Some fleets need more than just the standard overload protection; they actually need to know more accurately what they are carrying.

In many cases this is simply for audit reasons, but often it is also for assisting in important commercial decisions.

For instance, how is a waste collection business supposed to work out what rate band a customer fall into if they have no idea of the amount of waste they collect?

More accurate systems tend to employ load cells mounted between the body and the chassis of the vehicle.

This brings an added advantage of being more robust for vehicles used across difficult terrain, such as landfill or building sites.

These systems tend to have more in the way of control with additional features, such as USB drives for data output, or packing control to ensure an RCV doesn’t over pack its load.
