Benefits of parcel intelligence
The great value of adopting parcel intelligence in distribution centres is that the system can be used for any item the human eye can see – important for hubs that are increasingly receiving different types of items driven by the boom in e-retail.
The system is constantly improving, so if inbound flows change and new types of parcels are arriving, the system can adjust to those changes through the image analytics and computerised categorisation.
As mentioned, parcel intelligence will work with any camera technology – from high quality line scanners to simpler cameras used only for this purpose of taking pictures of individual items.
The system can be installed anywhere and on any type of equipment, whether it’s at the inbound receiving point, the booms, the point at which the items are placed on the sorting system, over the conveyors, over the chutes or on the gates in and out of the facility.
