What Makes Freightliner One of the Safest Truck Brands?

When in the market for a truck, there are many things to consider such as price, operating life, return on investment, and most importantly, safety. And among major truck manufacturers, Freightliner definitely stands out for being one of the safest truck brands on the road. Among other things, the company has utilized new advances in technology to maximize the safety of the driver, reduce the risk of accident, and make the driving experience more enjoyable.

Comfort and Safety

Discomfort can distract you, a bad sleep can leave you tired and not as alert, and in general not being comfortable is unpleasant. That is why one of Freightliner’s goals in designing a truck to be as safe as possible is making the driving experience pleasant and comfortable. The seats in the Cascadia and Cascadia Evolution are several inches taller, wider, and longer than other brands in order to better accommodate those of different sizes. The cab is equipped with sound dampening to reduce the noise from the engine and to allow the driver to remain more alert. Paired with the spacious sleeping accommodations, this helps to blocks outside noise and allow the driver to stay properly rested.

Technological Precautions

Virtual Technician: Many things can go wrong with a truck after a lot of wear and tear, and this feature can help to identify a problem that may show up on your dashboard and assess if it is something that should be addressed immediately or if it can be dealt with at the end of the day or end of the route.

Visibility Fleet Software: This feature tracks information such as fuel usage, mileage, idle time, and equipment data to predict and fix issues before they arise on each truck in a fleet.

Zonar On-Board Tablet: This tablet tracks hours of service, provides truck specific navigation, guides drivers through inspections, and records inspection information.
