The Vuosaari vehicle scale offer services to those who need continuous or random weighing of their vehicles. The scale can be used for weighing articulated vehicles as well as single vehicle units. The scale in Vuosaari Harbour is located along a public road outside the closed harbour area – it is available for all customers. The reliable, easy-to-use self-service weighbridge is available on weekdays.

Currently, due to a technical reason, registering and ordering codes is not possible – the scale only works with a valid code.

  • width: 3 metres
  • maximum weight of the articulated vehicle weighed: 2 x 50 tons

The weighing is payed for using codes ordered in advance. One weighing code covers a certain number of weighings, as determined when ordering.

Please state in the form the name of your company, contact person, contact information and invoicing information as well as how many weighing codes you need. Also please include your scale customer number, in case you already have one.

You can also give one e-mail address to which all weighing results done on the scale under the code in question will be forwarded. You will receive the same information the driver gets from the scale straight to your e-mail: the weight, the vehicle’s register and the message written by the driver at the scale, such as the container number. In addition, you will receive an e-mail, indicating how many weighings you have left.

Weighing a load

Before weighing a load, the empty vehicle must first be weighed. When entering the load for the second weighing, the number on the previous weighing document is used as the weighing code. The two weighings must be performed within 12 hours of each other. The system prints the empty weight of the vehicle and the weight of the load on the second weighing document.

Please note that the final weighing receipt will contain the Gross/Tare/Net -information ONLY IF the number on the previous weighing is used as the weighing code for the second weighing.
