Thanks to advances in technology, products can be moved all over the world with ease and speed. However, people rarely stop to consider what equipment determines how freight is paid for and tracked or what is used to safely load shipping containers and trucks per SOLAS requirements. There are a variety of different types of scales built for weighing freight including floor scales, forklift scales, truck scales and rail road scales on the ground and overhead weighing equipment like crane scales, dynamometers and tension links used with lifting devices. Nicol Scales & Measurement offers multiple scale and weighing solutions that are heavy duty NTEP approved, legal for trade devices. Dimensional weight (or “dim weight”) is the new formula used to charge for shipping services, and NSM offers the iDimension systems from Rice Lake that offer the fastest and most accurate dimensional weight capture in the industry.
Our service department carries over $250,000 of spare parts in stock for fast, one-call repairs, and our fleet of heavy duty test trucks carry some of the 100,000 lbs of NIST traceable, certified calibration standards that we use daily.
