Problems faced by the Customer

  1. Manual measurements and data entries – The dimensions of the boxes were first measured using measuring tape and then put on a platform scale to find the weight. The data were logged in excel sheets for further processing. The entire process was manual, time consuming and always prone to error.
  2. High shipping costs – It was difficult to predict the shipping costs because the actual space occupied by the packages inside the transport vehicle were never known. Hence the shipping rate charged by the carrier or freight forwarders was always high.
  3. IT related issues – There was no robust software to store/validate data and this was a major blockage in decision making, route planning and manifesting.
