Unfortunately, too many of these load bearing vehicles are overloaded to the point of putting them (and other drivers) at risk. Overloading is a significant problem. Overweight vehicles have a negative impact on road safety, road condition, environment and fair competition.
On-board weighing systems help to facilitate load management control and reduce the cost of the administration compared to other forms of truck scales. Simply put, on-board weighing systems offer an effective and efficient weighing solution to keep freight and transport vehicles within legal highway limits. These on-board scales also offer a number of other advantages for these types of companies.
