The Need for Weight Management Solutions
Trucking makes up over 5% of the Australian GDP annually; almost everything we touch, use, consume, and dispose of has been transported at some time by a truck. Trucks are limited in the amount of weight they can carry by government regulations. Overloaded trucks are a factor in damage to road surfaces, bridges, and in highway accidents. Trucks inspected at government weigh stations are subject to heavy fines if they are found to be overweight, and must unload their excess before proceeding. As a result, many trucks will drive to commercial scales at truck stops and pay a fee to check their weights. Every year hundreds of thousands of vehicles without on-board scales waste time, operating costs and fuel to manage this issue. The obvious costs of weight are the $15-$22 fee paid at a Public Certified in-ground scale and the overweight fines, which can range from $500 to a court appearance which may results in hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines. But companies also suffer major annual loses from hidden costs such as out-of-route miles to visit an in-ground scale, time wasted re-working overweight or underweight loads, wasted fuel, revenue lost from under-loading and wasted hours of driver time. With so many factors contributing to the costs of unknown load weight, the industry requires an accurate and reliable solution that is cost-effective. Our mission at Air-Weigh is to fulfil that need.
Air-Weigh on-board scales feature a patented dual-point calibration system, coupled with several unique proprietary technologies that allow customers to accurately know their specific axle weights at the loading site. Air-Weigh eliminates weight-related costs including fees, time, out-of-route miles, fuel, overweight fines, and delays in truck stops. Air-Weigh products are now standard on many fleets worldwide and are available as a factory option through major truck and trailer OEMs. Air-Weigh offers a skilled support team capable of training fleets to implement the product on a mass scale; and also individual phone support for drivers on the road. Air-Weigh Scales are a quick return-on-investment with a payback in just months, and continues to pay additional profits for years to come.
