METTLER TOLEDO recently announced its status as the first manufacturer to have been successfully granted approval by Measurement Canada to dimension packages with non-cuboidal shapes for the determination of freight, shipping and storage charges. This approval is significant in light of the transport and logistics industry’s need to have a dynamic dimensioning device capable of automatically measuring a wider list of shapes.

As a result, METTLER TOLEDO has designed the CSN210 MassFlow with new software approved to accurately measure a host of “known shapes.” Items such as tires, buckets and cans can now be separated and accurately measured in legal-for-trade invoicing to ensure maximum revenue recovery for transport and logistics companies.

What are “Known Shapes?”
Known shapes are items which are irregular in shape ranging from vehicle exhaust pipes to cylindrical paint cans or toroidals, such as tires. These shapes, and more, are programmed into METTLER TOLEDO’s new software solution. Most known shapes that are likely to pass through most package sorting depots are in the system.

Now that Measurement Canada has approved this solution, our customers can be properly paid for transporting these irregularly shaped items, guaranteeing maximum revenue protection while complying with legal requirements. The right dimensioning equipment guarantees legal-for-trade invoicing every time.

The CSN210 MassFlow
Typically used in package sorting depots, the CSN210 MassFlow is one of the most sophisticated dimensioning solutions in the METTLER TOLEDO portfolio.

Used in an unattended sorting system, it can capture dimensions and identify parcels moving on a conveyor. It accurately captures the data profile of any object including non-singulated and touching objects. The device’s advanced PILAR Technology sees every corner of the items it measures.
