Airtec brings bespoke scales solutions to national freight operator

When National Freight transportation company Nolan’s Transport needed a custom solution to their fleet’s scales needs, they decided to turn to technology company Airtec for a well-considered solution.

Nolan’s Interstate Transport is a highly regarded family-owned business. Operating within Queensland, New South Wales & Victorian regions. 

The business was founded in the early 1900’s where horse and cart was the means of transportation. The company evolved and expanded, passed down through generations of family members nurturing the growth of the business. 

Today Nolan’s is known for their professionalism and quality freight and distribution service on a national scale. The company has also acquired various accreditations under categories including road safety and risk management. 

The Challenge:

Nolan’s primary assets are Kenworth and Volvo, Prime Movers and rigid trucks. The heavy vehicles haul both general freight goods and perishables. Therefore, truck scales are essential for productivity and mass management of loads.

After purchasing some new vehicles for their fleet, Nolan’s decided to also review their truck scales. Key areas of concern for the team at Nolan’s were:

  • Ease of installation
  • Accuracy of results
  • Accommodations for their unique loading conditions

Airtec’s Solution:

Airtec provided Nolan’s with a bespoke SmartOBM solution which included a combination of:

  • AXM M02 for Prime Movers
  • AXMRX-IVU in-cab remotefor their Prime Movers
  • AXL S01 for trailers
  • AXL S02 for dollies
  • TruckOBM App integration

This product combination allows Nolan’s to meet their compliance needs as well as achieving the most accurate results possible from their loads. Saving them time and increasing their efficiency.

Benefits that Nolan’s have experienced since implementing Airtec’s SmartOBM products include:
