Axle weighing helps ensure that vehicles are safely loaded to their rated capacity and to avoid the many problems associated with imbalance and overloading. Common issues include increased fuel consumption and vehicle wear and tear, road damage, the risk of rollover, and an adverse effect on vehicle handling such as an increased stopping distance.
Government and Traffic Commissioners are putting a greater focus on identifying overloaded vehicles, with an increasing number of vehicles being stopped and checked. In addition the installation of secret road sensors on UK roads has given authorities a new tool with which to identify and target offenders. Weighing the axles of vehicles (LCVs & HGVs) before they leave your site ensures your business stays within the law while also maximising fleet efficiency and safety.
Whether you need a heavy duty weighing solution, the ability to weigh-in-motion, or a system that is fully portable, Avery Weigh-Tronix has an axle weighing solution to meet your requirements.
