TWBMS - Truck and Weighbridge Management System.

eSoft offers Truck and Weighbridge (TWBMS) solution that would enable any industry to monitor the trucks entering and exiting the plant and the weight of the truckload as they are being weighed at the weighbridges inside the plant. The automated recording of each loaded truck will allow the management to keep track of the raw material in stock, the weight of goods produced and the weight of finished goods ready for delivery. This, in turn, will help organizations to manage their material handling process efficiently.

The entire information (i.e., truck details, weight, supplier info, delivery info, number of trips etc.) can be accessed from the system any time to validate current stock/ delivery positions.
