Aurora Parts and Prime Transport Solutions (PTS) have successfully partnered to distribute Safety Award Winning and world-patent pending trailer pneumatic landing gear (PTS50®) in North and South America. The PTS50®, often referred to as a “game changer” in the trade, has gained momentum, proving itself in the field since late 2013 with North American fleets. The combined benefits presented by PTS50® by far supersede the value of other well-meaning innovative technologies in the market offering one to two benefits at the most. The PTS50® benefits include; risks reduction, enhanced safety of drivers, reduction of work compensation claims, idling reduction time, maintenance cost reduction, lighter weight, recruiting/retention of quality drivers, operational efficiency and superior performance.
“Aurora Parts is known in the trailer industry for embracing new and innovative technology. The PTS50® and its attention to safety and strength, along with the time and cost savings makes this partnership instrumental in driving the industry forward. The potential life cycle savings for the pneumatic landing gear is indeed a ‘game changer’,” states Shelley Sheagley, VP of Marketing at Aurora Parts.
“We are excited to partner with Aurora in this venture. The PTS50® has proved itself. PTS50® is also in the running for additional awards in 2015 in both North America as well as Europe. With the help of Aurora, PTS50® will be readily available through the Americas. PTS50® is now poised to make a positive impact for sophisticated fleet operators.” Simon E. Bois, EVP & GM North America PTS
