Try always to be in the best position

A beautiful day is coming, all your drivers left on time this morning and are ready to deliver your customers. You look outside and see that it is starting to snow lightly. You start to be worried, because you know that deliveries are going to be difficult for your drivers and the risk to be stopped or to have an accident can increase. Then, you have no choice but to call back your drivers and reschedule deliveries. You could stay calm if all your trucks were equipped with a traction device.

On the Onspot website, you will find an overview of the different options available. It is called “Ways to increase traction" and covers automatic tire/snow chains, conventional tire and snow chains and textile tire socks. It gives a summary of the pros and cons of the different systems.

Automatic snow chains can help you

The system can be mounted on many vehicles and our configurator online will guide you to order the right kits. Mounted on the truck, the driver has only to push a bottom inside the cabin for having traction again and to continue his journey to his destination. With our system, drivers will be safe and will limit the risk of accident.
