Halo Tire Management Review: ERL Intermodal Corporation says using Halo Connect is so intuitive that it’s second nature
ERL Intermodal is the epitome of the American dream. What started in 1979 as a 2-truck business in Utica, New York, is now 60 trucks strong connecting upstate New York to all major East Coast ports. Like most trucking fleets, ERL was looking to find ways to improve tire life and reduce debilitating tire-related downtime. The ability to quickly comprehend and integrate data with their existing telematics platform was a critical fleet requirement. So testing Aperia’s Geotab integration on their International trucks was also an important aspect of ERL’s technology evaluation.
After installing the Halo Tire Inflator and Halo Connect predictive tire management platform on a handful of trucks in 2019, ERL quickly recognized the overwhelming reduction in roadside calls and downtime. This benefit alone supported the business case for ERL to deploy the technology fleet-wide. The Halo Tire Management system is so simple to use and integrate into ERL’s business practices. In fact, this has ensured that ERL’s maintenance team and drivers remain engaged with the technology. This ensures that trucks leaving their terminals have healthy tires. Therefore, when issues occur over the road, they are addressed efficiently and economically as opposed to on the side of the road.
“Our drivers are able to scan the connect QR code to check tire health before leaving the yard. Now, our maintenance team and drivers work together to keep tires healthy. For that reason alone the system has paid for itself. Halo Tire Management is invaluable to our fleet.”
