Big Truck Guide is a startup project that has implications for shippers of goods, transportation companies, and governments around North America. The project is centered around a website which works as a portal for information on truck weights and dimensions. Its ambition is to change the way that transportation companies operate their vehicles so that the most effective vehicle for the job is chosen. This was accomplished by identifying 27 truck types across North America and recording their gross weights, axle weights, and dimensions. By having access to this information, shippers and carriers can easily identify the best trucks for the job, and work to increase the utilization of vehicles.
