Air-Weigh, a provider of onboard electronic scales, announced the availability of a data interface between trailer tracking solutions and the new QuickLoad Trailer Scale. Blue Tree Systems, a provider of vehicle tracking and communications equipment, has enhanced the R:Com Trailer Tracking and Temperature Management System to acquire trailer weight from the Air-Weigh scale.
For those trailers with both the Air-Weigh QuickLoad Trailer Scale and the Blue Tree Systems R:Com equipment, real-time trailer weight information may be transferred from the scale to the R:Com equipment over the new interface, the companies say; trailer weight then is seamlessly transmitted over a wireless network to the customer back office software.
“Air-Weigh and Blue Tree Systems have teamed up to offer an integrated trailer solution that provides real-time trailer weight,” says Martin Ambros, president and chief executive officer of Air-Weigh. “The weight information may be logged onboard or transmitted over a wireless network from the trailer to the customer’s host site. By working with Blue Tree Systems to offer this solution, we are helping their customers save money with a system that contributes to efficient and productive trucking operations and provides a quick return on investment.”
“The open architecture of Blue Tree’s R:Com system allows direct access to data sources such as the trailer weight information provided by Air-Weigh” says Charlie Cahill, Blue Tree Systems president and CEO. “By combining our progressive Temperature Management and trailer tracking solutions with Air-Weigh’s load management system, we can dramatically increase productivity for our customers.”
