PepsiCo North America Beverages has named SAF-Holland as a Supplier of the Year for its introduction of the new CBX40 with Auto-PosiLift trailer slider air suspension. The award was presented during the 2013 PepsiCo National Fleet/Other Goods & Services Training Summit & Trade Show.
Used on PepsiCo’s beverage route delivery trailers, the new SAF suspension is credited with contributing directly to the company’s environmental sustainability goals of reduced fuel consumption and reduced tire wear.
The CBX40 with Auto-PosiLift was initially developed for multi-stop beverage distribution fleets and other varying load fleet operations. The system features an electronic control unit supplied by Meritor WABCO. A sensor in the system’s air spring supply line reads air spring pressure and determines whether to automatically raise the front axle or leave it in the down position.
