3D Cameras – Solving Dimensioning Problems with a Portable Solution

Whether you’re working in a large warehouse or shipping a single product, knowing dimensions of packages is important to the bottom line. It’s imperative that package and pallet measurements are recorded accurately and efficiently. While a dimensioning station might work for large amounts of product being received or shipped out, they are costly and stationary. What if your work environment demands a more flexible and mobile solution?

Why Dimension?

There are many reasons to know the dimensions of pallets, boxes, or parcels. The first that often comes to mind is maximizing space, which is a priority for warehouses. Knowing the size of the items being stacked helps to get the most out of available shelf space.

Shipping is another major factor. Today most shipping companies no longer charge only by weight, but also include the package size in the pricing model. Driving the importance of having all the specifics for packages and shipments communicated to freight handlers in a timely manner to avoid additional fees.  


Not only can boxes be measured, but rooms and trucks can be measured as well. This allows you to make the most out of the available space, by stacking everything in the most efficient way. An additional benefit to using a rugged tablet with a 3D camera is the simplicity of integrating other software and features, such as barcode scanners or RFID readers.
