“On-site weighing with the Conweigh system just makes sense.”
The Conweigh team was a real life saver when we initially contacted them. I needed containers weighed urgently to make a late night cut off. I made a call to them after hours and they were able to come straight to us with their weighing equipment to get our boxes weighed and on the road to the port. Without this service, we would have missed cut off for these boxes. This was when we realised on-site weighing with the Conweigh system just makes sense.
We have no time restrictions to obtain the VGM.
We often have last minute bookings that have a 12-noon pickup and cut off at 3 pm. With the Conweigh system, we can service these bookings as we are not having to queue at weighbridges to obtain both the tare and then container weight. We just take the container via our yard, weigh it and go. The VGM being emailed through means we don’t have to chase up weigh slips from drivers.
Without the Conweigh equipment on site, it is very difficult to arrange last minute bookings.
We experienced the benefits straight away. Being able to weigh when it suit us make life a lot easier. We were using local weighbridges which close at 4 pm, but with weighing equipment on site, we are able to weigh in the evenings in order to make late night cut-offs.
We are no longer reliant on other people or businesses to meet our customer’s needs.
We can efficiently provide an end to end service with our own equipment and own staff. We are no longer having to make a trip down to the weighbridge to get weigh slip, just to then bring the container back to our yard until it is time to take the container to the port. This means we are not paying for unnecessary driver time and travel costs.
What would you say to someone looking to integrate the Conweigh container weighing system into their business operations?
Do it. Having SOLAS-complaint on site weighing makes things much easier and cost effective. No taring or additional travel is required to obtain the weight, which frees up resources. Weighing whenever we like takes a lot of the stress out of tight time frames.
