Almost everything that is manufactured and consumed is hauled by a truck, often multiple times: from raw material; to finished goods; to retail distribution; and then, to point of sale. But there is something missing throughout this massive network of transportation. Weight. We pay for shipping by weight. Trucks are loaded by weight. Governments enforce by weight. Trucks buy permits and pay fines by weight. Roads and bridges are destroyed by weight. And yet, most truck drivers don’t have an accurate, reliable or easy way of knowing how much their vehicle or their load weighs. An Air-Weigh on-board scale could have them on the road loaded properly, safely, legally.
At Air-Weigh we see unlimited opportunity in this huge inefficiency in goods transport. We’re working hard to develop technologies that eliminate this problem. It’s a great challenge, and we need great people. Air-Weigh is more than a growing technology company; we’re developing a new market and we have a shot at becoming the global powerhouse. What’s more we’re doing it right here in the beautiful Willamette Valley with technology and products we can proudly label “Made in America”. – less
