The forestry sector relies on logging trucks to move timber over short and large distances. However, moving large, heavy trunks in challenging forest situations is far from simple, even if it merely involves transferring timber from the site of felling to storage. To make sure cargoes are secure and secure on rough terrain as well as on the road, fleet managers and operators rely on precise on-vehicle weighing. On-vehicle load monitoring technology has long been at the forefront thanks to VPG Onboard Weighing. For logging trucks and their operators, we provide a range of solutions, from sheer overload protection systems that ensure loads don’t go above safe and legal limits to legal-for-trade certified systems for accurate billing while the truck is in operation.
How heavy a piece of lumber depends on a number of factors, including the kind of tree, its age, growing circumstances, humidity, degree of drying, and many more. As a result, there is always a ʀɪsᴋ of overloading. Additionally, because pick-up locations are frequently inaccessible, on-vehicle monitoring is crucial to prevent loads from being ᴅᴀɴɢᴇʀᴏᴜsly hauled back to weighing regions beyond the capabilities of the vehicle.
By ensuring that limitations are used to the fullest extent, minimizing the number of trips, boosting profitability, and lowering carbon impact, accurate on-vehicle weighing also helps with efficiency optimization. VPG Onboard Weighing offers systems that manage both overload avoidance and payload optimization. All truck types utilized in the logging industry—rigid, articulated, and trailers—are eligible for our high accuracy load-cell-based solutions and special proprietary inclinometer-based systems.
