                    [post_content] => Autonomous trucking company TuSimple has achieved unicorn status on Wall Street with a fresh funding round that values the start-up at $1 billion.

The company said Wednesday it raised $95 million in a series D funding led by Sina Corp. and Composite Capital, a Hong Kong-based investment firm, as it prepares to expand its testing of self-driving semis on highways in Arizona, New Mexico and Texas.

“By the end of 2020 or early 2021 we think we think we can take the driver out of the cab on trucks,” said Chuck Price, chief product officer of TuSimple.

San Diego-based TuSimple is developing technology to allow shipping companies to operate self-driving class 8 tractor-trailers, potentially eliminating the need for drivers, the biggest expense facing trucking firms today, especially in a tight labor market. On average, shipping firms spend $2 per mile hauling goods, a cost TuSimple believes it could cut by 30 percent by eliminating the driver with autonomous trucks.

The money will help TuSimple expand its fleet of 12 test trucks to more than 50 by June. The company is currently testing autonomous semis on routes between Phoenix and Dallas. ”

                    [post_content] => EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – Local off-roaders can now feel a little more safe while making their way through the dunes thanks to the Texas Rescue Patrol’s new emergency vehicle.

The organization rolled out its new Polaris Ranger this week, aiming to expand its life-saving capabilities at Red Sands and all across the Borderland.

Officials say the vehicle, which can accommodate seven responders and one patient, is the first of its kind in the entire county.

It includes power steering, electrical outlets, ergonomic controls, and emergency equipment donated by Polaris.

“It will cut down our response time because we’re not going to have to worry so much about … (getting) stuck ourselves on a way to a call,” Volunteer Mike O’Connor said.

                    [post_content] => UPS has been delivering a new kind of automated mail - and it's not via email.

The parcel delivery company has revealed a collaboration with TuSimple. In a statement, they said that, since May, the autonomous truck company has been carrying UPS cargo on a 115-mile route between Phoenix and Tucson.

The future of mail delivery?

This Thursday, August 15, UPS Ventures announced that it has taken a minority stake in TuSimple, the self-driving truck technology company.

In the statement, UPS said:

"Throughout the ongoing tests, UPS has been providing truckloads of goods for TuSimple to carry on a North American Freight Forwarding route between Phoenix and Tucson, Arizona.

"The company initiated self-driving service in May 2019, with a driver and engineer in the vehicle."

Cutting shipping costs
As per Gizmodo, TuSpimple claims it can cut average costs of shipping in a tractor-trailer by up to 30 percent.

UPS Ventures Managing Partner Todd Lewis said, “UPS Ventures collaborates with startups to explore new technologies and tailor them to help meet our specific needs.”

“UPS is committed to developing and deploying technologies that enable us to operate our global logistics network more efficiently,” stated UPS Chief Strategy and Transformation Officer, Scott Price.

“While fully autonomous, driverless vehicles still have development and regulatory work ahead, we are excited by the advances in braking and other technologies that companies like TuSimple are mastering."

As the Verge reports, TuSimple's self-driving technology is built in-house and then implemented into Navistar trucks. The tech uses nine cameras and two LIDAR sensors to allow its vehicles to drive autonomously on the road.

                    [post_content] => Product quality must be backed by a solid relationship if trailer brands want to attract and keep owner-ops, small fleets as loyal customers. And how very loyal they can be.

ALBERT LEA, MN. As a custom truck show focused on working tractors and trailers that spend real time on the road hauling freight—rather than prepping for the next beauty contest—Shell Rotella SuperRigs is a showcase for dozens of successful owner-ops and small fleets who gather each summer to compare equipment and share tips and tricks for doing business, and for having a little fun at the same time.

And while sparkling tractors with amazing interiors draw most of the attention from contestants and onlookers, entries in the Tractor-Trailer Division pay great attention to the payload-carrying part of the rig as well. Trailer/Body BUILDERS stopped by to chat with several to discuss their trailer selection, and what trailer manufacturers might do to improve their products.

But it shouldn’t come as a surprise that everyone we spoke with cited their relationship with a trailer manufacturer or dealer as being just as important as equipment quality.

