With the commissioning of our new 50 tonne drive-on platform scale at our Wailekutu complex in Suva, WG can now better determine accurate container load weights helping to ensure that they are transported in compliance with Fiji’s Land Transport Authority (LTA) allowable limits, and within limits at the destination ports.
Accurate container weights are also imperative for smaller island container vessels, which often travel at maximum stow weights. These vessels’ cranes are often smaller and mis-declared weights on containers and heavy containers pose a safety risk. There has been fatal accidents on the wharf in Suva.
Our weighbridge has been vetted and accredited by the Ministry of Industry and Trade. Additionally, six WG employees now hold weighbridge licenses and are accredited to confirm cargo weights.
