Tech firm offers Solas weighing solution

[ March 1, 2016   //   ]

Integrated weighing system specialist RAVAS says that its forklift-mounted iForks system and associated app can provide data in line with the new Solas method 2 requirements. With iForks on the forklift, every pallet lifted is immediately weighed, without taking the goods out of the process. Total weight in the container can then be easily computed and communicated with all supply chain stakeholders, including the shipping company.

The Solas App can be installed on a PDA, iPad or iPhone. After identifying the container by its number and registering its tare weight, the App allows the user to identify individual pallets or shipments and register their weight. Total container weight is computed and registered on the PDA, and can be downloaded to a PC via USB cable as a CSV file. If the App is used on an iPad or iPhone, the information can be e-mailed to the shipping company straight from the App.
