Intelligent Freight Handling Solution for Lufthansa Cargo
Vitronic, a global leader in industrial machine vision, is providing Lufthansa Cargo AG with an innovative solution for the automated capture of air freight. A total of ten volume scanner systems are responsible for measuring and weighing freight during initial acceptance at six of the airline's locations. Using laser technology, these systems capture cargo measurements with the utmost accuracy, while an integrated scale simultaneously determines the weight. Advantages include increased efficiency and streamlined processes. Furthermore, the systems transfer all data and images from each captured piece of cargo to the airline's IT structures. This information is then used, for example, for documentation or billing purposes. Using smart technology is a key element in the efficient management of shipments. Furthermore. These systems are vital in optimizing operative processes and, at the same time, creating more transparency throughout the entire process chain.
