Ryder System Inc. has signed an exclusive partnership with Aperia Technologies, supplier of tire inflation solutions for tractors and trailers, to make the Halo Tire Inflator solution a standard specification for Ryder’s heavy-duty commercial rental fleet.
Additionally, Halo will become Ryder’s preferred tire inflation solution for Ryder ChoiceLease customers and bundled offerings will also be available to Ryder SelectCare customers, the company reported. This latest Ryder offering signifies Aperia’s first exclusive partnership with a full-service leasing company for a bundled Halo purchase and installation.
Tire under-inflation remains an industry hazard for the eight million tractor/trailers on U.S. roadways. Ryder fleets, equipped with Halo, will maximize tire life and reduce fuel consumption based on automatic tire pressure management, the company said. Halo is self-powered, self-contained, and versatile, making for turnkey integration with the Ryder’s nationwide network of service facilities.
