Air Liquide recently introduced 145 new trucks equipped with cutting-edge safety technologies into its bulk gas distribution fleet as part of its 5-year fleet replacement program.
Under the program, tractors are cycled out of operation based upon equipment life cycle to continuously maintain the safety and reliability of the fleet.
Wayne Bohannon, President of Air Liquide Industrial U.S. LP, commented: “Air Liquide is committed to maintaining the safest vehicles possible. We are consistently updating our fleet to leverage new and improved technologies as they become available.”
The new tractors – a mix of day cabs, single-sleeper cabs, and dual sleeper cabs – are equipped with advanced safety technologies designed to help drivers better react to unexpected road conditions and promote safe driving habits.
Major features of the new trucks include:
The tractor replacement program compliments a range of extensive driver safety programs developed for the company’s 500+ bulk drivers. Air Liquide drivers are required to complete programs such as safety boot camp and fatigue management training, which also involves drivers’ families to promote safe habits at home, on a regular basis.
