Axle Load Calculation Software

Load Xpert is a user friendly axle load calculation software that lets you visually configure most types of trucks. Add single or multiple payloads and software will display axle loads instantly.

With a click of a mouse you can drag loads to different places on the trailer and see the axle loads recalculated in real time! Imagine how impressive this can be if you do this in front of a customer.

You can do the same operation with fifth wheel, axle groups and accessories. You can also store in the software database all size and weight info of your tractors, trailers, accessories, payloads, axle groups, etc. You can print superb presentation drawings of your vehicle with complete size and weight info.
