With its robust, patented design, the Avery WeighTronix forklift scale, combined with our legal for trade mobile digital dimensioning solution, can quickly and accurately 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 revenue protection checks.
The revnue protection system will automatically calculate a volumetric weight for the consignment and compare it to the actual weight, alerting the operator to consignments where a volumetric surcharge could be applied. The software and indicator link to back office systems where the data can be used to cross check customer declared data with the data provided by the revenue protection system. The data sent to the back office includes date and time and operator ID, as well as the weight and dimensions, providing a verified audit trail in support of surcharges raised.
With durability and accuracy at the very heart of its innovative design, the Avery Weigh-Tronix forklift scale makes it possible to lift, weigh, move and record a load in one operation. The ability to accurately weigh materials while in transit increases productivity by eliminating the need to travel to a floor scale, wait for access and unload the consignment to weigh it. Data is transmitted to a colour, touch-screen indicator, where it is stored while the rest of the information is collected.
The Revnue Protection system pairs the weight reading from the forklift system with measurements captured by the digital dimensioning tape. An inbuilt barcode scanner can be used to capture the consignment ID, customer details and routing data, which is transmitted wirelessly into the weight indicator that sits on the forklift truck. This customer and dimensional data is then processed along with weight data to calculate the volumetric weight of the consignment. This process can take place while the item is still sitting on the forklift forks, reducing the number of touch-points and streamlining processes further.
