Dedicated Load Optimisation for Bulk Haulage
BulkWeigh systems are engineered to meet the unique demands of bulk haulage. A market-leading vehicle-mounted solution, BulkWeigh delivers robust, reliable, high accuracy overload protection and payload optimisation for tipper trucks and truck trailers.
With more than 100,000 installations worldwide, VPG Onboard Weighing’s BulkWeigh systems are trusted by drivers, owners and fleet managers to boost efficiency, maximise profits and improve safety levels across all bulk haulage operations.
Rugged On-Vehicle Weighing
BulkWeigh 1155 and BulkWeigh 1300 are specifically engineered on-board weighing systems for bulk tipping rigid, semi-trailer and drawbar vehicles. The durable BulkWeigh systems are designed for high accuracy weighing in rough environments utilizing four load cells mounted to the vehicle, achieving impressive accuracies of 1.0% or better.
Bulk haulage operators cannot afford slips in load monitoring accuracy, whatever the loading or road conditions. Our two BulkWeigh products, BulkWeigh 1155 and BulkWeigh 1300, are designed to perform consistently even in the toughest environments.
With a rugged, durable build and waterproofed to marine industry standards, BulkWeigh systems make use of four vehicle-mounted load cells, achieving exceptional weighing accuracies of 1.0% FSD or better in all conditions. Specially engineered for bulk tipping rigid, semi-trailer and drawbar vehicles ranging from 17 to 50 tonnes GVW, BulkWeigh is the first choice onboard weighing solution for bulk transport applications
Feature-Rich, Flexible and Full of Benefits
BulkWeigh systems monitor GVW, net payload weight, axle weights, vehicle tipping or body lifting threats as standard. A combination of visual data feeds, alerts and audible alarms ensure operators always have the full picture during loading, unloading and transport, helping to raise safety standards and guarantee compliance.
The BulkWeigh 1155 digital indicator is suitable for DIN radio, dash or trailer chassis mounting. The 1300 system comes with a flexible dash mount indicator that features a colour touch screen, advanced tipping stability controls and support for up to three CCTV cameras for rearview and blind-spot monitoring. Optional remote displays, printers and external sounders are also available.
Displays individual axle weights in real time, providing the data needed to ensure even load distribution and avoid the risk of exceeding axle load limits.
An award-winning stability feature included with all BulkWeigh systems as standard, TipWatch guards against unsafe tipping caused by uneven ground or uneven load distribution. A highly accurate inclinometer located in the system junction box continuously monitors the level of the ground and angle of the chassis or body, combining this with load distribution data and sending a feed to the digital indicator. If a side-to-side slope of more than 3% is detected or the load is more than 40% off centre, an alarm is activated.
Alerts the driver if the tipper body is raised via an audible alarm and on-screen message.
When a trailer is swapped, the BulkWeigh unit on the tractor automatically identifies the corresponding VPG Onboard Weighing system, so there is no need to recalibrate - making switchovers fast and efficient.
Both BulkWeigh systems come with two years full warranty, including parts and labour.

VPG Connect - Flexible Oversight
A frequent complaint we have heard from bulk haulage professionals over the years is that having displays mounted in the cab only is impractical while on site and, during tipping, potentially dangerous.
In response to these concerns and expanding on our 511 FreeWeigh display option, our 1155 BulkWeigh system is compatible with our VPG Connect solution, which sends data to mobile devices via WiFi. This allows operators to monitor data feeds on a smartphone or tablet safely away from the vehicle. VPG Connect also serves as a telematics solution, supporting real-time tracking of vehicle movements, time management, weight readings and compliance across a fleet.
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.
