Inventory & Gate Management with LS-WIM

Posted on March 19, 2018

Bulk items, like aggregate or cement, can be difficult to track for the purposes of inventory management. Often yard managers must estimate quantities to order based on educated guesses, leaving room for errors and wasted investment in the form of excessive ordering. Without a reliable means of measurement, yard managers are also unable to verify that they have received the amount of product ordered.

Intercomp’s LS-WIM System offers an effective means to lower overhead, through better inventory management, greater accountability and automated front gate operation. A wide, 13-foot weighing platform, and up to 100,000 lbs load capacity per axle, ensures accurate measurement of just about any type of vehicle, and material.

In addition to a better handle on inventory figures, the LS-WIM System offers the ability to convert gate operations to an efficient, unmanned process with the integration of the LS20 CPU. The optional key fob takes efficiency and automation to the next level, allowing vehicle drivers to activate the system without the need to stop and key in an ID number. Regardless of yard size, Intercomp’sLS-WIMSystem gives managers the tools needed to improve efficiency, and decrease waste and unneeded overhead. With a solid understanding of what comes in and goes out, purchasing accountability increases while minimizing material shortages.
