BTS 19: Sweet spot for Smart Truck
Leigh Noske


Leigh Noske is one of the heads of the Australian company that distributes Right Weigh Load Scales – Smart Truck Solutions (STS).

Noske not only has been at every Brisbane Truck Show since it moved into the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre (BCEC) but earlier enjoyed the more outdoors experience of the local showgrounds.

This year, STS is in a sweet spot where Right Weigh products are on-point in the market and the need to detail new or updated technology could wait for another time.

Pride of place at its stand was the in-dash and exterior scales readout screens with digital displays, designed to be compatible with most truck and trailer air-suspension axle configurations.

When ATN caught up with him again a few days after, Noske was still astounded at the interest the 2019 show garnered.

"I really believe that was the most people we’ve had through in the first three days than any other show we’ve been to," he says, nominating the opening day Thursday and the Saturday especially as having the lion’s share, while the Sunday was quieter.

"We’re most satisfied with the amount of interest we had."

Noske is also a regular at the Mid America Trucking Show (MATS) and contrasts its fortunes with the burgeoning performance of the Australian event.

Asked about why that is, he feels that even when the BTS was at the showgrounds, it presented a compelling case for attendees, linking business and recreational reasons.

"People from the other states see it as a good weekend away, the weather is pretty good, they can have a holiday while away – it just doesn’t happen anywhere else," he says.

Noske is certain the next show will not be a repeat of the last, and is hoping "four or five things" under development in the US, that he would not be drawn on, will be ready for launch in two years’ time.
