Andyfreight installs JOST sensor system as standard

Within the road haulage business one of the worst scenarios is a trailer becoming detached from the tractor unit while travelling on the road. The potential for serious injury, and even death, is very real and should be minimised wherever possible. In order to ensure the safety of its drivers, and other road users, Andyfreight Ltd., based in Stourbridge, West Mid-lands, is specifying JOST sensor Fifth Wheel coupling systems as standard to all of its Mercedes Actros tractor units.

The haulage firm, which mainly runs Mercedes trucks, is currently oper-ating 25 articulated units,all of which are specified with the JOST fixed 5th wheel. Andy Pountney, Managing Director, comments:

"We wanted to find a system that would help our drivers maintain their excellent health and safety record andour previous experience with JOST equipment has shown it to be reliable and easy to use.”
