efficient truck bodies

It shouldn't be so hard

Many body manufacturers struggle to find the information they need to calculate axle weights, dimensions, payload capacity and center 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 center 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

then add body and

Optimize your Design

“Almost every truck that leaves our yard is customized. I have been building a database for our entire product line, evaluating which axle weight ratings give optimal bridge load and axle capacity loads. We wouldn’t have considered doing this before we adopted the TruckScience tool.”

“Any truck that is built has the potential to be overweight, depending on how the customer uses it. It is very important to us that we can educate our customers on the potential for being overweight, recommend an optimal configuration, and get sign-off on their chosen design.”
