Every day, Engistics trains truck drivers in how to securely load their vehicles. They skilfully combine engineering with logistics to ensure Australia’s roads are kept as safe as possible. The company came to Appscore looking to better inform the public on how to ensure safety when it comes to loading vehicles. The best way to do this? Engage audiences on a medium many are already familiar with – the mobile phone. We crafted a simple-to-use app for users to download, helping them to easily determine whether their loads meet restraint regulations before they hit the road.
Enforcing load restraint compliances to improve road safety
With load restraint failures contributing to five fatal accidents every year in Australia, the Engistics team was concerned that drivers weren’t paying enough attention to checking and securing their loads. They wanted to change these figures and improve road safety by encouraging people to think twice about load restraint compliance.
Reaching out to the public on a platform everyone uses
We worked closely alongside the Engistics team to come up with a savvy app that revolutionised road transport safety. No matter where they are or what kind of load they’re working with, users can download the Checkaload app on their iOS or Android phone or tablet to ensure their vehicles are safe and secure for travelling. While load checking is undeniably a complex business, we were able to combine engineer-certified calculations with a minimal user interface to create a powerful yet easy-to-use tool.
