Shipping weights

Prevent overloads and unnecessary costs

Every company that ships goods needs to know the weight of these goods as accurately as possible. The sender is required by law to declare the correct weight on the shipping documents. Overloads and incorrect declaration can cause a lot of trouble. Determining shipping weights is probably the most common use of a hand pallet truck scale. It’s in the shipping department where time can be saved by weighing mobile. Middle and smaller sized companies seldom handle large numbers of pallets per day. However, efficient weighing in the shipping department offers other advantages as well. Shipping weights can be printed on a ticket, together with an order number and date and time.
