Bidvest Mobility becomes an Authorised Partner of Cubetape in the EMEA

“With Cubetape, we want to quickly reach Transport, Logistics and E-commerce customers across EMEA. The market has been waiting long for such a handy solution of low cost mobile dimensioning of parcels and pallets, across the supply chain.

Thanks to the commercial and technical expertise of Bidvest Mobility, as our regional Authorised Partner, Cubetape will appear this year, for the first time, in the South African market - said Piotr Klepczarek, General Director of Parceltools for the EMEA region.

All-in-one Cubetape C200 provides integrated scanning and measuring of LTL and Masterdata dimensions.


Parceltools, a world leader in the design and development of hand-held LTL (Less Than Truck Load) and Masterdata scanning and measuring devices, today rolled out the next generation of its Cubetape hand-held devices that combines measuring and bar-coded scanning in one.


The Cubetape C200 device allows users to integrate measuring (mobile dimensioning) and scanning, and to do so with a mobile design. Users scanning barcodes on a parcel, or a pallet simply use the scanning function with the measuring tape in the “home” position. The dimensioning function is easily enabled by using the measuring tape as normal and then pressing the “scan” button to scan and save the measurement from the tape. 


All data is exported in real time using Bluetooth or WLAN.


The C200 offers three pathways to a superior value proposition for users:


Carrier revenue protection. Carriers must measure items in their depot to ensure correct dimensions from the shipper or 3PL. With its mobile design, Cubetape C200 complements existing fixed-position cubing and weighing machines by measuring items that may not fit into fixed-position cubing machines.


Warehouse shipping and receiving. It is critical to quickly and accurately measure any item moving in and out of a warehouse to avoid time-wasting bottlenecks. The C200s increased accuracy ensures that outgoing freight charges are correct and that costly chargebacks are avoided.


Masterdata. Each SKU in a warehouse must be entered into an ERP’s Warehouse Management System quickly and error-free. In addition, this valuable database must be regularly maintained as product box dimensions change with time. The combination of data entry and system maintenance can be done using the Cubetape 200 in combination with a bench scale. Parceltools can provide the software needed for stand-alone and networked solutions.


“The new C200 is a fast, accurate and practical way of measuring items of all shapes and sizes,” said Tony Bauer, founder and CEO of Parceltools. “Increasing accuracy, efficiency and speed is at the heart of everything the logistics industry is about, and that is what Cubetape provides.”


Some of the world’s largest transportation and logistics companies, such as DHL, DPD, DB Schenker, Pitney Bowes, DSV, CEVA Logistics and Kuehne + Nagel, to name a few, regularly use the C200, Bauer said.


“We have been building hand-held dimensioning devices for years with the idea that all stakeholders should have fast, clean and accurate access to data,” Bauer said. “This is especially true for shippers who are at the front end of the goods-movement process. The C200 puts real-time, actionable information in the shippers’ hands. The data can then be populated into the carrier’s bill of lading so the carrier can deliver a fair price to its customer before the driver arrives at the shipper dock.”
