Chambers Get On-Board with VWS
Guildford-based Chambers Waste Management PLC, trade waste and recycling providers for over 40 years, has equipped its latest fleet of vehicles with on-board weighing equipment from Vehicle Weighing Solutions Ltd (VWS). The equipment facilitates the company’s pay by weight service and ensures that customers pay for waste collections proportionately.
Two years ago Chambers Waste Management called in VWS when a bin-weigher supplied by a competitor wasn’t operating properly. VWS rectified the problem and Chambers went on to order VWS’ Enviroweigh dynamic bin-weigher for its Geesink Norba RCV. As the only British weights and measures approved bin-weighing system, and with an unrivalled accuracy to within 0.5% or better, Chambers can offer customers a pay by weight service. Enviroweigh also offers a host of data collection, storage, transfer and manipulation solutions for all kinds of IT infrastructures.
VWS went on to install underbody weighing systems to a wide range of vehicles in Chambers’ fleet including two Cargotec Hook-lift loaders, two Thompsons Tippers and three Titan Walking Floor Trailers. Most recently VWS has been asked to install underbody and bin-weighing to the company’s Heil Big Bite.
Emma Chambers, Finance Director, Chambers said: “We have been delighted with the VWS product and support. They have been extremely helpful and have worked closely with us to manage the interface from the weighing system with our ISIS software package.”
As Chambers’ one-stop weighing partner VWS is responsible for servicing and maintaining existing weighing equipment, as well as installing new weighing technology, on the company’s 55+ fleet of vehicles.
Julian Glasspole, Managing Director, VWS said: “Chambers is a very successful company and we are delighted to be their chosen weighing partner. Our aim is to provide a seamless one-stop shop that takes the hassle out of weighing, by taking care of servicing, maintenance and new installations.”
Chambers Waste Management belongs to the Chambers Group, an integrated recycling, waste management and aggregates business servicing a wide range of commercial and domestic customers.
