Cargo, Container, and Vehicle Weighing for Shippers, Yards, Ports, and Terminals
There are opportunities for weighing at multiple points along the supply chain for inland and overseas shipping. Ranging from weighing cargo in the process of packing the shipment, to rapid screening of containers and vehicles at high volume gates, Intercomp has sensors and scales to meet the weighing requirements.
Having Accurate cargo and container weights generates 3 primary benefits:
Safety, Compliance, and Efficiency.
For overseas shipments, IMO SOLAS Chapter VI guidelines require Verified Gross Mass (VGM) for container weights, with two different methods to obtain the VGM:
Method 1: Weigh the packed container
Method 2: Weigh each item loaded into container and add tare weight of empty container
Method 1: Weigh-In-Motion Scales & Sensors
Weigh-In-Motion (WIM) Scales are used to acquire Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW) of Tractor and Chassis without stopping the vehicle. Curb weight is subtracted to obtain Verified Gross Mass (VGM) of container.
