Scales and Weighing Equipment for Air Freight 

Air cargo is essential to many areas of modern life. E-commerce, high-value specialized cargo and a recent growth in export trade saw air freight grow by 3.8% in 2016 – almost double the industry’s growth rate of the previous five years.

However, the increase in oil and fuel prices, increased security measures plus  competition from other transport modes such as shipping, rail and increased belly cargo in passenger planes, all make it vital that air cargo is moved as efficiently and cost effectively as possible in order to continue the industry’s upward momentum.

Weighing scales and systems from Avery Weigh-Tronix can help to bill accurately and to load planes optimally.

 

What can we help with?

 

Compliance with air-freight regulations

When it comes to air freight, weight and volume are key factors. Airlines have strict regulations to ensure safe air travel – and accurate declared weight and size of freight is high on the list.

We can help you avoid delay or repack costs on air freight consignments, with our robust and reliable forklift truck scales, pallet or platform scales and mobile dimensioning devices.

Service options

And to maximise the benefits of our weighing solutions, we provide WeighCare Total™: the industry-leading service package. As our site-dedicated engineers are never more than an average of 26 minutes away from any UK postcode, we can provide a rapid, personal service. 

Revenue protection through accurately declared weights

We understand that air cargo revenue and profit depends on accurate weight and size being declared. Our highly accurate systems provide this – and integrate weight data into your billing to ensure you get paid correctly for what you handle.Our range of intelligent, accurate solutions includes bench scales, checkweighers – and for heavier loads, platform scales, robust forklift truck scales and pallet scales.

Service options

We’ve developed our industry-leading WeighCare Total™ service package to ensure your weighing equipment is operating as accurately as possible. Whether it’s a regular health check, an urgent repair or calibration, our site-dedicated engineers are never more than an average of 26 minutes away from any UK postcode, to provide a rapid, personal service.

Revenue protection and dimensional weight

Whether shipping goods by road, air or sea, having accurate data is vital to protecting profitability and charging correctly. The Revenue Protection (RP) solution from Avery Weigh-Tronix offers an effective way of capturing freight dimensions and weight, minimising human error and providing a significant time and cost saving versus manual solutions.

The Avery Weigh-Tronix market leading forklift scale, combined with our legal for trade digital dimensioning solution, can quickly capture the weight and dimension of parcels and heavy / large freight. This solution helps to protect against the revenue loss that can be caused by under declaration of consignment weights, while removing the extra processing time and floor space often associated with additional RP checks.

Customer ID, consignment ID, weight, and dimensions are captured by the system and transmitted wirelessly to back office systems for verification, providing freight handlers with the data trail required to identify and apply surcharges, while also reducing the likelihood of customer disputes and credit-backs. 

A fast, accurate weighing system also ensures that all items handled by your operation are charged accurately, further increasing your profits.

Our highly portable mobile dimensioning unit can be used independently as well as combined with weighing equipment and connects with smart devices for integration into existing software systems. Robust and highly accurate Avery Weigh-Tronix floor scales and weigh in motion forklift truck scales are amongst other options for effective weight verification.
