Setting the Legal-for-Trade Standard

Invoicing from the cab immediately at the point of collection can help transport and haulage firms achieve significant efficiency gains. But with the strict standards of accuracy, reliability and repeatability that pay-by-weight systems must meet to be certified legal for trade, there remain relatively few authorised products available.

One product that is fully trade approved is VPG Onboard Weighing’s LFT1500 system. Offering peerless accuracy in real time weighing, LFT1500 is a perfect solution for companies looking to improve financial management with more streamlined and dynamic billing practices.

Approved Trade Invoicing From the Cab

Any logistics business that relies on charging by weight depends on the certified accuracy of their on-vehicle weighing system. The LTF1500 system is accurate to 20 kg in 15,000 kg and is approved to OIML R76, the international standard that governs the accuracy of non-automatic weighing equipment.

From waste and recycling to bulk haulage, LFT1500 provides a reliable pay-by-weight solution suitable for refuse vehicles, tankers, cement trucks, tipping trucks, hook loaders, skip loaders and more.

The LFT1500 system comprises four, six or eight load cells that are mounted between the chassis and the body, with a maximum load capacity of 22,000kg per cell. A unique ‘flexible’ mounting bracket works in combination with an inclinometer on the chassis to provide tilt compensation up to 10 degrees, key to delivering the LFT1500’s best-in-market weighing accuracy

The 1800 in-cab indicator displays large, easy-to-read characters and supports run totals for multiple collections/deliveries, custom print headers and external telematics integration as standard, plus options including a data storage device, USB module, a choice of printers and a barcode scanner.

LFT1500 Product Sheet

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.
