Bullet Express is adding 32 new trucks to its operation each equipped with Wheely-Safe’s intelligent tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS).
Bullet Express Goes for Wheely-Safe TPMS on All New Trucks
The new vehicles, a mix of DAF XF and CF tractor units and Mercedes-Benz Actros rigids are being put into service via a three-year full repair and maintenance contract hire agreement through Asset Alliance Group. Bullet Express specified the Wheely-Safe technology in order to improve safety, reduce downtime and help cut fuel costs at a time when diesel prices are soaring.
Bullet Express runs a very busy fleet, working on a variety of supply chain logistics solutions, including express pallet work, contracts with aviation partners and container transportation out of the docks at Grangemouth and Greenock. It’s essentially a 24/7 operation. In order to ensure best practice across Bullet Express's fleet, it’s important for all their trucks to be running on tyres at optimal pressures. To upgrade their fleet, Bullet Express is to install the Wheely-Safe TPMS technology on all new vehicles.
Bullet Express has specified Wheely-Safe’s external TPMS sensors, which replace the valve cap and auto-pair with an in-cab solar receiver. The company’s drivers will also be equipped with handy Pressure and Brake Temperature Checkers to get accurate readings without the hassle of connecting a pressure gauge to the valve. Safety is the absolute priority for Bullet Express, and this system will ensure it always have tyres running at the right pressures helping to prevent potentially dangerous blowouts. Increased fuel efficiency is another added bonus as well.
All fitting is being carried out by Asset Alliance, with Wheely-Safe providing training for the Bullet Express drivers on how best to use the system. The business is also considering adding Wheely-Safe’s world-leading wheel security technology to its fleet as the new trucks continue to arrive. Bullet Express provides comprehensive supply chain logistics and storage solutions to customers throughout the UK, Europe and worldwide.
