Right Weigh’s international presence is expanding in Colombia, South America, with the addition of a new distributor, Innovatrans, in response to increasing interest in the region.
“We are seeing a growing global need for affordable onboard scales, especially in countries that are increasing their legal weight regulations,” says Scott McCulloch, director of communications for Right Weigh Inc., based in Sherwood, Ore. “South America, and Colombia specifically, is a good example of a market where the regulation of truck and trailer weights is increasing in an effort to promote safety on their highways.”
With the down economy affecting the profit margins of trucking companies around the world, Right Weigh says its load scales are becoming recognized as a leading tool to help increase efficiency and reduce expenses. By knowing that their trucks are loaded legally before leaving the loading site, drivers can lessen the expenses typically associated with weight management. With the simple installation of Right Weigh Load Scales, drivers can better maximize and safely balance every load, preventing overweight fines and avoiding out-of-route miles locating public scales, according to the company.
