Weight plays a vital role in transportation. There are many reasons why commercial trucks need to be weighed, either by above ground 70 foot long truck scales or portable weighing systems. One of the most important reasons is safety. If a truck is overloaded, then it is a danger to the operator and to other drivers on the road it shares with others.
Another reason is profitability. Unknown or inaccurate weights can cost a company thousands of dollars in overweight fines, excessive vehicle maintenance costs, and inventory disruptions. When considering either a portable or in-ground tractor trailer scales for over the road transportation, there are many factors that must be carefully examined such as location, vehicle throughput, space constraints, data collection, and budget.

The wide range of portable tractor trailer scales and systems helps customers maintain compliance with legal weight restrictions, optimize payload to improve efficiency and safety, and save operating costs by tracking inbound and outbound shipments.

When using wheel load scales like the PT300, Intercomp recommends that an axle group (axles within 10 feet), be on the same plane. This means all axles in a group, including dual, triple and spread axles, should be at the same level as the axle on the pad, either supported by another scale pad or a solid object.
