Scales and Weighing Equipment for Ports and Sea Freight

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.
