Advantia Transport Consulting has developed a free tool to assist industry with calculating Tier 1 mass of a combination as well as help refine designs.
This move follows years of pressure from stakeholders, since the inception of Performance-Based Standards (PBS), about the challenges of obtaining road access for PBS vehicles.
The timing of Advantia’s Tier 1 Mass Calculator coincides with the recently published National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) Tier 1 Notice.
On 27 October a national gazette as part of the Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL) was published to allow for some Performance-Based Standards (PBS) vehicle to operate up to their Tier 1 mass limits.
