Legacy’s four EARTHLIFTs contribute to precise work performed at the busy shop where a lot is riding on the finished product

Heavy duty vehicle lift leader Stertil-Koni, known for its award-winning hydraulic bus lifts and truck lifts, has announced that Idaho-based Legacy Classic Trucks – recognized as one of the top vehicle restoration companies in the nation – has selected and is currently using Stertil-Koni heavy duty lifting systems to give new life to historic vehicles.

Recently, Legacy Classic Trucks landed a contract for a multi-year restoration project upgrading 33, 1937 White Motor Company Model 706s tour buses. Each of these 80+-year-old vehicles will be transformed from gas-powered buses into environmentally-friendly hybrid vehicles.

Explained Legacy CEO Winslow Bent, “By updating the buses to an electric hybrid system, they will have a much lower carbon footprint. Adding regenerative braking will charge the batteries during downhill descents.”

Coincidently, this braking process is much like the Active Energy Retrieval System (AERS) of the Stertil-Koni EARTHLIFT – the “green” Mobile Column Lift – chosen by Bent to assist with the refurbishment project. These portable lifts safely support the iconic buses so specially trained technicians can modernize the fleet.

Legacy’s four EARTHLIFTs contribute to this precise work performed at the busy shop where a lot is riding on the finished product. Here’s what’s unique about EARTHLIFT:

  • Columns made with 98 percent recyclable components with 100 percent recyclable batteries;
  • Models and Capacities: ST 1085, 18,500 lbs. or ST 1100, 22,000 lbs.;
  • Safe mechanical locking system with overload protection and synchronization; and
  • Powered by AERS, each lift achieves 5 percent more lifting cycles at maximum lifting load, thus providing up to 50 lifting cycles without recharging.

How Bent discovered Stertil-Koni’s EARTHLIFT Mobile Column Lifts is no joke.

“Two or three years ago Jay Leno showed me his lifts,” noted Bent. “If I had sucked it up then and spent the money then, I would be ahead of the game. As soon as I went ahead and got the lifts, it was ‘why did I not do this before?’”

Once the Mobile Column Lifts were purchased, Bent and his crew were pleased with the results. “You do heavy work in a transit facility, but in a shop like mine you do heavy and precision work,” said Bent. “The EARTHLIFT is way better than our previous lift. I have expensive trucks, why hoist them on an old immobile two-post? I’m raising vehicles that are irreplaceable.”

Helping to make it all happen were Stertil-Koni’s Westcoast Regional Sales Manager, Ron Reazer and National Sales Manager, Rick Palmer.

Noted Reazer, “Our customers are primarily in industrial fields and include transits, cities, municipalities, and towns. This was a unique opportunity to leverage our tremendous expertise in reliable hydraulic lifting technology to a whole new arena – the rebuilding of vintage vehicles. Winslow said he has discovered significant time and cost savings with his four new lifts.”

“Normally it takes 10-hours to remove the body from a frame. With the EARTHLIFT it’s faster, safer and even more precise. You can move the lift where you need it. You don’t need to move the vehicle to the lift. You go where the job is. Now we get the same work done in three to four hours.”

He continued, “We got EARTHLIFTs purely for the bus restoration project, but now that they are here we are realizing all the things we can do with them,” he noted. Today, the Legacy crew is able to lift vehicles never before thought possible. Recently, he replaced a tire on a trailer carrying an 8.5-ton military vehicle and completed maintenance on an amphibious WWQII duck boat.

With a long list of future projects, Legacy Custom Trucks plans to build its own larger facility near its currently rented shop, and Bent has already set the plans into motion, “We will be ordering more Stertil-Koni Mobile Column Lifts,” said Bent.

ClipperCreek, a worldwide leader in Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) that continues to lead the Electric Vehicle Charging Station industry in customer value, has announced a new low price on its access controlled Liberty-enabled CS Charging Station.

Since its introduction in 2010, the Liberty-enabled CS Charging Station has been ClipperCreek’s flagship access control model, utilizing access codes to provide flexible access control and cost recovery options for station owners while maintaining low operating costs and reliable charging in commercial applications. Pricing for the Liberty-enabled CS Series has been reduced for all product configurations available from 16A to 80A.

A licensing and manufacturing agreement with Liberty Access Technologies combined with manufacturing process improvements allowed for cost reduction of materials and manufacturing, enabling ClipperCreek to pass the cost savings on to customers. “It’s an excellent opportunity for ClipperCreek and our customers,” said ClipperCreek’s President, Founder, and Sole Owner, Jason France. “Purchasers of our charging stations are attracted by the unique benefits of the rugged CS design and reliable access control that does not rely on a network connection as most access control charging stations do. A price reduction further enhances an already compelling value proposition and will lead to further market penetration of commercial ClipperCreek charging stations,” concluded France.

“The price reduction was made possible by a variety of factors including increasing purchasing power with suppliers, bringing manufacturing in-house, and the acquisition of software licensing from Liberty,” said Will Barrett, Director of Sales for ClipperCreek, Inc. “We are always striving to bring additional value and flexible solutions to our customers.”

New lower pricing is effective immediately and inquiries for Liberty-enabled CS charging stations can be made at www.clippercreek.com or by calling the ClipperCreek customer service center 877-694-4194.

