Carrier Logistics intros freight dimensioning, weighing system

van freightA faster, trouble-free weighing and measuring of shipments to help carriers save on costs and provide accurate rates has been introduced by Carrier Logistics Inc. (CLI) in partnership with Rice Lake Weighing Systems.

“Over a billion dollars a year are lost due to inaccurate weights,” said Ken Weinberg, vice president sales and co-founder of CLI, “so we have been taking the greatest care in meeting truckers’ need for the latest equipment to do this accurately, easily, and conveniently.”

The system is currently live at Custom Companies, a full-service transportation company and long-term CLI customer with major operations in Chicago and Los Angeles, Weinberg said.

CLI is a transportation software provider to LTL, combined LTL and truckload, asset light and non-asset companies.

“Trucking companies know that for reasons of safety, liability and revenue it is critical to invest in modern equipment to electronically capture freight dimensions and weight,” said Glenn Zalusky of Rice Lake, a manufacturer and marketer of commercial weighing and measuring equipment.
