Automated weighbridge operation dramatically improves ACC’s turnaround time

Sejuti Das | Nov. 4, 2016
Here is how ACC Limited worked its way around product dispatch efficiency through automation.

Singla says, "The trucks are weighed automatically and the results are displayed on a PC monitor. The driver gets the corresponding printout and for further reporting, the data is also recorded in our system. This minimizes mistakes, offers protection of data, and increased vehicle throughput."

ACC's unmanned weighbridge system is a standalone system that allows 24 hours and 7 days a week of weighing operations without the need of an operator. Due to the system's easy interface, it can easily be operated by the truck driver.

Benefits

Since the implementation, ACC has been able to minimize human interference and reduce the likelihood of error and fraud.

Singla says, "We have deployed an automated process, which helped us in reducing the manpower from four personnel to zero. With such implementation, we were able to plug the leakage in terms of overweighing. The turnaround time of the trucks improved by 60 percent, i.e. from an hour to 15 minutes. Along with it, the number of dispatched trucks has also increased."
