Scales and Weighing Equipment for Warehousing, Distribution and Logistics
With logistics, warehousing and distribution operations becoming increasingly complex and margins tighter than ever, it is important to ensure that your business is operating efficiently. Weight data can play a vital role, from ensuring that incoming and outgoing goods are invoiced correctly and helping to manage inventory, to avoiding the financial and health & safety risks associated with overloading.
Not only does weight data prove legislative compliance with safety and vehicle operation law, it can also improve your bottom line. The right weighing solution will seamlessly slot into your operation and integrate with your WMS and stock management systems to provide real-time verification of incoming goods, pick accuracy and vehicle loading.
Discover how we can help you to manage pick accuracy and speed, verify incoming goods, operate safely, increase customer satisfaction and profits.

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.View applicable products
We understand that keeping customers and their baggage moving at pace is a challenge – and that adding unnecessary handling steps into your finely tuned operation is the last thing you need.
When it comes to baggage weighing and handling, process efficiency can have a major impact on costs and services, not to mention customer satisfaction.
While knowing the weight of cargo is important when it comes to the health and safety of the aircraft, measuring individual bag weights is crucial for the manual baggage handling process for your ground crew.
We’ve designed a range of weighing solutions to help increase your operation’s efficiency without complicating your existing processes.View applicable products
Properly managing inventory and billing from distribution hubs depends upon documenting and weighing both inbound and outbound freight. The high cost of fuel and the need to meet the demands of overloading legislation means that bulk carriers have to balance the need to maximise payload while minimising the likelihood of unsafe loading.
In addition, we understand that implementing a picking and packing process that slows down picking operations is absolutely not an option. Avery Weigh-Tronix offers a mobile picking solution which aims to drastically improve picking accuracy at the point of pick.View applicable products
The fast-paced nature at freight forwarding hubs puts pressure on operators to unload freight from inbound vehicles as quickly as possible. Consignments are scanned as they are unloaded from the inbound vehicles and then moved elsewhere within the hub to be weighed and dimensioned. However, this approach leads to bottlenecks further down the process, constricting efficiencies and causing delays.
The Fast Freight Unloading Solution from Avery Weigh-Tronix combines mobile weighing and dimensioning technology into your existing processes, without adding additional steps or losing valuable time.
The solution allows operators to scan, weigh and dimension freight as it is being unloaded from the vehicle and moved through the hub; significantly reducing vehicle unloading time and removing bottlenecks later in the process.
Operators can quickly and easily capture the weight and dimensions of freight, and automatically transfer the data to the hub management system – removing the potential errors associated with manual data input.View applicable products

With around 55% of the costs of warehouse operation typically involved in picking and packing, it is vital that the process is as efficient as possible.
Employing appropriate weighing technology in warehouse environments can improve shipping and billing accuracy and enhance overall workflow productivity. Minimising the movement of product, keeping a better track of inventory and reducing the need to rework packages all has a direct impact on your bottom line.View applicable products
The logistics industry is undergoing significant change. The growth of on-line shopping and consumer focus on value-for-money has seen an increase in international shipping of goods.
Fleet sizes are changing, port centric logistics and mega port hub developments are more commonplace. This, coupled with rises in commodity, fuel and energy prices, as well as legislation relating to congestion and the environment, is all having a significant impact on costs.
As well as the more obvious need to weigh goods that are being transported by sea, it is also vital that goods being brought into ports by road and rail are accurately weighed. Rail and vehicle weighing scales and systems from Avery Weigh-Tronix provide the data required to ensure that vehicles are not overloaded and goods are charged correctly.
With updated SOLAS regulations now in force, ensuring sea freight loading is compliant with legislation has never been more critical for the supply chain.View applicable products
Whether shipping goods by road, air or sea, having accurate weight and dimension data is vital to charging correctly and protecting profitability. The Express Freight Revenue Protection solution from Avery Weigh-Tronix offers a unique and effective way of capturing freight dimensions and weight while minimising manual capture and input. As the first mobile weighing and dimensioning solution on the market, it provides significant time and cost saving versus manual alternatives.View applicable products
The Surcharge Protection Solution from Avery Weigh-Tronix combines mobile weighing and dimensioning technology into the existing shipping process, without adding additional steps or losing valuable time.
The solution allows shippers to easily weigh and dimension 100% of consignments before they are shipped, ensuring the correct weight and dimension data is provided to the carrier, removing the possibility of surcharges from under declarations.
Where shippers are providing their own transportation for goods, the Surcharge Protection Solution can be used for load planning, as well as ensuring vehicle axle weights are compliant with HSE and DVSA road legislation.View applicable products
Within any efficient warehousing and distribution process, we understand that speed is of the essence – but not at the expense of accuracy. Weight data, if captured as part of your normal processes can verify and provide checks on accuracy so that they have efficient and accurate processes..
In addition, we understand that implementing a picking and packing process that slows down picking operations is absolutely not an option. Avery Weigh-Tronix offers a mobile picking solution which aims to drastically improve picking accuracy at the point of pick.
Avery Weigh-Tronix weighing solutions are all designed to improve accuracy and speed, while slotting into your existing process and systems.View applicable products
