The Dimensionalizer properly reclasses & attaches photos to your bills of lading to document the freight’s condition before shipping. The integration of the equipment with our software technology will help shippers eliminate data entry errors & make better use of the dimensional data collected.
Our Dimensionalizer is a proprietary system of cameras and software that scans and measures freight. TFM’s patented software uses APIs to seamlessly communicate this information to our Transportation Management System and to the customer’s ERP. After the shipper’s data has been collected and any frequently-used shipment sizes are identified, TFM will use this profile to get quicker price quoting and to renegotiate agreements and discounts on the shipper’s behalf. The Dimensionalizer photographs the freight from 5 angles and attaches those images in the system and to the bill of lading, which is invaluable support in the event of any damage claims.
HOW IT WORKS
The Dimensionalizer provides end-to-end integration with records of each shipment before it leaves the shipping dock. It measures and dims the freight and records it all for the paperwork, including the pictures of the freight.
