Heavy Duty Trucking Magazine (HDT), leader and award winner in innovative, effective media services for trucking and its allied industries since early 1900s has confirmed “Prime Transport Solutions’ [PTS] pneumatic trailer legs are one of the contenders for this year’s HDT Top 20 products, which will be featured in our February  issue”.
Each year, HDT honors 20 of the best new products introduced the previous year with its Top 20 awards. Each product is selected based on its level of innovation, whether it addresses significant industry issues or concerns, and its potential to improve a trucking operation’s bottom line. HDT will be handing out the awards at the upcoming February 2015 Technology & Maintenance Council (TMC) conference in Nashville, TN, USA.
“It is the total cumulative value of all ten distinctive benefits of the PTS50® over the standard crank-operated legs that make the PTS50® so potent in favor of fleets against their own competition. All proven benefits of the PTS50® clearly meet HDT’s criteria in innovation addressing industry issues such as driver safety and recruiting or retention, maintenance, fuel, aerodynamics, weight, performance, efficiency and carbon print. After receiving a first safety award in 2014, current users being pleased with performance, this announcement from HDT is quite timely. We feel grateful forHDT’s renowned objective consideration. We thank them for the opportunity of being considered. We wish all other contenders the very best in this event. We truly feel privileged to be counted among them all, making a positive impact in the business.”Simon E. Bois, EVP & GM North America PTS
