Prime Drivers See Sign of Appreciation
Oct 1, 2000 12:00 PM, MODERN BULK TRANSPORTER STAFF
Prime Inc, an international refrigerated, flatbed, and liquid bulk truckload carrier headquartered in Springfield MO, recently constructed a 12-foot electronic sign to welcome its drivers. As drivers enter the company's terminal, they see their names in lights.
When a truck nears the company's main gate, a sensor reads the signal from a transponder mounted on the truck's window. The signal then is relayed to Prime's main computer system, where the truck number and driver's name are identified. Using custom software designed for the project, the sign displays the driver's name in lights as the truck enters the property.
Constructed with a bronze metallic automotive acrylic finish base, the sip features a low-voltage electronic display. The interface with Prime's computer system was designed and developed by the company's computer department.
