Mischa van Berkel, Account Manager: 'The advantage of mobile weighing is that it’s fast, it does not interrupt the process.'
Nicole Swinkels (PR manager): ‘Input for efficiency is the slogan with which Huijbregts Groep promotes its logistic services to the food industry. For us mobile weighing is a logical aspect of that striving for efficiency.’
A. van Leeuwen (production manager): 'A floor scale does mean extra handling, since you need to drive your forklift to the scale. Now you can see the weight of the load when you lift it.'
Deputy director Piotr Halamski: ‘The weighing systems gave us complete return on investment within three months.'
IT manager Schreiber and warehouse manager Grunklee: 'We are absolutely on the right track with the RAVAS mobile scales. We can now easlily reduce the number of picking errors.’
Production manager Matthijs Vossen:‘ The pallet truck scales turned out to be tremendously useful: you are no longer waiting for each other and there’s some extra factory floor space.’
Project engineer J. Lemmens: 'Our department is a link in the production chain: if things come to a stop here, other departments stop as well. By weighing the containers, we know exactly when they will run empty and we can plan our production accordingly. In a way RAVAS has improved the performance of the complete production line.’
Shift leader F. Hillus: ‘We work faster now: since we weigh on the spot, it only costs us one man hour per day. It used to be two man hours.’
Operations manager Victor Ghiurea: 'The RAVAS mobile scales integrated in our WLAN system, speed up our production time significantly. This means that our trailers can leave earlier from our DC to supply our nineteen stores, enabling us to supply even our remote stores early in the morning so that they, in turn, can supply the local hotels with fresh foodstuff. This gives us extra commercial possibilities.'
Production manager H. Lugtenburg: 'For the client waste disposal is a cost issue. He is taken with the fact that we weigh on site and that he is immediately aware of how much waste is removed.'
Logistic manager Jan Verberne: 'Thanks to the hand pallet truck scales we save at least 8 man hours per week.'
Duty Export Manager Posdijk: 'It turned out that we missed out on a lot of kilo’s and therefore a lot of turnover. We went looking for a legal for trade forklift scale, so we could invoice the client with any overweight already during offloading. Checking declared weight brought us several hundred thousand euros extra turn over during the first months. It’s certainly worthwhile to weigh in this manner.'
Planner/purchaser P. Smets: 'We are more flexible now and we make less errors, because everything is handled by one man. Weighing on a mobile scale easily saves us one man on a yearly basis.'
Warehouse operations manager, M. Verwey: ‘It used to take us 8 man hours a day to transfer waste to containers and lorries. The new procedures for weighing and disposing of waste materials, will bring us significant cost reductions.’
Service company management, Mr. Roloff: 'With the counting scales on our stacker trucks order picking has become much more efficient: faster and less errors. Perfect for just-in-time deliveries.’
Team leader system engineering Jan Kulling: 'Since we use the mobile scales, the error percentage in deliveries is below 0.1%. That has helped us to considerably increase client satisfaction.’
Technical services department Hans van Dorp: ‘We have bought the scale equipment for check weighing, but since this forklift weighs anyway, we use it for many more purposes.'