To haul “anything that's a flatbed load that needs to be kept dry and clean from the elements,” Dean DeSantis pulls a 2019 East Mfg. 49-foot flatbed with an Aero Conestoga tarp system, Alcoa aluminum wheels and Michelin tires.

                    [post_content] => Cleveland, Ohio – Rescue vehicle and commercial truck producer Spartan Motors Inc. has launched production at its Detroit Truck Manufacturing plant, marking the second major capacity expansion in June.

Earlier this month, the company bought General Truck Body in Montebello, California, giving it manufacturing capacity on the West Coast. And both of new facilities join a Pennsylvania expansion announced last year.

The Detroit plant will supply fabricated aluminum cabs for Spartan's fire trucks, as well as its cab and chassis product it supplies to more than 40 fire truck manufacturers.

“In addition to producing cabs designed for final stage manufacturing, this initiative further protects Spartan from potential supplier disruptions in our changing economic climate,” Spartan Motors President and CEO Daryl Adams said. “While we plan to further expand our supply base across the organization as part of our long-term strategic growth and financial initiatives, creating a captive channel cab manufacturer provides Spartan greater flexibility and an optimized cost structure to fuel additional, profitable growth.”

Adams said the move to more vertically integrate Spartan, providing efficiencies and savings, along with reduced material costs and freight savings that will be leveraged across the enterprise.

Located on five acres in Madison Heights, Michigan, the new facility will improve quality while reducing lead times by using flexible manufacturing technologies.

                    [post_content] => Houston-based Leslie Doggett Industries recently acquired privately held Truck Enterprises through its Doggett Truck Group.

Truck Enterprises, founded in 1980, is an authorized Western Star, Detroit Diesel and extreme heavy-duty trailer dealer located in El Paso TX and Carlsbad NM. The acquisition gives Doggett, which will operate the dealerships under the Truck Enterprises name, its third location in El Paso and first in Carlsbad.

“Doggett will roll out our independent used truck and trailer model through this acquisition, which will compliment and build on the celebrated history of Truck Enterprises created and nurtured by founders Lanny and Linda Golucke,” said William Doggett, the company’s general counsel. “Lanny will remain on as the leader of Truck Enterprises.”

The company said its goal is to grow the El Paso stores as it did in Little Rock AR with its Freightliner dealership, which was nominated by Successful Dealer magazine as one of five finalists for the best-run, heavy-truck dealership in the US. Doggett acquired all the Freightliner dealerships in Arkansas only 14 months ago.

“Doggett is pleased to expand our footprint to serve more customers in El Paso and to enter the Carlsbad market,” said Paul Burk, vice president of the Doggett Truck Group. “We are eager to implement the same initiatives and processes that have made Doggett successful and have been the foundation of our dynamic growth in other markets.”

                    [post_content] => Truck Trailers are non-automotive freight vehicles that are to be drawn by motor trucks. The truck trailer manufacturing industry comprises establishments primarily engaged in manufacturing truck trailers, truck trailer chassis, cargo container chassis, detachable trailer bodies, and detachable trailer chassis for sale separately.

The usage of fiber laser in manufacturing of truck trailers is a major trend in the truck trailer manufacturing industry. It is proven that usage of fiber laser doubles the productivity of trailer manufacturer’s metal cutting process. The advantage truck trailer manufacturers have by using fiber laser is that they can have a higher extent of in-house control over trailer production and save the expense of putting work out to sheet metal subcontractors. Another advantage is that they can optimize the processes of prototyping and design processes and bring new products to market faster. Yet another advantage of the fiber laser is that machining is much faster, while being cost-effective. Trailer manufacturer Indespension, at it’s factory in Bolton, Lancashire, England, replaced it’s ageing CO2 laser-powered machine with a with a Bystronic ByStar Fiber 6520 fiber laser profiling center, after which their productivity doubled.

                    [post_content] => It looks like something from the Transformer film series and is even called the “Avenger” by the manufacturer, but it’s just the latest addition to the Guelph Fire Department’s fleet.

