We recently had a food production and distribution customer approach us with an enquiry to assist them with their Chain of Responsibility (CoR) and Mass Management compliance.
They were in need of a solution that was space efficient and portable, given their limited site space, that can provide them accurate and reliable weight readings for their outbound trucks, ensuring they are compliant with Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL). Being CoR compliant is a necessity for operations that are involved in the supply chain, as CoR breaches can result in fines and potential imprisonment.
We were all too happy to have this conversation, as we have available the ideal solution for the problems of not breaching CoR and on a site that is limited on space: enter the Low Profile Axle Weigher (LPAX), manufactured right here in Australia by Diverseco.
This particular LPAX project had with it the installation of a Driver Control Station (DCS). With the integrated (with the LPAX) DCS the customer can export all the necessary weighing data to an un-manned DCS that will automatically provide you a ticket with the information. Additionally, these systems can integrate into an existing ERP to provide enhanced Chain of Responsibility accountability.
The DCS was then coupled with an Aurora 45 SL Remote Display, providing weighing confirmation (green for completed weighing transaction) and digitised weight readings for the driver. The system as a whole provides our customer with accurate weight readings in a low-profile and portable manner, and does not require an on-site operator to complete the weighing transaction as between the LPAX, the DCS, and the remote display, these transactions are largely automated and easily completed by the drivers themselves.
