Have you ever been overcharged by inaccurate shipping cost or Dimensional (or DIM) weight? In the $400 billion e-commerce industry, “free” and “fast” shipping are not affordable for many online retailers. The underlying reason is dimensional weight, a concept introduced by couriers like UPS and FedEx to account for the volume that a package occupies in addition to weight. In eCommerce, dimensional weight primarily dictates the final fees.
Warehouses can now use accurate dimensions and choose the right shipping agent for by dimension, weight, destination, mode of transport and time and also avoid unforeseen dimensional weight chargebacks.
Tricolops uses the Orbbec Astra S depth sensor and state of the art computer vision software to quickly measure parcel dimensions.
