Container Weighing System - What did we share with the attendees?

As seen in the picture, Núria Teixidó, SENSOCAR's Technical Director, spoke at the event about our container weighing system, a solution adapted to obtain gross mass of containers according to SOLAS regulation.

It was explained that our solution is based on replacing the existing twistlocks from spreaders for new twistlocks converted as load cells. This technology makes it possible to obtain real-time weight information at the exact moment the spreader lifts up the container, which may be used for tracking, verification and safety purposes.

It has been an honour to present at this innovative and enriching event. Thanks to Port de Barcelona to give us the opportunity to share our projects.
