Overload Protection - Load Optimisation

The highly competitive nature of the logistics sector makes payload maximisation a must for all operators. Profitability depends on it. But on the flipside, there is equal need to ensure that every load is safe, secure and compliant with the law.

At VPG Onboard Weighing, we have developed products that offer load optimisation and overload protection as part of the same solution. With products designed for the full range of transportation vehicles - from light commercial vans to multi-axle trucks to multi-trailer road trains - our products help operators get the most out of every payload without putting their drivers, their vehicles or their reputation at risk.

Load Optimisation | Maximising Efficiency

With margins for transportation and logistics companies under constant squeeze, we understand that the efficiency of every journey and every delivery matters. That is why load optimisation technology has come to the fore.

VPG Onboard Weighing solutions empower operators to monitor net and gross weight in real time, helping to optimise fuel consumption for reduced cost and an improved carbon footprint by fewer trips and better yields. At the same time, our technology analyses load distribution across individual axes, assure every payload can hit the maximum safe and legal limit.

Overload Protection | Safe and Legal

With pressure on to get the most out of every delivery, there is always the temptation for logistics operators to push loads too far. But even marginal overloading risks damaging your vehicles, falling foul of the law and putting drivers and other road users at risk.

Our patented GVW and individual axle load monitoring technology puts drivers and fleet managers in full control so they know vehicles are always loaded within their safe legal limits. As well as bolstering health and safety and avoiding fines, overload protection carries an important cost benefit. Reduced wear and tear lowers the cost of vehicle ownership, while the ability to evidence compliance and a strong safety record also leads to reduced insurance costs.


Flexible OEM Solutions

Our overload protection and load optimisation systems come ready-approved by body builders and converters worldwide. They are also approved for aftermarket by a major vehicle manufacturer – with more to come.

The flexible compatibility of our products goes beyond physical installation. We have developed the system architecture of our software and hardware to allow for easy integration with existing vehicle communication and electronics, meaning, for example, that data can be monitored using the give single terminal, making separate indicators obsolete.


VanWeigh units are worth their weight in gold!

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.
