We've got Axtec axle load indicators on all our trucks, works pretty well. VOSA are hot as hell down here with a checksite very nearby, so one cannot afford to overload etc.

I've always been told the worst thing you can do is stockpile material unless its mid summer when the sun will extract moisture and reduce the weight. If you stockpile material you will need to take into account airiation and the saturation of the soil due to rain water. Always best to excavate into the back of wagons than stockpiling. Im only young though, cue someone with much more knowledge than me to clip me around the ear

If your stockpiling it means you've moved it twice so in the ideal world yes I agree.

From a muckshifters point of view the more stock piling the better.
We get paid to shift muck from AtoB if it then has to go to C we get paid again. Lots of works necessitate temporary storage of material.
Jobs whereby the muck has to go off site in containers or trucks needs to be loaded straight into the method of transport. It all ways makes me wonder the mentality of builders that stack up arisings rather than just load it straight into a skip or truck. Allways allways put the material into its correct place the once, unless you get paid each time you get it into the bucket.
