"The program is very user friendly. If you any problems you are always able to get assistance from a live operator and not be on hold forever. "
Approach weigh stations with confidence
One of the biggest fears of scaling 30+ miles from the shippers site is deciding to avoid weigh stations and DOT officers instead of fixing loads and losing drive time.
Know what you Weigh
BIT Air Scales will let you know in real time what you weigh as you are getting loaded. Fix loads at the shipper instead of taking off overloaded.
Avoid DOT Violations
Knowing that your axle weights are legal means you don't have to risk avoid the DOT. Don't skip the scales or drive back roads ever again.
Don't let shippers control your business
Shippers that overload trucks cost carriers and drivers thousands of dollars in lost drive time, DOT violations, off-site scaling, lost fuel and backtracking to get loads fixed. Stay in control of your truck and your loads with onboard truck scales.
In-ground scales can be over 30 miles away from a shippers site and can take hours out of your day to scale and backtrack to fix loads.
Perfectly Balance Loads
See what your axle weights are after loading and adjust your trailer tandems on-site to perfectly balance your loads and have the smoothest rides.
Save on Scale Tickets
Many drivers pay to scale every load for peace-of-mind which can cost thousands per year in scale tickets for loads that were legal. Keep that money in your pocket and grow your fleet instead.
Installing just takes 10 minutes
When we say that BIT Air Scales are easy to install, we mean it. The only tool that you will need is a blade that can cut your plastic air line feeding your air bags on your air suspension. With a straight cut you can push the hose into the DOT approved tee fitting and your new truck scales are installed.
Cut the air suspension line
Using a razor blade, box cutter or hose cutter. Make a straight cut on the air line feeding your air suspension past the height control valve.
Push on your scale sensor
Push your cut line into the DOT approved tee fitting and your truck and trailer now has onboard truck scales.
Assign the sensor
Tell the Blue Ink Tech app which truck or trailer you installed the truck scale sensor on so all drivers can get gross and axle weights from any equipment in your fleet.
Easy to calibrate and incredibly accurate
When you follow the extremely simple calibration process you can see your gross truck weight accuracy with in 200 lbs of what an in-ground scale will read. The more data you give the Blue Ink Tech app to calibrate the smarter and more accurate your bluetooth truck scale sensors become.
