The most accurate method of determining the volume of organic material on a truck is to use a 3D volume scanner. Volumetric scanning is also often faster and more cost effective than traditional weighing or counting systems. And it can account for compaction, settlement during transit, moisture retention, and characteristics of material hauled. Modern load volume scanning systems, like those provided by industry leader Loadscan, provide you with the full picture of your material movements, including 3D images and insightful data in real-time for every load.
