With the upcoming SOLAS regulations for VGM fast approaching, Konecranes Lift Trucks have announced their new static container weighing system. The system boasts a container gross mass accuracy of +-1 percent.

Lars Fredin, Senior Vice-President and Head of Konecranes business unit Lift Trucks, says, “We find it extremely important to develop our products with future needs in mind and to always be on our toes.” The release of this system is coming just in time for the start of the systematic container gross mass verification from July 1, 2016.

Konecranes fully embedded weighing solutions enable seamless interchange of data with the customer’s TOS/TMS or ERP system through a secure, cloud-based service. Data captured includes the container’s verified gross mass, the container ID, the date and timestamp as well as the person accountable for the weight verification.
