What is the best scale to buy for shipping?

So you're in the market for a shipping scale? First, lets evaluate what kind of shipping you will be doing. If you're operating a fulfillment warehouse or shipping a lot of packages everyday then you really need to choose a reliable shipping scale, such as the Mettler Toledo BC60.

Postal Scale?

Next, we need to address the term postal scales. A postal scale typically is something you would use to weigh everything from letters to lightweight boxes that ship via USPS or dropped off at your local post office. If you do most of your shipping via USPS or the post office, then you probably need to visit our postal scales page to see what is the best postal scale, since this particular page that you are currently on focuses mostly on UPS shipping scales.

As mentioned above, shipping scales are generally not the same as postal scales. When you see the term "postal" those scales are usually designed to weigh in ounces and are often smaller.

When we refer to a shipping scale, we often are referring to a scale that has a fairly large weighing platform and nice accuracy. One other key feature to consider is choosing a shipping scale that can interface with your computer software. In our case, we use UPS Worldship and the BC60 can send the weight data into that program via the USB cable to your computer. It does save you a few seconds of time and eliminates you from having to manually type the weight into the computer. The BC60 boasts of being compatible with both UPS and FedEx standard computer software.

What kind of scale does ups use? Well, they likely use everything from cargo scales, floor scales, and bench scales among others. But most customers typically use a counter top scale that is somewhere around 12" x 14" in size and has a 150 pound weighing capacity. They also typically have a backlit LCD display on the front that is easy to read. These scales also typically plug into your computer via a USB cable and make weighing boxes a little easier.
