Needs-based measurement of freight up to 7 meters in length
From this date, forward users of the freight measurement system APACHE portal from AKL-tec GmbH can measure and fairly account for cargo of up to 7 meters in size. The maximum measuring capacity was increased from 5,2 metres to 7 metres due to a type approval revision of the APACHE p8 system. With the previous maximum length of 5,2 meters the APACHE p8 was already in a class of its own in the range of legally binding volumetric measuring. This is especially relevant during the acquisition of legally binding master data when it comes down to the last gram and centimetre. These specific parameters are detected by the electronic eyes of APACHE, where two laser scanners are attached to a measuring beam and measure the freight based on length, width and height. The cargo can optionally be weighed and furthermore be documented by a camera. For the measuring process the freight is placed on a measuring zone with a forklift, pallet truck or hand pallet truck and the process is started through the scan of a barcode or manually. Finally, the data will be sent to the customers data base through defined interfaces. “With the freight measurement of up to 7 meters we can offer logisticians entirely new possibilities for the precise invoicing of extremely large shipments. The inspection of the nominal value to the actual value can uncover underdeclared freight which amortizes the system quickly”, explains Rüdiger Elben, CEO of AKL-tec GmbH.
