2.7.4 Average Weight Characteristics

Table 2-7-4 shows the average gross vehicle weight (empty weight plus weight of cargo) of TIUS Column D trucks for each State. For the five border States combined, excluding the “not reported” category:

Most trucking occurs at weight levels requiring five or less axles. About 7 of 10 truck movements occur at an average GVW of less than 40,000 pounds GVW, which generally require no more than three-axles; 85 percent occurs at average weight levels of less than 60,000 pounds GVW, which generally require no more than four-axles; 97.5 percent occurs at average weight levels of less than 80,000 pounds GVW, which generally require no more than five-axles.

Little trucking occurs at weight levels requiring more than five axles. About 99 percent of the loads occur at an average GVW of less than 100,000 pounds and probably require six or seven-axles. About 1 percent of the loads weigh in the range from 100,000 to 130,000 pounds and probably require eight or nine-axles.

From the perspective of the five border States, excluding the “not reported” category:

Roughly 1 of 20 trucks in Washington, Idaho and Montana operate at an average GVW of more than 80,000 pounds generally requiring more than five-axles.

In North Dakota, 1 of 100 trucks operate at an average GVW requiring more than five- axles.

Minnesota has the least amount of trucking, 3 in 1000, at an average GVW requiring more than five-axles.
