Irish company Prime Transport Solutions (PTS) has appointed Perth-based transport equipment specialist WA Bos as a new distribution partner for Australia.
“This provides us with a fantastic platform to supply and service our new customers across Australia,” said David White, CEO and Managing Director at PTS – emphasizing the new collaboration would take both lead time and cost out of the supply chain and allow PTS to provide local after sales support.
Prime Transport Solutions is known for the design and manufacture of a new type of automatic landing leg that replaces the classic hand-winding mechanism with a pneumatic piston and locking pin system.
According to White, the product has the potential to become a “game changer” in the commercial road transport market. “The PTS50 positively touches almost every operational aspect of a fleet – be it driver recruiting or retention, safety, maintenance, aerodynamics, idling reduction time, efficiency and even space.”
Reportedly, the PTS50 will lead to a 97 per cent decrease in engine idle time and driver downtime when carrying out the process of lowering or raising the landing the legs pneumatically – reducing a three-minute cycle time to a five-second process.
