How to ensure optimal load weight for timber transports

Optimal load weight is vital for transport entrepreneurs, but often challenging to put into practice.

Entrepreneurs in the forestry sector must commit to legal and as precise load sizes as possible. However, the assessment of load size is influenced by many things, such as challenging environmental conditions, snow and ice, natural variation in the weight of timber material and human error. Weighing is an important and essential part of the entire timber logistics chain. Efforts are being made to avoid overloading, especially for road safety reasons. Underloads, on the other hand, usually also mean inefficiency at work and under-expedient time and other resources.


Tamtron One Timber timber crane scale ensures optimal load weight for timber transports

Tamtron is responding to the industry’s challenges with a new generation of One Timber timber crane scales, which provides accurate weighing information to ensure that the right load weight is reached. The loaded cargo is always in accordance with the car’s weight limits and road traffic regulations.

“Weighing accuracy is the number one thing – it needs to be polished to its peak, and the user’s handprint must not affect accuracy. At Tamtron, we have been a partner for crane manufacturers and transport entrepreneurs for decades, and we know the challenges facing the industry. One Timber is extremely accurate and enables optimized loading in all conditions,” says Harri Pentinniemi, Product Manager at Tamtron.

One Timber’s design and implementation take into account customers’ wishes, experiences from the field in different environmental conditions and the industry as a whole. It is especially suitable for continuous loading and challenging conditions. One Timber has a new generation Tamtron One touchscreen and a stretch lye sensor that are wirelessly connected. The weighing sensor is based on ethic lye technology, so there are no moving parts or hydraulics that cause friction in the sensor that affect the weighing result.


Correct load weight in real time available to the entire organisation

The One Timber timber crane scale also increases transparency between different actors throughout the timber logistics chain. Weighing data is automatically transferred from the scales to the cloud service One Cloud.

For example, it is easy to send work orders to the driver, and correspondingly, the weighing data is automatically stored in real time in the system without interruption of work. The main contractor can, on the other hand, monitor all the wood load volumes and schedules processed by subcontractors. Reporting and cooperation with the partner network is also made easier when the required information is in one place easily and reliably.

“In the end, the weighing sensor is a small part, but it plays a big role in how actors build trust in each other and in the entire operating process, trading and business. When data is stored in the reliable and secure One Cloud cloud service, the weighing data is always correct and up-to-date. At the same time, the weighing data combines all the necessary information and documents, which in turn speeds up invoicing, among other things,” says Pauli Suoniemi, Sales Manager at Tamtron Finland.
