Load weight monitor for double-deckers


Transdek has developed a load weight monitor for double-deck trailers that measures the weight and distribution of product on both decks during the loading cycle to ensure that the payload is properly balanced for maximum stability.

It measures to within a one per cent tolerance, and also records and stores this data.

Mark Adams, managing director of Transdek, said: “Without knowing the distribution of payload on a double deck trailer, the vehicle may easily run within its maximum gross weight limit but with an excessive proportion of that payload on the upper deck, particularly in medium-density mixed grocery distribution operations.”
