DS Smith, a leading sustainable packaging manufacturer, implements a digital 3D dimensioning system to improve logistics operations
DS Smith, a worldwide leading provider of sustainable packaging solutions, paper products, and recycling services, needed to upgrade an end-of-line monitoring solution to automate a labor-intensive process by replacing it with one that provides higher precision, real-time measurement capabilities. The company turned to a solution using SICK’s sensor intelligence, Microsoft Azure Depth Platform, and AI software developed by Neadvance.
As a leading provider of sustainable fiber-based packaging, DS Smith improves transport and storage efficiency, boosts retail presentation, and increases product sales for customers worldwide. Headquartered in London, the company plays a central role in the value chain across various industries including e-commerce, fast-moving consumer goods, and manufacturing. The company is constantly looking for ways to improve and optimize its production and warehousing processes. To accomplish this, the availability of real-time dimensional data of packaged product is essential.
