Prime adds Vorad warning system to fleet
Nov 1, 2002 12:00 PM
Prime Inc is installing Vorad systems on every new truck added to its fleet. A truckload carrier headquartered in Springfield MO, Prime has refrigerated, flatbed, and liquid bulk divisions serving customers throughout North America.
Being installed is the Eaton Vorad EVT-300 collision warning system, a high-frequency radar system that transmits radar signals from the front and sides of the truck, alerting drivers to take evasive action to avoid accidents. The system features technology that tracks up to 20 vehicles at a time and provides drivers with fast, precise warnings.
The SmartCruise option on the Vorad system enhances driver convenience and safety by maintaining driver pre-set speed and following intervals while cruise control is engaged. SmartCruise functions around curves and in adverse weather conditions while monitoring traffic on the other side of upcoming hills. For additional information, call Libby Ecker at Prime, Inc. at 417-866-0001, ext 3155 or visit the company's web site at www.primeinc.com.
