TRIGGERING YOUR DIMENSIONER: TWO OPTIONS

FreightSnap has developed two convenient methods for initiating scans from your dimensioner. Choose the option that works best for your workflow.

TRIGGERING APP

Recommended for companies who don’t use barcodes to inventory their freight. The triggering app comes pre-installed on a mobile device or computer, either of which can be placed at a workstation near the dimensioner, or installed on the forklifts in your operation.

How it works:

• Drop your freight under the dimensioner

• Type in the ID# tied to your freight & click “Scan”

• Seconds later, the measurements, photos & weight are automatically sent to your desired system

BARCODE SCANNER

Recommended for companies who use barcodes to inventory their freight. Outfit each forklift with its own barcode scanner, or place a scanner at a nearby workstation to maximize throughput.

How it works:

• Drop your freight under the dimensioner

• Scan the barcode tied to your freight

• Seconds later, the measurements, photos & weight are automatically sent to your desired system
