How Does a Dimensioner Actually Work In a Real Life Environment

Dimensioners are continually being installed by most LTL carriers in the U.S. Some clients are not sure how they actually work. This video that was done by Saia and shows real life examples of how the process works using a Mettler Toledo freight dimensioner.

Pictures are worth a thousand words -- Videos are priceless when truly understanding dimensioners.

A few take aways to remember:

  • Keep your shipment within the confines of the pallet. Never overhang cartons as they tend to get damaged and increase the cube of the shipment.
  • Do not put an extra box on the top of pallet as the video has shown. You will end up paying for that space on density based NMFC commodities.
  • The better you are at keeping your shipments in a tightly compacted footprint, the better your overall logistics costs will be.
