Enterprises rely on couriers to keep merchandise and materials moving efficiently while maintaining security and traceability. When merchandise is being loadeddimensioning solutions, sensors, and vision systems track parcels onto the carrier and support exact cargo loading. Mobile computing and handheld scanners canensure visibility through the final details such as last-minuteactivities with delivery confirmation and signature capture. Below you can find solutions to the most common challenges of couriers and parcels on the go.
Inbound & Induction
While off-loading vans, trucks, trailers, and airplane containers,identification of containersas they are moved into the main facility is crucial. Barcoded information on each parcel makes it possible to direct it to the right location and maintain traceability. All you will need is the correct vision systems and fixed readers.
Identifying and sorting packages can be a rather big challenge. However, using single or multi-sided scanning tunnels with integrateddimensioners, sensors, and machine vision solutions can be of great help.Dimensioning systems are required by regulations for certified trade,and real-time image storagecan beused for video coding and OCR. Real-time pattern recognition technologywill identifyhazardous material labels helping affect sort decisions.
Intelligent outbound systems with integrated vision systems, smart cameras, RFID readers,dimensioners,or fixed scannershave the ability toexecute the automated assignment of packages. Barcode labellingwill beautomatically affixed to parcels then automatically detected and verified by reading systems. Manual operations for pallets or larger freightwill still beexecuted by staffbut supported byindustrial handheld scanners and mobile computers,will makethe whole process more efficient than ever!
During the final stage,ifdriversareequipped with mobility solutionswill be abletoverify package pickup and delivery, collect signatures,and accept payment, all while in constant communication operations and support via voice, data or text.
