the $100,000 charged by our competitors. After installing our advanced machine-learning systems, MountainMovers pay only an all-inclusive $500 monthly fee for each system as long as they are needed.
MEASURE OF SUCCESS
Due to the faster, more accurate, NTEP-certified weights provided automatically by our systems, MountainMovers now have the consistent, reliable measurements to successfully contest carriers who insist on reweighs. The client can now confidently provide its customers with accurate, competitive pricing for its brokering services. With more efficient and reliable data stored and shared easily via the cloud, MountainMovers can even provide customers with real-time info dropped straight into any computer around the world, creating easy and efficient customer service capabilities that give them a competitive advantage.
