With more than 10 million online stores, contributing well over US$2 Trillion to the eCommerce economy, the demand for automation has never been greater.
The supply chain and logistics industry have done a great deal of development around addressing, warehouse management and last mile space - but when we consider “data capture at the point of origin”, more is yet to come.
Bedal by ParcelKiosk aims to address the need for accurate data capture before a package enters the supply chain. Developed as a desktop solution, Bedal enables stakeholders in the supply chain to analyze data early in the shipping process and take effective decisions to improve operational productivity.
As a low cost and easy to implement dimensional platform, Bedal saves clients up to 10% in shipping costs. Simply place your package on Bedal and it will measure and weigh your parcel in under three seconds. The device’s OCR capability is powered by Lockheed Martin which enables carriers to capture key package data before it arrives at the hub. Bedal has a pre-installed image capture camera which helps shippers provide proof of shipment, settle insurance queries, etc.
Bedal’s SmartConnect utility software supports multi-carrier shipping platforms, so by using optional accessories like a Windows tablet and a label printer, customers can measure a package, select a carrier and generate a label - all within 30 seconds.
