3 ways you can use dimensioning data to improve your warehousing

Updated: Mar 28, 2023

Fulfilment and warehousing are some of the most significantly growing sectors at this time. With the boom of online shopping over the past few years, there have been huge opportunities for fulfilment depots and logistics warehouses to grow. These businesses are constantly looking for new technology to enable them to become more efficient and profitable, dimensioning is at the forefront of this, but how will it benefit them?

Optimising your packaging

If staff don't know the exact dimensions of your product, how are they supposed to package it without wasting any space? One way in which companies waste a lot of money is by shipping items within boxes that are far too big, essentially paying to ship air. By dimensioning your products, you will know their exact size and weight, enabling you to save on shipping costs by limiting the size of your parcels.

Increased picking efficiency

Automated picking systems are becoming more common throughout warehouses, helping to save time on the picking of inventory throughout warehouses. However, these picking systems need highly accurate dimensioning data to be able to properly operate. Implementing a high-quality dimensioning solution will supply the data needed to invest in and operate other systems.

More organised SKU slotting

SKU slotting is the process of allocating products to specific locations in a warehouse, according to product characteristics. Essentially, products are stored within a certain area of a warehouse depending on their size, weight or perhaps product type. Implementing a dimensioning system will help to gather product SKU data and better optimise SKU slotting.
