efficient truck bodies

It shouldn't be so hard

Many body builders struggle to find the information they need to calculate axle masses, dimensions, payload capacity and centre of gravity.

At TruckScience, we’ve created an Axle Weight Calculator that brings all the spec sheets and legislation together, so you can get on with the business of designing safe, legal, and efficient truck bodies.

Better bodies means more orders, and more customers coming back for more.

What do I get?

The optimal configuration

that achieves the maximum
payload for the chassis

Professional reports

with drawings, weights, dimensions
and centre of gravity info

Answer to what-if questions

by testing axle layouts
and equipment positions

Signed-off designs

before you proceed
with the build


 waiting for answers
from third parties

Peace of mind

from knowing you’re building safe
and legal trucks

How it works

Choose a Chassis
