In the usually busy warehouse despatch and receiver’s environment recording the palette exact contents on despatch and receipt may not be the highest priority. However, the benefits are tangible.

The power of visual data

The real benefit of you positioning load quality assurance at key positions during despatch and receipt of warehouse goods is that it saves you time and money. It is a strategic use of computer vision in warehouses.

Computer vision in warehouses

The running costs of warehouse management can be contained using computer vision at strategic entry and exit points throughout the warehouse.

By recording all packaged shipments ready to leave the warehouse and all those arriving at point of entry you keep careful records. This is vital in warehouse management to ensure your work has been completed as contracted at point of exit. And you visualise product status on arrival.

Here is an example of how that might add up in a standard warehousing claims management

Background

This global shipping company operates a large number of warehouses servicing key global retailers, who have strict Load Quality policies and checks.

Challenge

Due to high quality demands, this customer manually takes photos of every layer of goods loaded into a trailer or container, which slows down the loading process. Simultaneously, pictures are sometimes forgotten or misplaced, or have a low quality which impedes or prevents any possibility of claims being handled effectively.

Solution

By mounting cameras on the loading trucks, and connecting them to the Sentispec platform, images are routinely captured for each shipment, with consistent quality. What is more, they are easily searchable digitally.

The huge advantage is that the customer will spend less time processing claims, and have a higher rejection rate, whilst freeing up manpower for critical tasks.
