Weighing scale system in logistic and transportation.

Weighing scale system play a critical role in the operations of many businesses, including the transportation and logistics industries. These two industries rely on high quality, accurate weighing equipment not just when it comes to weight measurement, but also in the prevention of accidents and penalties from governing authorities. Here at AWE, we encounter stories of where road accidents have occurred, sometimes where these have caused injury and death. Transporting heavy loads on the highway comes with unforeseen risk directly related to the weight of loads being transported, which is why the governing authorities enforce strict regulations. Imagine if one vehicle operator/driver fails to adhere to the regulations when it comes transporting loads and this results in causing an accident. The authorities would see the operator and driver responsible, and they will be subject to serious penalties, fines and possibly imprisonment.

The AWE Group offers a variety of Truck Scales, Weighbridges and Onboard Weighing Solutions which can save you thousands of dollars in fines, compensation claims, and non-profitable expenses due to breaches of regulations and laws governing overloaded vehicles. As they say, prevention is better than cure.
