Cardinal Logistics Management Corporation has announced that they will equip 300 new International tractors with Bendix’s collision mitigation system, Wingman Fusion.
The carrier is also equipping these tractors with the Bendix ESP Electronic Stability Program full-stability system, as well as the Bendix BlindSpotter Side Object Detection System.
Cardinal’s order expands on its recent purchase of 170 new Mack tractors and 300 International tractors in 2015 with Bendix Wingman Advanced – A Collision Mitigation Technology, Bendix ESP, AutoVue Lane Departure Warning (LDW) System from Bendix CVS, and BlindSpotter.
“Our drivers are true professionals who deserve every extra safety advantage we can provide,” says Mike Dennis, Cardinal vice president of maintenance.
“Nothing is more important than the safety of our drivers and everybody else on the roads. And the way the real world works is that you can’t always see danger coming, and no human can look everywhere at the same time.”
Cardinal is a leading third-party logistics provider serving the United States and Canada. Cardinal and its affiliates offer an integrated service platform to customers, including dedicated, irregular route truckload, full-service truckload brokerage, warehouse-based logistics, and managed transportation services. The carrier counts 3,600 tractors and 11,000 pieces of trailing equipment in its fleet, and employs more than 5,000 drivers and staff.
“We wanted a safety system that matches the future – specifically, a comprehensive collision mitigation technology that includes stationary vehicle braking – and Bendix Wingman Fusion is tailor-made,” Dennis says.
