Daltons has banished irregularities in weight measurements from moving away from traditional scales methods. “It has saved us lots of time and money. Most products’ weight to volume ratio alters regularly depending on rainfall. One cubic metre of dry sand weighs less than one cubic metre of washed sand. In reverse, that means a 30 tonne load of wet product will be less volume (m³) than a 30 tonne load of dry product. A load scanner removes this differential as you are only paying for the cubic metres purchased.”
“I would recommend a Loadscan scanner without hesitation. It removes all doubt for both the seller and purchaser and reduces workload related to queries about load size. Furthermore, it will pay for itself in half the time you may expect. The software that comes with it is essential as it produces information for management accounting purposes in minutes — as opposed to what would normally take days to prepare, and it is far more accurate.”
Loadscan’s LVS system utilises laser scanning and RFID technologies combined with software that creates 3D model images of trucks to measure the exact volume of the material loaded in a truck or trailer bin.
