Volvo North America is gearing up to retrofit with the PTS50® landing legs for their latest test trailer on the SuperTruck™. Prime Transport Solutions Ltd is in the process of arranging a second North American SuperTruck™ project after already being included on the Daimler SuperTruck™ project back in early 2014.
Volvo North America have been impressed by the numerous benefits of the PTS50 for semi-trailers. The USA Department of Energy $300+ million SuperTruck™ program has been put together with a vision to bring leading edge technology to the transport industry with increased safety in mind aiming to achieve 50% more fuel efficiency.
Daimler has already acknowledged the stated benefits of the PTS50® and specifically points out the PTS50® “enables more aerodynamics”. PTS believes that in the next 5 years the PTS50® will be the 1st choice for all landing gear users in North America and Europe.
