BPW products already fulfil the requirements of the EU simulation tool VECTO, which makes it easier to compare trailers and rewards climate-friendly technologies with a CO2 bonus.

BPW now makes it possible to determine the weight of the load using a new type of sensor that via a hub wirelessly transmits its data from the drawbar trailer axle directly to end devices and via an ISO bus interface also to the driver's cab.
