How to Avoid Trucking Reweigh Charges

Posted by Marketing Admin on Jun 4th 2019

Warehouse Equipment's Prime Scales Umbrella Package is ideal for industrial or shipping use. This package comes with a 48"x 48" (or other sizes at your option) National Type Evaluation Program (NTEP) Approved Floor Scale, PS-IN202 NTEP Approved Indicator, PS-45 Label Printer and Calibration Certification. Scales and other weighing equipment that are NTEP Approved have been tested and evaluated to ensure that they meet all government standards and requirements.  The label printer, included in our Umbrella Package, enables your workers to increase their productivity by simply weighing the pallet, printing the ticket and peeling off the sticker to apply to pallets and/or shipping documents.  Weight capacity is as high as 10,000 lbs. and it is accurate to 1 lb.

PRIME SCALES UMBRELLA PACKAGE – The ultimate solution to protect you from freight Reweigh Charges.

Occasionally, if you ship your products via various trucking companies, you may receive letters from them stating that the weights of your pallets are more than the ones indicated on your paperwork.  As a result, they will send you a bill for the extra payment that they determine you owe them.  This is called a “Reweigh Charge.”

Reweigh Charges are sometimes unfair, even conspiratorial, especially when you don’t have a scale to check the weight yourself.  When you receive Reweigh Charges, you can dispute them claiming the weight on your paperwork is correct.  But how? 

The Prime Scales Umbrella Package is your "Tool Kit."  It includes a floor scale, a label printer and calibration certification, designed for those of you looking to dispute Reweigh Charges to avoid extra shipping costs.

Best of all, we are Certified Agents, so we are eligible to issue calibration certification.
