HOW IT WORKS

Take your freight measuring and weighing process from more than a minute to just a few seconds. Here’s how it works:

OPTIONS FOR INITIATING YOUR DIMENSIONER

We offer a variety of triggering options to help you maximize the efficiency of your dimensioner and process.

HANGING BARCODE SCANNER

Hang a scanner from the ceiling near your dimensioner. This lets forklift operators trigger the dimensioner without leaving the fork.

BARCODE SCANNER CONNECTED TO FORKLIFT

Trigger the dimensioner using a wired handheld scanner connected to your forklift’s on-board computer.

MOBILE BARCODE SCANNER

Outfit each forklift with its own bluetooth-enabled scanner for another quick and convenient way to trigger scans without getting off the fork.

TRIGGERING APP

Don’t use barcodes? No problem. Use our triggering app to manually trigger the dimensioner from a tablet or computer.
