Successful Shanks Trial Leads to Big Order for VWS
March 2014

Following months of trials, Shanks, a leading international sustainable waste management business, has recently selected the ENVIROWEIGH bin-weighing system from Vehicle Weighing Solutions Ltd (VWS) for 16 of its refuse vehicles as well as the company’s Loadweigh-CAN under-body weighing system for 8 Front End Loaders, all manufactured and installed by Vehicle Weighing Solutions Ltd (VWS).

Julian Glasspole, Managing Director, VWS said: “All the systems are weights and measures approved and were fully tested for 9 months by Shanks before we installed them.”


The vehicles were supplied by Noblets and the weighing systems were fitted to 16 x Geesink Norba Rear End Loaders and 8 x Heil Front End Loaders by VWS at its workshops in Chesterfield. CMS Supatrak supplied the bin weigh software and tracking.


The ENVIROWEIGH bin weighing system is the first truly British dynamic weights and measures approved system of its kind.  VWS has developed data collection, storage, transfer and manipulation solutions to suite any IT infrastructure plus the system can interface with the latest software, GPS and telemetry technologies for remote monitoring.  Now a complete one-stop weighing shop, VWS has added and slow speed weigh-in-motion equipment to complement its comprehensive vehicle weighing portfolio.


VWS belongs to a family of complimentary British companies known collectively as  specialising in the design, manufacture, installation and servicing of load cells, weighing systems and traffic monitoring systems.