The brand new pumper was received about a month ago from Rosenbauer America in Minnesota and was put into service this week.

Chief John Osborne says the truck is already getting some looks.

“A lot of people are pulling over and taking pictures, and coming in and asking about it,” he said.

“It is a whole new design that Rosenbauer America has brought out.”

Even with the sleek look, the fire truck is shorter from front to back and comes with a tighter steering radius, Osborne added.

He said that was important for Guelph.

“It allows us to get into the areas within the community that are a little bit smaller because intensification is the way we’re moving towards now and we needed a truck that was capable of getting into the smaller areas,” Osborne explained.

The truck also comes with a 360-degree camera system, it has about 20-25 per cent more storage space and it can hold an extra 1,000 litres of water compared to other pumper trucks.

Older trucks carry can carry just under 1,900 litres of water, whereas the Avenger model can carry almost 3,000 litres.

Osborne said the extra water allows firefighters to tackle fires more quickly.

“It does give us a lot more flexibility as far as how much of a fire we can put out and it also saves time because the crew doesn’t have to grab a hydrant,” he said.

The truck was purchased for $740,000, but Osborne said about $100,000 was saved because it was meant to be one of Rosenbauer’s demonstration trucks.

The purchase was covered through the city’s 2017 capital budget.

The fire department’s fleet currently consists of nine pumper trucks, one aerial truck and one tanker truck. The new truck is replacing a pumper that is reaching the end of its life cycle and will soon be put up for auction.

Osborne said their next purchase will most likely be made in 2020.

                    [post_content] => PPG’s F4949 CT Productive Chassis Primer Binder is a new and unique solution for priming blasted metal surfaces (trailers, truck chassis, machinery, etc.) – one that lets users build more units per day, with reduced labour, materials and energy.

On top of this, it delivers valuable long-term benefits to vehicle operators, in terms of paint film durability. As part of the world’s largest manufacturer of transportation coatings, engineers at PPG’s local headquarters in Clayton, Melbourne where able to source the latest technology building blocks from PPG’s global R&D group. This provided the catalyst for a no-compromise priming method that is unrivalled on the local market.

Resetting the benchmark

In the past, priming blasted metal surfaces meant selecting either a 1K primer or an epoxy primer. Both have downsides – 1K primers lack the performance of 2K technology and epoxy primers tend to have a lengthy curing time that can slow down production. However, the PPG developed, next generation polymer chemistry found in F4949 CT Productive Chassis Primer Binder, has reset traditional thinking.

Instead of having to choose between a 1K primer or an epoxy primer, it’s possible to get the best of both worlds. As a tintable primer, F4949 CT Productive Chassis Primer Binder is designed to be used with the DELFLEET Evolution tinter range to create 4949 Delfleet CT Productive Chassis Primer Mixed Colour. This makes the primer colour complimentary to the topcoat colour. Best of all, it has all the sought-after attributes of an epoxy primer (it lays down nicely and has excellent adhesion and anti-corrosion properties), combined with the film-build and speed of a two-pack polyurethane coating.

            [post_content] => Autonomous trucking company TuSimple has achieved unicorn status on Wall Street with a fresh funding round that values the start-up at $1 billion.

The company said Wednesday it raised $95 million in a series D funding led by Sina Corp. and Composite Capital, a Hong Kong-based investment firm, as it prepares to expand its testing of self-driving semis on highways in Arizona, New Mexico and Texas.

“By the end of 2020 or early 2021 we think we think we can take the driver out of the cab on trucks,” said Chuck Price, chief product officer of TuSimple.

San Diego-based TuSimple is developing technology to allow shipping companies to operate self-driving class 8 tractor-trailers, potentially eliminating the need for drivers, the biggest expense facing trucking firms today, especially in a tight labor market. On average, shipping firms spend $2 per mile hauling goods, a cost TuSimple believes it could cut by 30 percent by eliminating the driver with autonomous trucks.

The money will help TuSimple expand its fleet of 12 test trucks to more than 50 by June. The company is currently testing autonomous semis on routes between Phoenix and Dallas. ”
