Wheel and Axle Scales
Wheel/Axle Scale Applications for Commercial Vehicle Weighing
Weight has an important role in transportation, and there are many reasons why commercial trucks need to be weighed. One of the most important reasons is safety- if a truck is overloaded, it is a danger to the operator and to other drivers on the road. Another reason is profitability, as unknown weights can cost a company thousands of dollars in overweight fines, excessive vehicle maintenance costs, and inventory disruptions. When considering scales for over the road transportation, there are many factors that must be carefully examined such as location, vehicle throughput, space constraints, data collection and, of course, budget.
