Learn How To Reduce Shipping Costs
By optimising your container payload
Whether you are exporting foodstuffs or chemicals, powders, minerals or recycled waste, the costs and risks are the same:
If you are estimating container or flexitank loads, or using inaccurate check weighers such as flowmeter or a weighbridge that is off-site, BISON Container Scales will solve your problem.
Accurately weighing the container, in real time, at the loading point, before, during and after loading means you will maximise revenue and lower shipping costs.
BISON Container Scales are the perfect solution for optimizing payloads of containerised cargo. You will:
Unlike other check weighing methods, BISON Container Scales allow you to accurately weigh the entire container, in real time, as the container is loaded.
And if you are shipping liquid cargo in flexitanks, use the weight and liquid density to calculate and optimize the volumetric payload during loading.
Stop guessing the weight or volume of your containerised cargo and start delivering optimized payloads every time.
If you are loading bulk commodities into grounded containers, use BISON C-Jacks to weigh the container before, during and after loading.
BlueSky Meats were loading container loads of bone meal "by eye" at their plant. With the nearest weighbridge 30km away, the company incurred costs from overweight and under loaded containers.
BlueSky Meats adopted BISON C-Legs and now maximise revenue from each container load of bone meal. Haulage costs are streamlined. Weighbridge fees have been eliminated. Returns, re-work and scheduling delays are now avoided.
Seafood exporter Talley's wanted to optimize container loads of fish oil in flexitanks. Containers were sometimes dispatched up to 2,000 litres underloaded. Flow metres were inaccurate. Check weighing at a weighbridge disrupted the loading process, adding costs and causing delays. Talley's invested in a set of BISON C-Jacks and now optimise flexitank loads of fish oil during loading. By weighing the container in real time, Talley's have increased profitability, reduced shipping costs and eliminated delays.
If you are under loading your containers, you are paying more in shipping costs than you need to!
When you think of each individual container load, the cost may not seem high, however the aggregate cost over the course of a year can be staggering.
Think, if you could safely increase the payload of each container by 10%, you would ship 10% less containers per year. If you shipped 200 containers in a season, at an average shipping cost of $2,000 per container, underloading by 10% costs your business $40,000 each season.
