Safety is, and always has been, a paramount component of transport and logistics around the world.  For the companies within the sector, the safety of their drivers is the most important aspect.  

The global transport industry and governing bodies are investing a conservative effort in reducing transport- related accidents associated with mass management and overloading; which includes the likes of buses, trucks and commercial vehicles. With safety top of mind enforcement agencies are now routinely stopping and checking more transport vehicles than they ever have before, to ensure that transport vehicles are complying. 

Of course, this means that all transport companies have implemented corrective measures to ensure commercial vehicles and trucks are being loaded within axle and gross vehicle tolerances. 

Weighing the axles of your trucks and commercial vehicles before they leave your site ensures that your business stays within the law, while also maximising fleet and driver safety. This is why it is so incredibly important that when you are choosing truck scales, you are selecting the correct truck scale for your business needs.
