EUGENE, Ore. (BUSINESS WIRE) — April 30, 2012— Air-Weigh, the global provider of on-board scales, has teamed with Routeware to integrate data from on-board scales into the HomePort refuse solution system. The newly incorporated data will allow fleet managers in the refuse industry to monitor the weight of their vehicles and see vehicle weight information in real time.
“The combination of Air-Weigh’s on-board scales and Routeware’s route management products and services is a natural fit,” said Martin Ambros, president and CEO of Air-Weigh. “We are pleased to be working together to bring our advanced scale technology to the refuse industry.”
Routeware HomePort customers who have Air-Weigh scales on their vehicles will now see vehicle weight information in real time. Fleet managers will be able to monitor the weight of their vehicles and determine when they need to go to the landfill. The integrated on-board scale technology will also eliminate over-weight tickets that often happen at or on the way to the landfill.
The Routeware system not only provides the ability to store scale data and overweight alerts, but also provides fleet managers with real time updates of any abnormal events that might occur. With HomePort, companies can know where their trucks are and what they’re doing from the time they leave the yard until they return at the end of the day.
“The HomePort system with Air-Weigh data will save fleet managers valuable time and money,” said Tom Malone, president and CEO of Routeware. “Air-Weigh is a company that shares our interest in improving efficiency through high-quality products.”
