VANS AND LIGHT TRUCKS
Vans and light trucks are the most common type of commercial vehicle on our roads. They play a critical role in the movement of goods and equipment in industries ranging from logistics to construction, utilities to waste management and many more. And as any business running a fleet of light commercial vehicles (LCVs) knows, for reasons of safety, compliance, efficiency and profitability, effective load management matters.
VPG Onboard Weighing offers a full range of solutions for every van type - for classes ranging from 2.5 to 7.5 tonnes, different body types, for all steel, steel and air or all air suspensions. We also know just how common it is for LCVs to be customised for different purposes, such as adding refrigeration units or specialist equipment needed in sectors like energy and other utilities, and offer flexible on-vehicle solutions which account for such changes in GVW to always guarantee maximum accuracy.
Optimise Your Payload While Staying Legal
Van operators always have to tread a fine line when it comes to payloads. On the one hand, they want to use legal load limits to their fullest extent, as dead space in the vehicle translates to more journeys required and eats into margins. On the other hand, push those limits too far and you risk fines for safety breaches.
VPG Onboard Weighing solutions are designed to help LCV operators use their payload limits widely. With our revolutionary inclinometer-based load optimisation systems providing pinpoint accuracy in on-vehicle weighing, businesses can maximise every load to the fullest while still staying on the right side of the line on safety and compliance. Our systems are also lightweight and easy to retrofit, while also being suitable for OEMs to incorporate into vehicle designs from scratch.
Ease of Ownership | Fast ROI
At VPG Onboard Weighing, we design our LCV weighing systems to add value for all personnel involved in running and maintaining a fleet. The bottom line is that simple, reliable solutions that benefit everyone boost performance and increase profitability.
For drivers and operators, our onboard weighing systems are fitted with screens that deliver clear, easy to understand graphics as well as audible alarms so they are always fully informed about what is happening during loading and unloading.
For fleet managers, our load optimisation and telematics systems provide peace of mind in terms of safety and compliance, they help to cut maintenance and insurance costs by reducing wear and tear, and the data they provide can be used for performance gains.
For maintenance engineers, we design our systems for straightforward fit-and-forget installation, with no need for further recalibration, while load optimisation again reduces impact on the vehicle and therefore lengthens repair and service cycles.
VanWeigh is our flagship on-vehicle overload protection / load optimisation solution for light commercial vehicles. Suitable for dual-axle vans weighing up to 7.5 tonnes, VanWeigh works with all suspension types and offers supreme simplicity in installation, operation and maintenance. Built around our patented inclinometer technology, it delivers weighing accuracy to better than ±2.5% (90–100% of GVW).
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.
