Flatbeds are one of the most commonly used trailers due to their versatility. A flatbed trailer can be loaded from the top, sides, or rear of the trailer making it a primary and common asset to the flatbed trucking industry.
Flatbeds are used for heavy loads. If a trailer is loaded incorrectly, a lot of time is put into repositioning the material. This also causes safety concerns because it is dangerous repositioning heavy materials.
Where freight is positioned also impacts the life of the axles. It is important to the life of the trailer to not be overloaded on a single suspension.
We want customers to know the weight of their trailer while they are loading, so that they can secure the freight and go. Without Air-Weigh scales, trailers are being loaded, secured, taken to be check weighed, and they discover they are overweight and have to reposition.
