  • Reduction and minimisation of overloading
  • Preventing road damage and preserving our infrastructure
  • Enhancing the safety of heavy vehicles on our national roads
  • Taking care of truck drivers’ health (Driver Wellness Initiatives)
  • Reduction of traffic violations (e.g. reducing speeding incidents)
  • Improving efficiency in various industry supply chains
  • Actively promoting skills development within the transport sector
