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.

“Most customers are payload-driven. The TruckScience program allows us to tailor our trailer designs to our customers’ needs. Previously, we were limited to standard trailers or standard rigids, but we have a lot more options to offer our customers now.”
