Aperia Technologies Inc., a supplier of tire management technologies that improve the safety and efficiency of commercial vehicle tractors and trailers, introduced a virtual training and support platform to continue to meet the needs of professional trucking fleets when in-person training and support is not possible.
“The demands on the trucking industry to move goods urgently across the country is significant, downtime is more costly than ever, yet in-person training and support is challenging with social distancing and shelter-in-place orders in place,” said Josh Carter, CEO of Aperia Technologies. “We recognize the critical role we play in providing the trucking industry with our products, services, and expertise during this crucial time, so we launched a virtual training platform to ensure uninterrupted support.”
With roadside breakdowns occurring every 10,000 miles, according to a recent American Trucking Associations (ATA) benchmarking report, optimally inflated tires are key in keeping trucks on the road and delivering vital goods and services.
In addition, the cost of an unscheduled roadside repair continues to increase. In fact, the average cost of a roadside repair is $450.
The training platform features product, maintenance, and tire pressure dynamics modules, as well as recommended learning paths and a certification program.
