We use the Babaco TRUK-LOC V on high security loads.  A lock that CANNOT be shimmed, lost, cut, stolen, or forgotten.

Road Scholar spares little expense on equipment that ensures the safety of your freight, our drivers, and others on the road.  Bendix disc breaking solutions are a prime example

Like something from a Si-Fi film - the future is now with collision avoidance systems that help keep our trucks a safe distance from other vehicles and hazards

Rollover will no doubt damage your freight and can be a tragic event.  Electronic stability controls help protect the fright and prevent the accident
