With more than 10 million online stores, contributing well over US$2 Trillion to the eCommerce economy, the demand for automation has never been greater.

The supply chain and logistics industry has done a great deal of development around addressing, warehouse management and last mile space - but when we consider “data capture at the point of origin”, more is yet to come.

Bedal by ParcelKiosk aims to address the need for accurate data capture before a package enters the supply chain. Developed as a desktop solution, Bedal enables stakeholders in the supply chain to analyze data early in the shipping process and take effective decisions to improve operational productivity.

As a low cost and easy to implement dimensional platform, Bedal saves clients up to 10% in shipping costs. Simply place your package on Bedal and it will measure and weigh your parcel in under three seconds. The device’s OCR capability is powered by Lockheed Martin which enables carriers to capture key package data before it arrives at the hub. Bedal has a pre-installed image capture camera which helps shippers provide proof of shipment, settle insurance queries, etc.

About HobbyKing

HobbyKing is a Hong Kong based eCommerce site predominantly selling remote control products such as planes, helicopters, drones and accessories. Founded in 2005 in Hong Kong by Anthony Hand the company targets the market with competitively priced models while still offering quality, performance and service. HobbyKing has products for all age groups, for newcomers to experts in the world of modelling. They also own brands OrangeRx, Turnigy and Durafly.

Challenges Faced

In Hong Kong the company’s warehouse carries its entire product range of over 25,000 SKU’s, the majority of which are small to medium sized toys and parts. With such a major range and a global clientele, HobbyKing are constantly facing challenges such as:
• Manual product dimension measurements
• Parcel size calculation in the backend
• Differences between calculation and real parcel size

“Problem resolution through Bedal” by Susanne Stier, Logistics Manager

“We selected Bedal because of its capability to integrate with our existing system. Bedal helped us by increasing the accuracy of our product dimensions, order size calculation and parcel size calculation. We were also able to implement a standard box size logic in order to standardize packing globally. Getting the dimensions right at the warehouse level enables us to negotiate better shipping rates with a range of carriers and most importantly we save a lot of man hours by eliminating manual measurement checks.”

“Our finance teams would benefit because they no longer need to reconcile carrier statements. The data captured from Bedal would help our pricing team take crucial decisions when it comes to setting the right pricing models, without the risk of losing on freight costs.”
