With warehouse space becoming ever more valuable, every cubic foot counts. Gone are the days when seat-of-the-pants space management and a tape measure got you by. Add to that the recent introduction of dimension-based shipping rates by FedEx®, UPS® and other carriers – which leaves many businesses struggling to control costs, calculate accurate rates for their online customers, or even to audit shipping invoices.
That one-two punch has many DC and warehouse managers putting “get a dimensioning system” on their to-do list. As you consider investing in a new system, it’s important to select one that can help you leverage all the potential benefits of dimensioning – today and in the future.
