Rail weighing to keep you on track

Train and rail weighing is crucial in virtually every aspect of rail operation, from monitoring product deliveries to avoiding overloading penalties. Some of the reasons for weighing railway trucks and carriages include: 

  • To invoice clients for the amount of product shipped
  • To ensure your shipper isn’t overcharging
  • To determine the weight of cars and wagons to collect freight revenue from shippers
  • To avoid overloading, which can damage cars, wagons and rail infrastructure, and avoid eccentric loading, which can lead to derailments
  • For asset management to minimize high impact loads, especially at track discontinuities like track joints, turnouts and crossings

Our rail scales and systems are sold under the established Railweight brand, a member of the Avery Weigh-Tronix group.
