FreightScan, LLC, a developer of technology solutions for the freight and logistics industry, has formed a strategic partnership with Swissport International, Ltd., which will enable Swissport to install automated dimensioning systems in facilities across its global network, offering what the two say is a “premium level of cargo handling services” to airlines. The first phase of the partnership will extend from the Amsterdam station and include additional installations at London Heathrow, Frankfurt, Chicago and Los Angeles airports. The FS100 dimensioning systems designated for these facilities capture length, width and height for all types of cargo, creating a printable and retrievable record of the dimensions, dimensional weight, a scan image and digital photo of each piece of a shipment. Subsequent phases will continue to roll out FS100 systems to Swissport’s major facilities throughout Europe, North America, Africa, Asia and the Middle East.
