New Heavy Hauling Fuel Island Manager Software

February 14th, 2011

Transport freight forwarders will be interested in the news of new fuel island manager software that could help them save time and money and deliver goods in a more efficient, reliable and cost-effective manner during the months and years ahead. QuikQ, a provider of card less direct fuel connection services between truck stop point-of-sale and motor carrier enterprise systems, has recently announced the introduction of Fuel Island Manager.

Fuel Island Manager streamlines fueling for trucking services by detecting and validating the position of a transport truck in the fueling lane and turning on the dispensers without the traditional cards with a magnetic strip and little or no driver input, according to QuikQ. In addition, should the truck leave the fueling station the dispenser is sent a signal to stop fueling the truck, which makes it very difficult for any gas to be taken without authorization.

Transport drivers and fleets shipping cargo to destination on time and budget for a living that want to check out QuikQ’s new fuel island manager software should contact the company directly for more information, or stop by a local dealer of fuel island management software to see what they have on hand. This could be the chance for transport fleets of the United States and the world to possibly save a little time and money during fueling that could be used for other tasks, and make the boss smile a little brighter.

New Hybrid Heavy Haul Trailer Skirt

February 9th, 2011

Transport firms providing a great freight quote for customers that need cargo transported to destination on time and budget have a new low-cost trailer skirt from Laydon designed for fast installation and costing about 40 percent less than previous Laydon Economy Trailer Fairings, according to the company. News that could definitely save a transport company money, if true, but something that will have to be verified by the drivers out on the transport roads and highways of the United States of America taking cargo to destination on time and budget.

Called the Hybrid TrailerSkirt, a pair can be installed on a 53-foot shipping trailer by two men in about an hour, according to Laydon, and have been engineered and designed for fleets that want performance at a reasonable price. The engineers also designed an injection-molded clamp and strut to help keep the skirt in place in all environments and temperature ranges possible in North America. The clamp apparently attaches to a trailers cross members to form mounting points for the skirt panels and supporting struts.

Transport trucking firms that want to have a look at this new low-cost trailer skirt from Laydon should probably hurry because Laydon officials believe this new product is going to be popular and you might have trouble finding a pair if you wait to long. The company also believes the trailer skirt retrofit market potential of this new product could be even greater than new trailer sales.

We’ll have to wait for the first reviews of this new product before we can really comment, but hopefully this new low-cost trailer skirt from Laydon is as good as the company believes.

Heavy Hauling Highway Angel

February 7th, 2011

Transport drivers in the international shipping industry of North America will be happy to hear that Bill G. Poulos, a professional truck driver, has recently been named the latest Truckload Carriers Association Highway Angel for looking after the best interest of a small child caught in a troubling situation on the transport roads and highways of the United States.

Apparently, this truck driver was driving along I-84 on December 31, 2010, when he came upon an accident scene that had occurred just before he arrived on the scene. He stopped to have a look and talk to by standers who had witnessed the accident, to see if there was anyone still inside the mangled vehicle on the side of the road, but no one knew anything. Thinking fast, Bill went over to the vehicle and to his surprise he found a 23-month old girl still strapped in her car seat, actions that are sure to make the trucking services of America proud to say they transport cargo on the roads of the United States for a living.

Bill tried to extract the girl from the damaged vehicle, but the car was damaged too much and he found this difficult, at first. Worried that the vehicle was about to burst into fire and the girl would be trapped and killed, Bill reached into the vehicle and cut the girl loose, and then he crawled on top of the vehicle and pulled the young girl out through the sunroof of the vehicle.

For his action on this day Bill will receive a Highway Angel pin he can proudly wear to show he cares, a certificate, and clothing patch, and he will apparently also be honored with a humanitarian award by his shipping firm for his actions on this day. I am sure all of the attention is probably just a fuss over something he would have done for anyone he found in need during his travels down the transport roads and highways of America and he probably feels his greatest reward is the feeling he gets from knowing he saved the life of the young girl.

Shipping Container Transport Maintenance

February 2nd, 2011

One important job heavy hauling transport firms and drivers need to take care of in order for transport vehicles to keep running down the transport roads and highways of the United States taking cargo to destination on time and budget is eliminating contaminants from truck and trailer air systems. These systems include compressors, hoses and piping, valves, tanks and other parts of a transport vehicle, according to transport safety experts, basic and important components that you need to make sure are in proper working order, or it could cost you time and money down the road.

According to freight transport safety experts moisture, oil and dirt can disrupt the operations of a transport truck and even cause a transport vehicle to stop working and require significant downtime to fix. Compressors do have a filter at outlets to remove most contaminants, according to the experts, and what this filter can’t remove is grabbed by a condenser/separator and then the air dryer. You still need to make sure to check the specifications included with the dryer and condenser/separator, according to safety experts, especially if the volume of air running through the system of your transport vehicle is high. You can also remove moisture and contaminants from the system using drain valves in air tanks, which according to experts should be part of a driver’s pre-trip inspection process, and noted on the inspection check list.

Therefore, before you head out on the roads with a heavy haul transport vehicle make sure you include this in your pre-trip inspection process and you could save yourself a few headaches that could have you spending money to fix a problem, rather than out on the roads making the money you need to stay in business.
