Accuracy of shipments is key
in keeping freight costs down
and customers happy.

When a company is small,
that means manually checking
each shipment.

However,
Richard Estalella,
Senior Vice-President at Arbonne,
shares a quicker method.*

“Whereas previously each carton at Arbonne
had to be hand-checked for content accuracy
against the merchandise pick list,
the warehouse control system has allowed
specific weight tolerances
to be established
and scales on the conveyors
allow the company to know that if
the right products were selected
the weight will be correct.”

Can you also use weight
as a double check
on shipments?
