Big Truck Guide Launches Site With Info on Truck Weights, Measures

Big Truck Guide.com has launched a website with information on maximum truck weights and lengths.

A paid membership area on the site provides access to data on gross weights, payload estimates, axle weights and dimensions for 27 commonly used truck types across all U.S. states and Canadian provinces. Shippers can check the state in which they operate, then find the optimal truck for their load. Carriers and truck drivers can ensure compliance and look for above-average weight allowances, the company said. In addition, shippers and carriers can identify the 28 states in the U.S. with weight limits above 80,000 pounds for trucks with tri-axle trailers. They can also reference all states where turnpike doubles are permitted, with information on the payloads available to operate in each state.
