RAVAS iForks and App provide SOLAS container weights

May 12, 2016

RAVAS has come up with a solution to the problem of supplying a VGM to the shipping line when the new regulations come into force in July 2016. iForks and the RAVAS SOLAS App allows items to be weighed as they are loaded into the container and the VGM sent straight to the shipping company.  

iForks can be installed on any counterbalanced or reach truck in a matter of minutes.  With iForks on the truck, every load lifted is immediately weighed and the weight displayed in the cabin. Extended scale functions include registering of ID codes with every weight recorded.   

The 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, communicated by iForks. 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.
