ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--TMC 2018 Annual Meeting – Aperia Technologies Inc., a leading supplier of tire inflation technologies that improve the safety and efficiency of commercial vehicle tractors and trailers, today announced that Tribe Transportation will further its long-standing commitment to safety and efficiency by equipping its fleet with Halo Tire Inflation.
“Our company invests heavily in safety,” said Todd Gooch, Vice President of Tribe Transportation. “The transport of a wide variety of perishable products requires close customer collaboration and a state-of-the-art fleet. Our fleet of Kenworth T680’s is equipped with the industry’s most advanced technologies, which now includes Halo Tire Inflation devices.”
Tire under-inflation remains an industry hazard for the eight million tractor trailers on U.S. roadways. Tribe Transportation, powered by Halo, will reduce downtime, maximize tire life and reduce fuel consumption based on automatic tire pressure management.
“Aperia’s Halo Tire Inflator is a robust, easy-to-use solution that automatically keeps tires from falling below their target pressure range,” said Josh Carter, CEO of Aperia Technologies. “Safety-first fleets like Tribe invest in Halo technology to reduce roadside calls and overall operating expenses while promoting fleet-wide safety and efficiency.”
Used extensively in heavy-duty trucks since 2015, Aperia’s Halo Tire Inflator is North America’s leading automatic tire inflation solution for tractors and has become the tire inflation solution of choice for more than 300 fleet customers.
