: Improving Fleet Productivity
Automatic tire chain systems can be discussed in two ways: 1) The physical properties of the system, and 2) What the system provides the user.
Do you need to improve your transportation business? Maybe, instead of tweaking bits and pieces you should re-consider your entire business model. Or, at least look upon your business from new perspectives. Here is why!
Onspot automatic tire chains can be used on several different types of vehicles; trucks, busses, coaches, rescue vehicles (like ambulances and fire trucks), and etc. Occasionally, customers come to us for help finding a solution where Onspots can be mounted on a new type of vehicle. One such example, is the Dodge Ram. While a common application in North America, the Ram chassis is a less common Onspot application in Europe.
The need for transporting goods and services is constantly increasing in our society. It can be products on the way to the stores, parts on the way to a factory, waste transported from your home to the recycle center or people going from one town to another. In almost everything we do, a transport is involved. When a personal car is not enough, most transports move by trucks or buses.
When purchasing a new vehicle, 4x4 is a common option to consider. No wonder, it’s a familiar and well-tried solution with good features for safer driving – but it’s easy to ignore its weaknesses believing there’s no better alternative.However, when thinking about situations where traction is crucial for your operations, you may conclude that 4x4 is not the perfect solution, but rather a compromise.
It comes every year, but it surprises us every time and often poses severe problems – of course we are talking about the winter.
Everyone involved in the transportation industry knows that a lack of road maintenance and poorly equipped trucks can cause major problems and increased costs. We cannot influence the weather but we can adapt our business to the weather and to the slippery conditions.
Properly equipped vehicles adapted to different weather conditions and recommendations or laws may be crucial to ensuring that the shipment can be delivered as agreed. Many countries also have legal requirements for both winter tires and snow chains.
