The CSN840 Pallet™

TNT have been a valued customer of METTLER TOLEDO for years. So when they needed a system to capture the dimensions, weight and ID of pallets passing through their hubs in France, they once again turned to us. The CSN840 Pallet™ can measure almost any pallet and ensures a return on investment within weeks.

While parcel dimensioning has become standard in the carrier industry, it is still fairly common that pallets are measured by hand. This is changing as carriers realise that pallet dimensioning is one of the areas in which there is the the greatest potential for revenue recovery. By ensuring they have correct weight and volume data on pallets, companies make sure they invoice according to the amount of space goods occupy in their vehicles.

From Manual to Automatic
TNT wanted a solution to integrate into five different terminals in France. Previously in these depots, pallets were measured by hand. Manual measuring is time consuming and can be inaccurate. To speed up the processs and ensure correct results, the company decided to invest in the CSN840 Pallet™.

Easy Integration
The system was set up in the five different locations over existing scales that TNT already used to weigh their pallets. It was integrated with existing software through a specialised interface that we created specifically for them. This interface makes it easy to install our solutions at TNT sites all around the world.

Measuring Dimensions of More Pallets
Due to time constraints, TNT used to measure only 40% of pallets that passed through these depots. Now, they measure 90% and earn more money on each pallet measured.
