Like any other modern, competitive industry, agriculture demands efficiency and precision. With the movement of agricultural produce and equipment - grain, crops, vegetables, animal fodder, plus machinery and supplies for the farm - effective, efficient logistics can boost margins by lowering costs and maximising the value of every payload.

VPG Onboard Weighing solutions allow agricultural businesses to monitor gross and net loads as well as weight distribution with peerless accuracy and reliability, in real time. Not only does this boost profitability by optimising volumes on every shipment, it also ensures compliance with legal weight limits, boosts safety, avoids unnecessary wear and tear on vehicles and reduces your carbon footprint.

All Vehicles Covered

Agriculture makes use of a wide variety of vehicle types, some of them customised for very specific uses. Blower and walking floor trailers, tankers, tippers, vans and more are all in common use transporting goods to and from farms and other rural businesses.

VPG Onboard Weighing provides solutions for every vehicle type and every function - overload protection, load optimisation, legal-for-trade approval. Whether it is products built around our own groundbreaking inclinometer technology or more conventional load cell-based monitoring equipment, you can always count on exceptional accuracy, reliability, resilience and repeatability plus value-added features like individual axle watch, tipping alarms, onboard cameras and telematics support.

TipWatch - Protecting You And Your People

Vehicles carrying goods to and from agricultural businesses are not always working in 100% controlled environments. Picking up or dropping off in fields, operating with or around heavy plant machinery and working in all weathers on sometimes muddy, wet, untreated surfaces all pose specific safety challenges.

One of the biggest concerns of haulage operators in these environments is the risk of vehicles slipping and/or tipping. With that in mind, we developed TipWatch, an award-winning feature which compares axle weight distribution with ground level and triggers audio and visual alerts if the vehicle is at risk of overbalancing during loading and unloading. The system can also be integrated directly with a vehicle’s tipper control system to halt operations automatically.


VPG Connect - Mobile Integration

Operators often complain that the placement of displays and monitors for onboard systems in cabs is impractical. It means drivers have to be inside the cab during loading or unloading to see data in real time or hear alerts clearly, which creates a safety risk.

To address those concerns, we developed VPG Connect, a mobile integration solution that connects our vehicle onboard weighing 1155 type systems to tablets and smartphones via WiFi. That means operators can get all the weighing data they need at a safe distance from the vehicle during loading and unloading, and need never miss a safety alert. VPG Connect also serves as a telematics solution, sending data back to fleet managers to assist with time and location tracking, compliance and safety monitoring and more.

VPG Connect

Sending live data from our BulkWeigh and TruckWeigh 1155 systems to any mobile device, VPG Connect is a solution for the modern work environment. Operating via WiFi, VPG Connect allows drivers to work at a safe distance from the vehicle during loading and unloading, without the risk of missing crucial load information or safety alerts. This remote connectivity also provides a telematics solution and can be used to relay fleet-wide data back to base.

VanWeigh units are worth their weight in gold!

Nick HatchettStores Supervisor, Booth Dispensers Ltd, UK

I have just ordered our fourth VanWeigh system in two years for our growing fleet of VW Crafters. VPG Onboard Weighing fitters are polite, courteous and well trained in their knowledge of the units being fitted. Vehicles are left clean, tidy and ready for work. 

The VanWeigh units themselves are worth their weight in gold. There is no fiddling about to add up weight, just load the vehicles and the unit does the rest. Drivers can see straight away if they need to alter their load to spread the weight.
