New Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) legislation mandates accurate weighing of shipping containers as they arrive or leave site, as well as verification of the weight of sea containers before they are loaded onto a ship.

Weighbridges are one of the most accurate and convenient ways to weigh shipping containers and their contents. You’re sure to find a solution to suit your weighing with AccuWeigh’s extensive range, including axle weighers, pit weighbridges, multi-decks, weigh-in-motion systems and portable weighbridges.

An important weighbridge accessory, particularly for SOLAS legislation, is weighbridge ticketing systems. These systems are ideal for creating SOLAS certificates and ensuring complete traceability.

The Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) accepts a range of our certified weighing systems (including weighbridges for shipping containers, shipping container scales, pallet weighing scales and bulk weighing systems). And, as a licensed NMI testing company, AccuWeigh is even authorised to test all weighing equipment.

How shipping container weighbridges work

Using AccuWeigh’s innovative weighbridge software, vehicle tare weights can be stored on the system and later deducted from a gross weighbridge reading to determine the shipping container’s load.

Alternatively, a vehicle may cross the weighbridge twice, once loaded and once unloaded, for maximum accuracy of the load.
