Parcel and Pallet Dimensioners
PSL Trading is a freight forwarding business headquartered in South Africa. PSL arranges cargo shipments on behalf of shippers, each of whom relies upon PSL to collect accurate weights and measures to protect their profits. PSL’s leadership realized that the business was wasting too many man hours collecting these measurements, which were both slow and prone to inaccuracies. The company needed faster, more reliable, certified documentation to ensure smooth transactions. PSL reached out to Cargo Spectre for an affordable, automated solution to increasing efficiency.
After providing PSL with a free consultation on automation possibilities, Cargo Spectre performed a complimentary audit of the company’s facilities and processes. Our seasoned personnel identified that automated weights and dims could make processing PSL’s palletized and parcel freight significantly faster and more accurate, reducing labor and potential shipper complaints at the same time. We recommended both the Pallet Spectre and Parcel Spectre automated dimensioning systems to dramatically improve measuring speed, accuracy, and reliability across PSL’s facilities. These dimensioning systems both use automated A.I. scanning technology to accurately calculate the precise weights and measurements of every piece of cargo that enters a warehouse. Our systems automatically produce NTEP-certified weights and dimensions that are instantly recorded in an electronic database for easy retrieval and sharing.
PROJECT GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
Our primary goal in working with PSL was to increase weight and dim accuracy while allowing the company to process freight much more quickly, eliminating wasted time, labor, and money. PSL wanted to find a permanent solution to slow, laborious, and inaccurate manual measuring so they could concentrate on their core business and providing added value to their clients. Cargo Spectrue achieved this goal by providing automated machine-learning systems that record NTEP-certified dims and weights at the simple click of a button, giving PSL a competitive advantage.
MEASURE OF SUCCESS
Thanks to Cargo Spectre’s fast, accurate, NTEP-certified measurements, PSL Trading began eliminating cost inefficiencies on Day 1 by eliminating time and money wasted on manual labor. With more efficient, certified data stored and shared easily via the cloud, PSL Trading now enjoys a competitive advantage in the speed and accuracy of its service. Best of all, Cargo Spectre provided a highly affordable solution to PSL’s concerns—each system only cost $6,000 upfront to install.
