Loadtech offers customers a computerised on-board weighing system that allows the driver to control the weight being added during the loading process to ensure profitable loads, thus avoiding over or under-loading.
This system is an essential tool for timber transporters as it means the truck can be loaded correctly, first time, every time.
“There is a window of opportunity while the truck is being loaded when you can ensure that it is loaded correctly,” explains Neels Botes of Loadtech. “Once the truck has moved off the loading zone it is unlikely to return for load adjustment.”
How do the benefits filter down to the forestry operation, clients or suppliers?
“The transport operator can be sure that the truck will not be overloaded, thus avoiding costly penalties, and that the load that is delivered is all present and correct,” said Neels.
Loadtech is a leader in the supply of OnBoard weighing equipment and is continually developing new and better products to meet the requirements of the trucking industry. It offers a wide range of off-the-shelf products as well as fully customised solutions.
Loadtech products are reliable, durable and accurate, and are supported by well-equipped teams based at Loadtech workshops in Centurion and at Park Rynie on the South Coast of KZN.
