Static Motion (Pty) Ltd was established in 2016 in Pretoria, and provides consulting engineering and management services in the transportation industry. The company name was inspired by the quest to estimate static axle loads from dynamic (weigh-in-motion) measurements, and communicates the company’s key interest in static weighbridge operations and weigh-in-motion of vehicles. The name also communicates stability and constant progress.

Static Motion is categorised as an Exempt Small & Micro Enterprise (ESME), and therefore a Level 4 BEE Contributor. Its founder and managing director, Gerhard de Wet, personally oversees or executes all projects. All aspects of each project therefore receive the personal attention of a registered professional engineer with more than 17 years of consulting experience in the transportation industry.


Static Motion is driven by the following core values:

  • Excellence – the drive for perfection and quality, delivering projects first-time-right, on time and in a professional manner
  • Innovation – to continuously explore opportunities to produce something unique and elevating, and to develop leading ideas that distinguish the company, its projects and its clients
  • Integrity – to earn the trust of clients, peers and contractors through honest, unbiased and responsible engineering
  • Legacy – to pay tribute to the legacy of the great minds that paved the way, and to leave a lasting impression on the industry for the future
