Weight-sensitive transports in particular benefit from the weight reduction achieved by BPW lightweight components.

More usable load, less fuel consumption: BPW offers the lightest trailer running gear of all times for extremely efficient transport

The new world champion in featherweight is called BPW: With novel lightweight components, BPW pushes the module weight of the 9t Airlight II trailer running gear to under 370 kilograms. This brings not only unprecedented lightness to heavy goods traffic, but also allows transport companies to benefit from more usable load and digital services throughout the vehicle's life.

BPW is bringing the running gear computer, AGRO Hub, to the series with a digital weighing system.

Agriculture 4.0: Total transparency in driving, loading, spreading, feeding and weighing with the BPW AGRO Hub weighing system

Contractors and cultivators can now continuously digitally monitor the total weight and the usable load of their drawbar trailers – even during use: the running gear computer AGRO Hub, which BPW will present at Agritechnica 2019, controls and measures the use of spreaders and loading and feed mixers. Even transport drawbar trailers are saved the detour via weighbridges and yard scales.

Open.Together: the BPW Group is showcasing itself as a partner for digitisation and networking at ‘transport logistic’ trade show

BPW is one of the global market leaders for trailer axles and running gear systems – but anyone looking for heavy metal at transport logistic in Munich is in for a surprise: the BPW Group stand at the trade fair (Hall A6, Booth 310) is all about digitisation, networking and electromobility. However, the company group wants to inspire its customers with more than just high-tech solutions...

Weighed and approved: BPW presents running gear computer with integrated weighing system at Bauma

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. This allows drivers and transport companies to gain full transparency over mileage and transported quantities – and can also bill by weight.
