We are very excited about this new fleet of Mack trucks, and we know our drivers will appreciate all that’s going into them to make their jobs easier, but also safer and more efficient. The first truck shipments were delivered to the terminals on the west coast last fall, replacing our company driver’s existing day cabs. The final truck shipment will be delivered this spring.
The new trucks are 2020 Mack Anthem with Bendix Fusion collision mitigation and lane departure assist. Each truck will come standard with automatic transmission, Bluetooth technology, as well as the latest technology in electronic logging and tablets for streamlined communication and reporting with dispatch.
Also, in an effort to reduce the potential of rear-end collisions, all trucks are equipped with electronic braking to help drivers maintain a safe distance behind other vehicles using a radar sensor, which also alerts the driver with an audible warning.
We want the attention of our drivers to remain on the road at all times, and these trucks will enable this so that they can reach their destinations on time, but most importantly, safely
