ORLANDO, Fla. — Par Logistics Management Systems has partnered with tire pressure monitoring provider PressurePro to provide a real-time tire pressure management system, the companies have announced.
At the Technology and Maintenance Council (TMC) meetings here this week, John Penizotto, director of sales, truck and trailer products with Par Logistics, said the companies now provide the first real-time tire pressure management system available in the trucking industry. The system combines Par Logistics’ fleet management system that offers trailer location, temperature, fuel levels, door activity and other information with PressurePro’s tire monitoring capabilities.
Penizotto explained that fleets will now be able to receive automated alerts via e-mail or text message when a tire is under- or over-inflated.
“We are proud to be integrating our technology with that of Par’s,” said Phillip Zaroor, president and CEO of PressurePro. “PressurePro continues to be committed to bringing the best possible TPM solutions to the market, with the latest in cutting edge technologies. This partnership allows us to do just that, bringing to the market a genuinely complete solution.”
If you’re operating a reefer fleet, PressurePro’s system can draw its power from the reefer battery. For non-refrigerated tractor-trailer units, a lithium battery can power the system for about five years, Zaroor explained. It costs about $50 to replace the battery. A monitor is mounted inside the cab so the driver can check his tire pressures at any given time. He will also receive alerts when a tire loses pressure. The fleet manager, using Par Logstics’ fleet management software will also be notified.
