Cubetape Bluetooth Scanner-Dimensioner

Ideal for express freight carriers, freight forwarders, and air freight carriers, the robust and durable Cubetape dimensioning tool is offered by KSS Corporate Accounts division for the US market. The Cubetape mobile digital dimensioning and measuring device captures the dimensions of parcels and large consignments just like a standard tape measure, but with the added benefit of calculating a volumetric weight for the shipper and wirelessly transferring the data. Cubetape has value for LTL shipments since it can readily record the length, width and height of each pallet on a shipment. Cubetape can be integrated with ERP systems and shipping software, connecting effortlessly to eliminate the manual entry of length, width and height, saving valuable time in the fast-paced freight industry.

Cubetape is certified as a legal for trade device, which means it can be legally used to charge by dimension. Cubetape is lightweight and designed to fit neatly into a pocket or holster. It has a durable design and a rubber cover to protect it from the harsh warehouse environment.

Increase Efficiency

Increase process efficiency by up to 50%. Cubetape eliminates the need to make notes and enter them manually into a shipping system. It can also save significant time in load planning for outbound vehicles.

No Data Entry

Using Cubetape, all dimensions are securely sent straight to your ERP or shipping system with mobile data, eliminating the risk of errors from hand-written notes.

No Overhead System Needed

Cubetape can produce the same results as expensive overhead systems at a fraction of the cost, without the bottle-necks associated with a single dimensioning point. Loading staff can use Cubetape to dimension on their way to the outbound gate without the need to queue or travel to a designated area.

Charge by Volumetric Weight

Maximize vehicle loads without losing out on the revenue generated from larger but lighter packages or smaller heavier packages. Cubetape makes volumetric charging easy by digitally calculating the volumetric weight of any parcel, pallet or consignment measured and comparing it to its actual weight. It can then automatically flag in the system if a charge-back needs to be made and a price adjusted.

Advance Load Planning

Verify consignment dimensions at the point of collection. Data can be synced straight to your load planning software to help you plan your outbound vehicle volume before the consignments arrive at your depot and avoid last minute vehicle cube-out. Advanced load planning can not only make your processes more efficient but can save cost.

Revenue Protection

Cubetape can be combined with a weighing device such as a forklift truck scale, pallet truck scale or platform scale to form a solution for revenue protecting consignments. Combining the latest in weighing technology with the Cubetape device means you can now revenue protect 100% of consignments without slowing your process down and reap the rewards of lost revenue.

KSS Inspector App

Pair CubeTape with Kanawha Scales’ proprietary Inspector application to increase logistical efficiency. The KSS Inspector app is a web-based software for capturing field data such as dimensions, pictures, and associated freight handling details at a dock facility. The application provides a central repository of information to allow freight inspections to be centrally located for visibility by all pertinent personnel. The HTML5 compliant application can be accessed via PC, tablet, and mobile phones, providing ease of use to end users.

The Inspector application can be hosted locally in a data center or in an Azure environment. The core functions provide for a user/role based login to access to only the required portions of the application for personnel. Support for multiple facilities is provided within the application to allow for the tracking of entered data specific to a service center location. Through the role based security model, end users can be restricted to a specific service center or multiple centers based upon the job role (regional managers, corporate office personnel, etc.

Each user is allocated a license based on the type of user. User licenses provide the ability to review uploaded information associated with each inspection. Inspector licenses provide the ability to upload new inspection data to the centralized system. An API license allows for the extraction of inspection data via web services to connect the data to internal business systems that may already be in place.

  • Inspections are captured via a simple form page.
  • Barcodes can be scanned using the onboard device camera or be entered through a connected barcode scanning device.
  • Multiple camera images can be stored and then associated with the inspection.
  • Pictures can be taken and selected for download to a local PC or e-mailed to other personnel or customers.
  • Reports can be generated for a  given timeframe to provide a printed copy of the inspection details.

CubeTape and Inspector App are offered exclusively by our Corporate Accounts division.
