Case Studies
Weigh Point the First Time
A busy warehouse in Michigan, greatly benefitted from using a scale system on their electric walkie trucks. They had recently installed and put into service a competitive system, however at severe inconvenience and an inflated cost.

When approached after-the-fact, Weigh Point’s system was highly recommended for future requirements based on the following reasons:
• The original system was twice the cost of Weigh Point’s scale kit, and although extremely accurate, the 99% accuracy of the Weigh Point solution was well within the user’s specifications.
• System installation could be done locally by the distribution center’s material handling supplier, whereas the original scale required shipping the truck to an installation center in Southern U.S., adding to the bill a $700.00 freight cost plus several weeks of downtime for the truck.
• Because installation required a drastic rework of the truck’s fork assembly, the manufacturer’s warranty was subsequently cancelled. The Weigh Point system minimally alters the truck and maintains the original warranty status.

The customer was pleased with the Weigh Point approach, and has recently requested quotes for the Lift Truck system for their shipping/receiving department.

Case Studies

Distribution Center

A case study worthy of noting involves a south western Ontario distribution center that needed cost saving techniques to improve an ever diminishing bottom line.

The operation involved handling returned goods and reconciling claims through the assessment of waybill weights, as well as receiving product and tracking for inventory shrinkage. Weights were recorded at several stages in the warehouse routing.

The warehouse utilized electric walkies for transportation, and a variety of floor scales for necessary weighing. The staff would transport the goods to a floor scale, record the weight then proceed to the next station, which was a time consuming set of operations quickly identified by Weigh Point as an area for cost reduction.

Weigh Point had the warehouse material handling company install an Electric Walkie Scale Kit, which eliminated unnecessary trips to a floor scale. Simple yet effective.
