Shipping rates are determined by dimensional weight by both UPS and FedEx, which makes it increasingly important for order fulfillment centers to use cartonization software. Cartonization software combined with scan-weigh-dimensioning technology is vital for B2B and B2C internet fulfillment operations to achieve maximum productivity combined with high accuracy. Capturing the dimension and weight of cartons prepared for outbound shipments eliminates charge-back penalties from freight carriers such as FedEx, UPS and the USPS.
Best practices for pick and pack processes in warehouse and distribution center operations should begin with accurate SKU and product dimension and weight, allowing for accurate carton selection prior to picking and packing. Cartonization software will determine the best carton to pick, pack and ship products in which eliminates the guesswork of operators who manually select cartons at the beginning of the packing process. Operators tend to select cartons erring on the larger size which will end up costing more in the long run with higher shipping rates and more packing materials such as shipping peanuts and air pillows.
