Automated Inline Shipping and Manifest Systems

New Cubiscan 275 Automated Shipping System for small to medium operations. The shipping and manifest process can be optimized with our automated solution to remove touch labor and seamlessly interface with any host and shipping software. Automating the shipping and manifest process typically provides the greatest payback with minimal investment. As a rule of thumb, if a DC is shipping 500+ packages per day, there is typically payback that justifies automating some or all of the shipping and manifest processes. Labor: Typical end of line shipping areas employ the labor of people who manually scan, weigh, and manifest each shipment. 

Shipping systems may be standalone lines or integrated with existing conveyor systems. Cubiscan provides systems to include the necessary conveyance for induction, zones for each task such as labeling and weighing, and handling with diverts for exceptions handling or sorting to shipping lanes. High speed checkweighers are used to record actual shipping weight and can also be used to compare an expected weight to the actual weight, which is another way to validate order picking and avoid costly mistakes. The weight is merged with the data from the inbound scan and passed to the shipping software or host, depending on how labels are created in the operation. Customers who ship wide varieties of cartons, use vendor supplied cases, or otherwise need to report dimensional weight will greatly benefit from including the cubic information provided by Cubiscan in motion cubing systems. 

After shipping items have been scanned and weighed and/or cubed, the shipping label data is merged and a label is automatically printed and applied to the box. A verification scan is performed to the shipping label to ensure the label is readable and to merge all data to the manifest LPN, weight, optional dimensions, and tracking number.

New to Content Distribution? Here’s what you need to know

Content distribution refers to any means used by brands to disseminate content to large and targeted audiences. Core content should only be published on platforms you own as it’s the only way to ensure your content isn’t subject to changing rules overnight. Content distribution and content marketing are not the same thing, but you need both. In online marketing, content distribution and content marketing are usually spoken of as though they were the same thing. Where content promotion focuses on sharing information in public spaces without targeting any particular group, content distribution aims to do the opposite. 

Content distribution is more targeted as it aims to send content to specific people. By promoting, you maximize exposure of your content, whereas by distributing, you get your content to audiences that need it most. Without identifying whom to target, where they are located, what kind of content they’re interested in, and how to distribute content to them, you will just be throwing your content at anyone and everyone. Using content discovery platforms: These networks are increasingly becoming popular as they get people to read content within their usual web-browsing experience without feeling as though they are looking at an ad. Though the cost is significant with tools like Outbrain charging $5000 per month and Taboola $2000 monthly, 45 percent of B2B marketers find this paid method very worthwhile. 

As you continue to explore new places to distribute your content, your understanding of your content distribution budget will become more scientific. Video content distribution: You need to do a lot more than uploading your video content on YouTube. The key is to experiment, with different content distribution tools until you find an approach that works best for your Content Marketing Strategy.
