Product information "Freight measurement Linecube"

Dynamic measurement of freight

The Linecube® volume and weight measuring system is used to determine the weight and dimensions of packages. A high quality line laser ensures exact parameterisation. While it scans the packages and determines the volume, they are simultaneously weighed and the resulting volume weight is calculated from these values. This data (L x W x H) simplifies transport planning and improves the use of space in transport vehicles. Simultane- ously, packaging, storage and shipping planning can be optimised. Conveyor belts with integrated scales, which have a speed of up to 0.8 m/s, are used as a transportation means. This makes the measuring and weighing process simple and efficient. It is ideal for companies with medium and high shipping volumes. Optionally, each package can be documented by photo.

Data transfer

The determined volume and weight data can be stored as a CSV file in higher-level IT systems via WLAN. Alternatively, they can also be transferred to an SQL database.

Volume weight

Dimensional weight or volume weight is a practical quantity used to evaluate the cost of a shipment. The dimensional weight formula was introduced to calculate the actual cargo space required for goods that are light but bulky. Volume weight is calculated based on the dimensions of a shipment: (length x width x height in cm) / "service_provider_dependent_divisor" = volume weight in kg. The volume weight of the shipment is compared with the actual mass determined with a scale (weighing weight). The higher of the two values is decisive for the freight rate.

Example:

Package 1 Package 2
 L x W x H = 20 cm x 30 cm x 40 cm, Weight = 6 kg  L x W x H = 20 cm x 30 cm x 40 cm, Weight = 2 kg
 Volume weight = (20 cm x 30 cm x 40 cm) / (5000 cm3/kg) = 4,8 kg  Volume weight = (20 cm x 30 cm x 40 cm) / (5000 cm3/kg) = 4,8 kg
Calculated weight: 6 kg Calculated weight: 4,8 kg
