Featuring the Bendix® Wingman® Fusion™ advanced braking system as well as larger cab space, the new trucks represent the biggest fleet expansion order in the company’s history.
Bendix Wingman Fusion integrates next-generation advanced safety technologies, including radar, camera and brakes, into a comprehensive driver assistance system. The collision mitigation system warns drivers of potential hazards, and can even help brake the truck to prevent accidents.
According to J. Darron Eschle, CEO of Andrews Logistics, even with more cab space, the new trucks weigh less than those they are replacing, which helps increase customer payload and driver safety and comfort. “The Bendix Wingman Fusion braking system gives our drivers the most advanced braking and collision mitigation system available today, and the modern sleeper cab helps promote a better night’s sleep for our drivers—and well-rested drivers are safer operators,” he said.
Eschle also said the new fleet is part of the company’s commitment to achieve a 100 percent safety record. Two years ago, Andrews Logistics launched its Target Zero campaign with the goal of achieving zero injuries, accidents, spills or contaminations. The company provides its team with ongoing safety training and educational materials, and holds every employee accountable for safety measures.
