Chrysler places order for pneumatic landing gear

Truck News

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. — Prime Transport Solutions has announced Chrysler has placed an order for its pneumatic trailer legs and is considering retrofitting its entire 1,295-trailer fleet.

“I said it before and I will say it again and again, the PTS50 positively touches almost every part of costs attached to operating a trailer fleet from driver recruiting or retention to safety and maintenance, aerodynamics enablement, idling reduction time or efficiency and even space,” said Simon Bois, executive vice-president and general manager, Americas, with PTS.

Chrysler operates a private fleet of about 1,295 trailers in the US and Canada. Its trailer drop requirements can reach 20 per trailer each day.

Truck News wrote about the pneumatic landing gear from PTS after this year’s Technology & Maintenance Council meetings. You can read that report here.
