Berlin, February 14, 2022 - PSI Logistics GmbH and the dimensioning equipment manufacturer Metrilus GmbH are cooperating on the integration of automated and 3D camera-based solutions for master data collection and freight dimensioning in logistics.

Metrilus uses modern technologies such as pattern recognition, computer vision, machine learning and AI applications to quickly provide high-quality logistics data. The focus of the collaboration is on simplified connectivity and direct data exchange between the warehouse management system PSIwms and the various dimensioning devices of the "MetriXFreight" product family from Metrilus. For this purpose, standardized interfaces are developed and integrated into the system logics.

The close integration of the Metrilus dimensioning and weight data with PSIwms optimizes the processes of master data maintenance, harmonization and updating as well as the operative processes in the warehouse, such as the creation of volume-optimized packing patterns by PSIwms. This is facilitated in particular by the high measurement speed of the Metrilus master data collection stations. Together with the direct connection to PSIwms, it ensures that the data of an item is available completely, immediately and with high accuracy for the further process and optimization steps.

In outgoing goods, the data of a shipment can also be transferred by means of the MetriXFreight devices via standardized interfaces. This is important for international shipments, for example, where the specification of dimensions is mandatory for customs clearance. Customers benefit from a reduced workload of the individual digitization steps and further synergy effects.

Metrilus GmbH, based in Uttenreuth near Erlangen, focuses with its MetriXFreight technology on applications in the logistics industry. www.metrilus.de (german only)
