VOPS™2 was the star of the show

May 02, 2018

Last week, Vehicle Weighing Solutions exhibited at the CV Show at the NEC in Birmingham and VOPS™2 was the star of the show.  Almost every visitor to the stand wanted to talk to us about fitting an overload protection system to the smaller vehicles in their fleet.  

Once overlooked, vans are now a hot topic and there appears to be a massive shift in attitude towards achieving compliance  - including safe and legal loading.

Our team were on hand to discuss the options available with operators and the show proved to be a great way to take VOPS™2 to the industry.

VOPS™2 is shortisted for Commercial Fleet Award

October 19, 2017

We are pleased to announce that Vehicle Weighing Solutions has made the final shortlist for the Commercial Fleet Awards 2017 in the Best New Product/Service category for our Vehicle Overload Protection System (VOPS™2)!


The event, which is seen as an integral part of the commercial fleet industry calendar, offers a vital opportunity for the industry to come together, network and celebrate its successes. Fleet operators have the opportunity to demonstrate commitment to the highest standards in terms of operation, innovation and safety. Whilst the manufacturer categories compare vehicles across a number of core fleet criteria, including payload, safety, technology, running costs, fuel efficiency, reliability and aftersales service, the supplier categories are also open to companies supplying products and services to commercial vehicle fleets, and reward great service and innovation.
