“Meritor WABCO is the leader in trailer ABS and our relationship with Wabash National – along with the honor of receiving this award four consecutive years – further proves our ability to provide top quality supply chain performance,” said Mark Melletat, director, Trailer Systems, Meritor WABCO. “We were the first to provide real-time data communication between the tractor and trailer via our InfoLink system, which is used by Wabash National today.
