Avery Weigh-Tronix drives operational efficiencies with launch of next generation of Pallet Truck Scale


Avery Weigh-Tronix, the industrial weighing manufacturer, has extended its range of industrial weighing equipment with the introduction of the PTS2000S; the next generation of pallet truck scale which works as part of three innovative solutions designed to drive business efficiencies. 

The PTS2000S drives operational efficiencies by making in-motion weighing part of the natural process of moving goods within the organisation. Build features including high quality steel, polyurethane wheels and a shock and vibration resistant scale make it ideal for use in harsh operating environments. While wireless and Bluetooth connectivity allows for the instant transfer of weight data from the scale to the user’s back office system, avoiding manual data input.

The PTS2000S forms part of three innovative solutions available exclusively from Avery Weigh-Tronix. Each solution combines mobile weighing and data capture with digital dimensioning technology and integrated software to add value for businesses, without creating additional steps to existing processes;  

Revenue Protection Solution 

Designed to protect freight forwarders from under-declared shipping charges, the PTS2000S is used as part of the Revenue Protection Solution to take an in-motion weight reading as freight is moved through hubs - allowing freight forwarders to check 100% of freight without slowing down existing processes.

The Revenue Protection Solution is the only mobile weighing and dimensioning solution on the market with full Legal for Trade status, allowing freight forwarders to legally use the data as a basis for surcharging shippers if weight discrepancies are found. 

Surcharge Protection Solution

Businesses shipping goods via freight forwarders can avoid unbudgeted surcharges by using the PTS2000S as part of the Surcharge Protection Solution, to ensure accurate weight and dimension details are provided to freight forwarders before shipments are sent. 

By taking a weight reading as goods are moved to the dispatch area, shippers can weigh and dimension 100% of consignments before they are shipped, without adding additional steps to existing processes. 

Fast Freight Unloading Solution

Businesses receiving inbound consignments can drive vehicle unloading efficiencies by using the PTS2000S as part of the Fast Freight Unloading Solution to take an in-motion weight reading while freight is unloaded from vehicles.

By utilising in-motion weighing technology the vehicle unloading process becomes up to 55% quicker when compared to weighing freight in a stand-alone area. 

Paul Hines, Innovation Director at Avery Weigh-Tronix comments, “Many businesses today are looking for ways to efficiently gather and use data to drive operational efficiencies. Our next generation Pallet Truck Scale includes several innovative features requested by our customers and continues our legacy of delivering forward thinking, differentiated products. The introduction of the PTS2000S signifies a very exciting time for the industry as the built-in connectivity means we can now provide businesses with technology that captures and stores critical data without making changes to their existing processes.”
