Adding value to your investment.

Installing a mobile weighing system on a lift truck can do more than eliminate the costly bottlenecks and loss of productivity that result from using floor scales. They also add value to your operation in other ways.

For instance, an LTS Scale lift truck scale outfitted with a thermal barcode printer adds the ability to print barcode labels with weight and other customer-specific information, all from the cab of the lift truck.

Productivity adds up to profits.

To illustrate, let’s use as an example a medium size company with a fleet of six active lift trucks in operation each day. On average they complete 50 moves per forklift per day (@6/hour) that require weighment. By using the LTS Scale lift truck scale system, weighment can be completed within 3 minutes, much less than it takes to move the load to a typical floor scale location. That is daily labor savings of 15 hours (6 trucks x 50 weights x 3 minutes / 60 minutes = 15 hours), or two less lift trucks and personnel than currently used.

Assuming $30 per hour of fully loaded labor cost, annual cost savings of approximately $125,000 are possible ($30/hr x 2,080 hours x 2 people). In this scenario, purchasing 4 lift truck scales would result in a payback on investment of less than 3 months!

Small adjustments create new opportunities.

Change happens. How you adjust can shift your business and accelerate growth or leave you playing catch up. With a mobile weighing system, the lifting, weighing, counting, accumulating and transporting of a load is accomplished as a single efficient operation. Adding this technology to your operation not only makes sense, it can add up to dollars and cents.