American Trucking Associations For-Hire Truck Tonnage Index increased 6.6% in all of 2018 – the largest annual gain since 1998

“The good news is that 2018 was a banner year for truck tonnage, witnessing the largest annual increase we’ve seen in two decades,” said ATA Chief Economist Bob Costello. “With that said, there is evidence that the industry and economy is moderating as tonnage fell a combined total of 5.6% in October and November after hitting an all-time high in October.”

Trucking serves as a barometer of the U.S. economy, representing 70.2% of tonnage carried by all modes of domestic freight transportation, including manufactured and retail goods. Trucks hauled 10.77 billion tons of freight in 2017. Motor carriers collected $700.1 billion, or 79.3% of total revenue earned by all transport modes.

ATA calculates the tonnage index based on surveys from its membership and has been doing so since the 1970s. This is a preliminary figure and subject to change in the final report issued around the 10th day of the month. The report includes month-to-month and year-over-year results, relevant economic comparisons and key financial indicators.

MANN+HUMMEL partners with Sierra Wireless to provide real-time reporting to reduce equipment damage and repair costs.

MANN HUMMEL has selected Sierra Wireless’ Smart SIMs and AirVantage? IoT Platform to connect and manage global deployments of Senzit, the company’s new predictive maintenance platform developed to increase uptime for industrial and agricultural fleets.

The buildup of dust in a vehicle engine’s air filter can cause massive damage and lead to expensive repairs or replacements. With the cost of an engine replacement often exceeding $100,000 for industrial and agricultural vehicles, monitoring air filters and engine health is critical to operations.

MANN+HUMMEL’s Senzit solution uses IoT connectivity services from Sierra Wireless to ensure fleet managers have full visibility into their fleet’s dust load, engine hours and equipment location. With Senzit’s real-time monitoring capabilities, fleet managers can schedule maintenance only when vehicles require it, avoid unnecessary downtime due to engine damage and accurately track a vehicle’s operating hours and location – all through a mobile app and web portal.

“Our customers rely on Senzit to provide up-to-date, accurate information about their vehicle’s dust load and remaining filter lifetime,” said Charles Vaillant, chief technology officer, MANN+HUMMEL. “By working with Sierra Wireless to add IoT connectivity to our solution, we’re helping fleet managers reduce downtime and save as much as $4,200 per machine, per year.”

To connect and manage their solution, MANN+HUMMEL chose Sierra Wireless’ Smart SIMs and AirVantage IoT Platform. The Smart SIM’s global coverage and remote operator provisioning capabilities allow MANN+HUMMEL to quickly and easily deploy their predictive maintenance platform worldwide, without changing the device’s SIM card. With intelligent network selection and resilience to outages, Smart SIMs ensure that Senzit stays online and fleet operators stay connected.

“MANN+HUMMEL needed an IoT partner that could help them integrate, scale and manage reliable global connectivity,” said Marc Overton, senior vice president and GM of IoT Services, Sierra Wireless. “Our solution connects their devices in the field and delivers actionable insights to a cloud platform, ensuring that MANN+HUMMEL can offer a responsive, easy-to-use predictive maintenance platform to improve their customers’ bottom lines.”

Ryder has partnered with several innovative start-ups to provide the technologies that bring what was once considered the warehouse-of-the-future to life.

Ryder System announced today the successful transformation of Ryder smart warehouses in the Miami, Dallas, and Chicago markets. These transformed warehouses – or showcase sites – deliver advanced automation, flexible and instantly scalable operations, real-time visibility, and a customer-centric experience.

The Ryder smart warehouse showcase sites feature advanced automation, such as state-of-the-art robotics; autonomous vehicles and drones; sensors and automatic identification tools; and wearable technology, like smart glasses and ring scanners.

Ryder has identified the technology below as definitive benchmarks of an effective smart warehouse, and each area of innovation is already delivering significant improvements for customers:

  • Robotics – The implementation of robotics throughout a Ryder-managed warehouse produced a 25-percent increase in productivity and 20-percent operating savings, simply by reducing travel time in the warehouse, which can account for 30 percent of an employee’s shift.
  • Drones – At a Ryder customer warehouse, drones successfully scanned pallets and locations in 20 minutes, compared to a manual scan which took 90 minutes. Additionally, a cycle count on the entire warehouse took just three hours versus two days. The drone can also identify available pallet locations and verify product placement.
  • Sensors – Identification tools provide real-time asset location and enable performance management. When implemented throughout a Ryder facility, productivity and cost savings increased more than 25 percent.
  • Wearables – When Ryder deployed smart glasses at a customer warehouse to improve picking processes, the time it took to pick and scan inventory decreased by five to seven seconds per item and improved efficiency by 33 percent.

“We are evaluating advanced technology and automation solutions that require minimum investment but deliver maximum return,” said Steve Sensing, Ryder President of Global Supply Chain Solutions. “We focus on technologies that are mobile, flexible, and scalable, so they can flex with changing demands. As Ryder customers continue to face increasing omni-channel fulfillment demands, rising consumer expectations, and a nationwide warehouse labor shortage, we will continue to innovate and automate the parts of the process that make sense.”
