BlueSky weighs while loading

Using C-Legs to weigh the container during loading
A meat products exporter in New Zealand is using the BISON C-Legs system to ensure containers are not loaded over the 44,000 lb limit for US truck transport.

New Zealand-based meat products supplier BlueSky Meats is using the C-Legs system to weigh boxes of powdered bone meal for export to the US during the loading process. 

The company loads up to three 20ft containers per week and each has to be loaded to no more than 19,958kg (44,000 lb) to meet US highway regulations.

To allow BlueSky to maximise each load it purchased the BISON C-Legs system, which can weigh a container on a chassis as it as loaded. Loading is stopped at 19,900kg, the doors closed and a VGM created. Bison estimates this will bring down shipping costs by 10% over a year as the company is now shipping more bone meal in fewer containers. 

Previously BlueSky would have had to contract a local trucker to make the 60km round trip to the nearest weigh bridge to have the container weighed. "Now the plant operator attaches the scales to the container when it is partly loaded and uses the wireless Master Display to monitor the payload in real time. At 19,900 kg, the blower is stopped and the doors are sealed, with the confidence that the container is good to go to the Port. With the BISON VGM App, the container VGM is also captured and emailed from the rendering plant to BlueSky’s logistics team," Bison stated.
