FreightScan, a provider of automated dimensioning systems for the freight and logistics industry, has opened a new office in Costa Rica, citing increasing Latin American economic development and growing interest in FreightScan’s suite of automated cargo scanning systems.

FreightScan said it has compiled data from air cargo facilities in Latin America that indicate 22 per cent of total shipments in the region should be charged by dimensional weight. On average, these dimensional weight shipments have 125 kilograms of additional chargeable weight as compared to scale weight, representing more than 1.6 million kilograms of chargeable weight per air cargo facility.

“FreightScan’s suite of dimensioning products creates significant value for cargo companies around the world, and we have developed an application specifically for the agricultural trade in Latin America to improve accuracy and efficiency,” said FreightScan executive vice president of sales Randy Richards.
