Abstract
In early 1997, FERIC performed an operational evaluation of five onboard weigh scales for semi-trailers. The purpose of the study was to assess the scales in the field under normal operating conditions and as used by the drivers. The scales were based on load cells, pneumatic devices, or combinations thereof, and were intended for uses with either leaf-spring or air suspensions. Data were collected on the ease of use of the scales, their accuracies, and their short-term reliability, and were used to assess the suitability of the scales for in-woods use. The study found that four of the scales were consistently with the tolerance (1500 kg) accepted by the Ministère des Transports du Québec, which served as a reference.

Abstract
FERIC a développé un modèle pour estimer le potentiel des remorques polyvalentes à réduire les coûts de transport et l’impact environnemental des opérations de camionnage en réduisant le nombre de remorques sur la route, en utilisant plus efficacement les remorques restantes et en diminuant les distances totales de déplacement. Le modèle a démontré que des économies significatives sont possibles dans toutes les régions du Canada, et qu’elles peuvent même être considérables dans certaines régions.

Abstract
Collisions on forest roads pose a threat to other forestry workers and other travellers. To improve driver safety, FERIC designed a warning system based on FM radio that shows considerable promise. This Advantage report presents the successful results of an operational trial, and discusses implementation issues that remain to be resolved.
