Forklift truck scales increase revenue by 1.5% each month

The instant legal-for-trade weighment of each load, provided by the Avery Weigh-Tronix Forklift Truck Scales, enables the customer to collect an additional 1.5% revenue per
month. For most of their terminals, a scale pays for itself during the first 30 days of use and every dollar collected after that is pure profit. The company is currently in the
process of outfitting all terminals with Avery Weigh-Tronix legal-for-trade Forklift Truck Scales. In addition to ensuring accurate billing, the scales’ accurate weight verification enables dock workers to load the trucks evenly and legally, which avoids overload fines, excessive wear on the vehicle, and unsafe operation.

Avery Weigh-Tronix Legal-for-Trade Forklift Truck Scales transform ordinary lift trucks into mobile scales that deliver instant legal-for-trade weight verification of each load upon pick-up. They are designed for industrial use, the field-serviceable scales feature solid steel Weigh Bar® weight sensors, a rugged electronic indicator, and an epoxy-painted scale carriage frame. The proven Weigh Bar technology connects the front and back scale elements, eliminating flexures, and reducing maintenance costs.
