It is no secret that sustainability within the logistics sector is a huge talking point. Reducing the greenhouse gases contributing to global warming is a responsibility felt by all of us. Emissions from the transportation sector, both domestic and commercially, accounts for a large percentage of overall global emissions. Our commitment is to reduce greenhouse gases within the sector by innovating dimensioning within logistics. Accurate dimensions, in turn, leads to accurate cargo planning and loading. Data is collated, including stored images, using Freight Measure and can be used to form on target pricing eliminating estimations. How can we as a company use Freight Measure to promote better sustainability within logistics? Many logistics companies pledge to have zero emissions by a target date by converting to electric or hybrid vehicles and reaching for technology to streamline warehouse processes in keeping with demand. Ocean and air freight are the biggest contributors, with road transport following behind. We at GPC pledge to assist companies, in keeping with international law, to focus on automation and digitisation. The technology we have created using artificial intelligence (in conjunction with Intel RealSense 3D cameras and other hardware manufacturers) excels at simplifying dimensioning, increasing accuracy and cargo optimisation. Clear dimensions of freight which are obtained within 1 second using Freight Measure, means forward planning is easier and cost effective. Precise cargo loading will reduce half loads and work towards a sustainable future hand in hand with Freight Measure.
