DSV Solutions is a 3PL/4PL service provider. Each order is picked and packed on a pallet. Weighing during picking and packing ensures that the process is not interrupted.
"The advantage of mobile weighing is that it goes rapidly, without disruption of the process. In our warehouse we have thousands of pallet movements per day. The gain of time by mobile weighing rather than using a fixed scale is approximately 1.5 minute per weighing; at 400 outgoing pallets this saves 10 man-hours per day. Speaking about efficiency, for DSV Solutions this is an enormous profit."
- MISCHA VAN BERKEL, ACCOUNT MANAGER

Determining shipping weights
The Solutions division of DSV is established in the port area of Amsterdam. At this site the total warehouse floor surface is 30,000 m². In dedicated warehouses goods of well-known electronics companies and publishers are stored. It concerns batteries, micro-electronics and weld robots and scientific illustrated magazines. Each warehouse houses a single customer of DSV Solutions. Because they are competitive producers and because their customers have very specific wishes, DSV has been chosen for this Dedicated Warehouse concept.
Weighing during order picking saves 10 man-hours a day
DSV Solutions is a 3PL/4PL service provider. They look after the distribution, collect the orders and deliver the products to the end customer. Each task is picked and packed on a pallet. Weighing during picking and packing ensures that the process is not interrupted. Outgoing goods are weighed so DSV can specify the gross weight on the bill of lading. Also the scientific illustrated magazines and parcels are weighed with a RAVAS-310 during orderpicking and packing before sending.
