Our Innovation Analysts recently looked into emerging technologies and up-and-coming startups working on solutions for the logistics sector. As there are many startups working on a wide variety of solutions, we want to share our insights with you. This time, we are taking a look at 3 promising warehouse dimensioning startups.
Heat Map: 3 Top Warehouse Dimensioning Startups
For our 3 top picks, we used a data-driven startup scouting approach to identify the most relevant solutions globally. The Global Startup Heat Map below highlights 3 interesting examples out of 70 relevant solutions. Depending on your specific needs, your top picks might look entirely different.
Tricolops – Space Management
Space optimization and utilization are critical challenges in order to improve the automation and efficiency of warehouses. Dimensioning systems enable companies to calculate the size, weight, and shape of their products to determine the space required for storage.
The Canada-based startup Tricolops develops dimensioning systems for the accurate measurement of size, weight, and shape of inbound and outbound parcels. It also provides a mobile unit to measure the dimensions of inventory in the warehouse. Tricolops’ integrated PC interface software allows users to capture and store data for various warehouse operations.
e3neo – Packaging Optimization
Packaging is a critical part of the eCommerce industry that requires speed and accuracy to complete and ship orders. The manual nature of packing products sometimes leads to boxes of the wrong size. This reduces productivity and increases corrugate along with dunnage costs. Dimensioning and weighing systems automate the packaging process and select boxes with the best fit.
The French startup e3neo creates low-cost automation packaging solutions for industrial clients. Their patented 3D-algorithm, Precub’it!, analyzes dimensional data of given products. The software then shares this data with automated packaging systems to optimize the packaging dimensions. More products of e3neo include the Form’it! Tray and Form’it! Case – automated packaging equipment.
beevision – Load Planning
Load planning software determines the optimal way to load cargo into containers. It enhances space utilization and reduces shipping costs. However, it requires accurate measurements of pallet dimensions and load weights. Dimensioning systems also calculate load weights and dimensions and extract accurate data for load planning.
Beevision is a Turkish startup offering automatic parcel and pallet dimensioning solutions. Their dimensioners use 3D imaging technology to measure parcel and pallet dimensions. Additionally, the startups photographs the parcels while scanning to settle any freight damage claims.
