Zebra SmartPack brings visibility to the loading dock

By DC Velocity Staff

Supply chain solution provider Zebra Technologies Corp. launched SmartPack Trailer, a technology package that provides the transportation and logistics industry with real-time operational visibility on the most efficient way to load trailers while improving load quality, staff training, and safety, the company said. The product is designed to help public and private carriers of freight and parcels across ground and air transport modalities, the company said.

SmartPack uses a depth sensor and a visual camera to capture operational data such as load density, trailer fullness, images of loads in progress, and the number of packages scanned and loaded per hour. Dock managers can analyze that data to derive actionable insights for personnel and maximize performance and profitability, Zebra said.
