Don't Leave Money on the Dock! SkidWeigh Improves Shipping Department

One of the most frequent calls we receive is from small companies looking to get a handle on the weight of out going shipments. Many small companies, 9 lift trucks or less, do not have practical means of weighing outgoing product accurately.
Most shipping departments rely on estimates when filling out transport carrier requirements. The result, when the product is check weighed by the carrier back at the hub, charge backs are put to the account creating variances in transport budgets. Equally as important but less understood are when outgoing shipments are understated and the result is overpaying the carrier. Those companies looking for certainty almost always arrive at on-board lift truck scales to boost accuracy in their shipping department.

Even small companies compete for vehicle space and time with regards to staging outgoing product. For this reason alone floor scales are often bypassed out of convenience. However, utilizing a SkidWeigh ED3/4-GSS (General Shipping System) allows you to weigh loads at point of loading with no additional travel.

Making it easy for the operator, the system can utilize Bluetooth barcode scanners for to pair waybill numbers with weight and dimension measurements.
