Largest Increase in Heavy-Duty Truck Orders in Almost Twelve Years
Last month, heavy-duty truck orders hit their highest monthly rate since 2006. The increase in orders is due to a growing supply-demand imbalance and tight capacity caused by stringent food transport compliance standards and the Electronic Logging Device (ELD) mandate.
47,200 new orders were placed in January of this year. This number is 28% higher than in December and 116% higher than in January of last year. More and more trucking companies are taking advantage of the opportunity to expand their fleets.
Heavy-duty trucks are used to carry trailers for long distances. These trailers can contain a large range of products. Unfortunately, tractor-trailers are at high risk of theft. Sometimes the whole trailer is stolen or just the goods inside. The more trailers a company owns, the higher their risk of theft.
It’s more important than ever to properly monitor and track company trailers at all times. This isn’t possible with just a white board and/or a GPS monitoring system. While a GPS might be able to give you the location of your trailer, it cannot tell you what happened or why it got lost.
Mint Controls offers a unique IoT based tractor-trailer tracking solution. Our system monitors location, speed and other important details. It increases driver accountability and provides clear evidence that can be used to locate and prosecute criminals. No other system offers this level of efficiency or protection.
Our system runs on solar power and stays charged for weeks. Thin solar panels are installed quickly and easily on top of trucks. These panels are resistant to extreme forces caused by wind or driving.
