The system works by dividing a trailer into zones, depending on its size, and employing up to five cargo sensors that work in conjunction. Each sensor simultaneously reports how much freight is loaded into each zone, allowing fleets to see if there is any cargo space that is not being utilized.  

Cargo volume from the new system will appear on a single widget on the Road Ready user interface, relaying how much freight is loaded into each zone, total loaded capacity and the percentage of remaining available space. Fewer sensors can be used on smaller trailers or bodies.

“Road Ready’s new volumetric cargo system gives fleets complete transparency into their trailers and helps them get the most out of their available space,” said Rob Richard, general manager of Truck-Lite’s Road Ready business division. “Knowing whether a trailer’s capacity is fully utilized allows for better decision making and improved overall efficiency, and Road Ready is the first system that has been able to answer the transportation industry’s growing demand for this technology.”
