TransWood Trucking Adds Meritor WABCO Braking Control and Stability Components to Entire 600-Plus Fleet

TransWood has equipped every tractor/trailer combination in its fleet of more than 600 vehicles with Meritor WABCO's braking control and stability components.

TROY, Mich. – Meritor WABCO Vehicle Control Systems is helping TransWood Trucking to operate its fleet more safely and efficiently.  

TransWood has equipped every tractor/trailer combination in its fleet of more than 600 vehicles with Meritor WABCO’s braking control and stability components.
             
Components being utilized by the fleet include the company’s ABS, which is easily diagnosed without additional equipment, tools or supplies. When service is required, the unique design allows for replacement of individual components to keep costs down, according to Meritor WABCO. Other advanced diagnostic PC tools, like the DataMaster and TOOLBOX Software are providing the fleet more complete trouble shooting, repair and general vehicle information.  Another technology saving TransWood from unnecessary spending every year is the company’s stability control system. According to TransWood, a single rollover could cost the company $160,000 in equipment alone.
      
Trailer-tractor information sharing or “trailer intelligence” is also becoming an integral part of the trucking industry. With Meritor WABCO’s InfoLink1 system, which TransWood has outfitted about one-third of its trucks with, they are able to monitor everything from tire pressure to truck speed to fuel status.
