Transport technology company EROAD has opened its first US office in Portland, Oregon, with five staff, following a a commercial pilot in 2012 and a regulatory pilot in 2013.

EROAD chose Oregon as its first US market because the state has a road charging system that is similar to New Zealand’s.

Following the regulatory pilot, an independent review by the Oregon state government concluded that EROAD's electronic weight-mileage tax solution reduces the burden of record-keeping by helping motor carriers prepare and submit weight-mile tax reports, automating a paper-based process and saving money.
