Payload Maximization • Accuracy • Reliability • Safety • Efficiency

Bulk haulage and heavy goods transportation play a vital role in the construction industry. Typically involving the movement of heavyweight materials and heavy plant equipment, construction logistics also has to deal with rugged environments where safety is a primary concern.

VPG Onboard Weighing has been a market leader in the sector for several decades. All of our products are designed for accuracy, reliability and convenience, and are suitable for most vehicle types used on any construction site. Whether for the transportation of materials or machinery, our solutions help operators stay safe and legal by avoiding the risk of dangerous loads, while at the same time maximising payload efficiency and profitability and even driving down your carbon footprint.

One-Stop Solution for All Vehicle Types

Construction industry logistics involves many different vehicle types - tippers, dumpers, flatbed trucks, heavy plant transporters, concrete mixers and various types of loader. Whatever it is being moved around - sand, gravel, waste, chemicals or machinery - vehicles have to withstand high levels of wear and tear in tough conditions while maintaining reliability and accuracy.

VPG Onboard Weighing solutions cover it all. Systems built around our own patented inclinometer technology facilitating overload protection and load optimisation, with multiple alarm options. Our load cell-based products deliver approved legal-for-trade accuracy for multiple truck types, can prevent tipping and we also offer specialised systems for cement trucks and other construction-specific vehicles. Across all solutions, our focus is to provide clients with payload maximisation, enhanced efficiency and robust safety monitoring.

TipWatch - On-Site Safety

Construction sites and quarries can be tough environments to work in. Not only do transportation vehicles have to handle rugged materials, they also have to cope with uneven, muddy and wet surfaces. These environments are difficult to control 100%, and the risk of slipping or tipping during loading or unloading is ever-present.

With this in mind, VPG Onboard Weighing has made our award-winning TipWatch feature standard on all of our BulkWeigh systems. By monitoring ground level and axle weight distribution during loading and unloading, TipWeigh issues audio and visual alerts if it detects any risk of overbalancing. Customised setups can also automatically halt tippers in motion before a problem progresses.

VPG Connect - Remote Monitoring

Given the heightened safety concerns around the use of vehicles on construction sites, how data from on-vehicle monitoring equipment is accessed is an important consideration. Dash-mounted displays require drivers to be in the cab during loading or tipping, which for many operators nowadays means putting personnel at an unacceptable level of risk.

Thanks to our VPG Connect platform, all data and alerts from VPG Onboard Weighing 1155 systems can be accessed from a smartphone or tablet at a safe distance from the vehicle. VPG Connect communicates with mobile devices via WiFi and also acts as a remote telematics solution, sending a full range of data such as vehicle location, pick up and drop off times, weight measurements and any overload or stability alerts triggered to fleet managers.

VPG Connect

VPG Connect is a companion product to our BulkWeigh 1155 and TruckWeigh 1155 systems, providing direct data integration to mobile devices via WiFi. As well as allowing operators to monitor weighing feeds away from the cab on their smartphone or tablet. VPG Connect also serves as a telematics solution, providing robust and in-depth data communications to support fleet management and compliance.

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.
