The Revenue Protection Solution offers a unique, integrated method of weighing, dimensioning and data capture technology.
Digital dimensioning and data capture technology are combined with a range of weighing options, allowing you to revenue protect 100% of freight without any major changes to your existing process.
Data capture on the move
Both the Avery Weigh-Tronix forklift truck scale and pallet truck scale make it possible to lift, weigh, measure, move and record consignment weights as part of the natural flow through the hub. The ability to accurately weigh and measure materials inprocess means that 100% of freight can be checked, with no standing time.
Features & benefits of revenue protection
- Generate additional income through customer surcharges on under-declared consignments
- Quickly and accurately weigh and dimension 100% of consignments, instead of selectively identifying by size or volume
- Provide a robust audit trail to defend customer surcharges
- Remove freight processing bottlenecks typically caused by a single point of weighing and dimensioning
- Eliminate human error by removing the need to manually record weights and dimensions and re-enter into a PC or terminal
- Works seamlessly as part of your existing process
- The only trade approved mobile weighing and dimensioning system on the market
Innovative digital dimensioning
The Cubetape® digital dimensioning tool minimises human-error and replaces manual measuring systems. The inbuilt barcode scanner captures the consignment details which are transmitted wirelessly to the weighing equipment. The dimensional data is then processed along with weight data to calculate the volumetric weight of the consignment. This process can take place while the consignment is still sitting on the weighing equipment, reducing the number of touchpoints and streamlining the revenue protection process further.
Recover lost revenue through a robust audit trail
Software within the Revenue Protection Solution integrates with back office systems to wirelessly transfer the weight and dimension data to the hub management system - avoiding manual data input, which saves time and eliminates errors. This data is then cross-referenced against the weight and dimensions declared by the shipper to ensure there are no discrepancies. In the event of an under declared consignment, the Revenue Protection Solution provides a verified audit trail to support surcharges raised to the shipper.
Static weighing solutions
For freight forwarders who would prefer a central location for revenue protection, or require a higher capacity scale for heavier consignments, an Avery Weigh-Tronix floor scale can be used as part of the Revenue Protection Solution.
Robust. Accurate. Trade Approved
Whether you choose a forklift truck scale, pallet truck scale or floor scale as part of your new Revenue Protection Solution, the weighing equipment is incredibly robust and has been designed to withstand heavy industrial usage, overloads and the general abuse of a busy freight-handling environment.
With more than 20 years of engineering development, plus extensive field testing, all Avery Weigh-Tronix weighing solutions consistently deliver reliable, fast and accurate weight readings, even in the harshest of environments.
About trade approval for revenue protection
For freight forwarders charging customers for under declared shipping costs, it is a legal requirement that the weighing equipment used is verified as ‘Legal for Trade’.
As well as meeting legal requirements, Legal for Trade approval proves that your equipment can carry out repeatable weighing of goods and can provide accurate and auditable records.
In the case of a customer challenging a surcharge for under-declaration, using a measuring device that is not certified as Legal for Trade would mean the absence of an audit trail and almost certainly no evidence to support the surcharge in question.
The Revenue Protection Solution has full Legal for Trade status, and therefore has the required verification to apply customer surcharges.
