Maximizing Loads and Protecting Infrastructure

road-vehicle-interface-01.jpgOur road-vehicle interface expertise focuses on road infrastructure preservation technology in heavy transportation operations and assessing the consequences of these systems on roads. FPInnovations is a world leader in the application of tire pressure control systems (TPCS) on heavy trucks in order to reduce their impact on unpaved access roads and thin pavement roads. We have designed and applied modelling techniques to assess the impact of various truck configurations. We can use our experience and know-how to help you adapt policies and implement solutions, including winter load premiums in several provinces. Our expertise also includes analyzing the impact of heavy vehicles on bridges.
