Aperia Technologies Inc., a supplier of tire-inflation technologies for commercial vehicle tractors and trailers, announced the release of a new chrome cover for the Halo Tire Inflator.
While the chrome adds personality and practicality to accessorize the Halo Tire Inflator, it also plays a role in improving business for fleets, from driver retention to company pride, according to the Burlingame, Calif.-based company.
“Solutions such as lowering driver-eligibility requirements, including age, are being considered to help address the driver shortage, but including new features that drivers want on trucks is another opportunity to engage and retain drivers,” Aperia CEO Josh Carter said.
Aperia’s Halo Tire Inflator system — in use by 350 fleets — automatically keeps tires from falling below their target pressure range, allowing fleets to maximize tire life, reduce fuel consumption and slash operating costs. The chrome cover snaps into place in seconds and is retrofittable and compatible with all models of the Halo Tire Inflation Systems.
