Fairbanks Scales Announces New Parcel Dimensioner Shipping Scale

Improves accuracy, increases handling speed, and reduces errors!

Overland Park, KS – Fairbanks Scales Inc., the oldest scale company in the U.S. and the world’s leader in weighing equipment, announces its new Parcel Dimensioner Shipping Scale designed to calculate today’s shipping metrics by capturing length, width, height, and weight.

The Fairbanks Scales Parcel Dimensioner Scale offers a fast and affordable way to measure parcels, document weight, and dimensions for shipping. Unlike other dimensioning systems on today’s market, Fairbanks’ offering enables users to capture both weight and volume metrics to determine true shipping costs. The system helps eliminate costly carrier re-classing charges because packaging can be optimized in house. It also captures an image of each parcel prior to carrier pickup. Many times, this image can be of great value to show the condition of a parcel at the time of shipment. Lastly, the dimensional data collected can be used to help manage and maximize valuable storage space for inventory or supplies.

The Parcel Dimensioner is designed for easy assembly with an average completion time of 20 minutes. It’s simply a matter of attaching the mounting pole to the factory-calibrated scale and positioning the PC controller/monitor and FreightSnap dimensioning mast. Once assembled, the operator simply places a package on the scale and within seconds the package weight and cuboidal dimensions in length, width, and height are calculated and displayed.

Each Fairbanks Parcel Dimensioner comes packaged with FreightSnap’s Density Management System (DMS) which offers one year of free cloud-based data storage and round-the-clock access to individual records for all shipments scanned by the dimensioner. It also offers helpful shipping analytics that can be used to meet operational and business goals. For an additional charge, FreightSnap’s DMS platform can be customized to suit other individual business needs, such as integration with WMS, TMS, ERP, and other resource management platforms.

Investing in a Fairbanks Scales Parcel Dimensioning system provides the benefits of reducing operational costs, revenue recovery, increased throughput, reduced returns, and improved data quality. Across the board, the Fairbanks Parcel Dimensioner Shipping Scale maximizes your parcel flow and limits the amount of time spent measuring shipping parcels.
