Can we learn from disc brakes on tanker trailers?

Can we learn from disc brakes on tanker trailers?
The adoption of disc brake technology for articulated trailers has been slower in the UK than the rest of Europe. With no regulations making them a requirement, many operators feel that the additional purchase and maintenance costs outweigh the potential performance gains. However, the tanker industry typically specifies disc brakes as standard. JOST examines the benefits of disc brakes and asks if other sectors of the haulage industry can learn from tanker operators.

Tridec steering from JOST UK supports the DfT trial for longer articulated-trailers

Tridec steering from JOST UK supports the DfT trial for longer articulated-trailers
At the beginning of 2012 the Department for Transport (DfT) began a trial of up to 1,800 longer articulated-trailers. The new trailers offered increased capacity for the operators with the expectation of greatly reduced carbon emissions while also cutting running costs – boosting the UK economy. The trial stipulated that trailers must meet strict operational requirements and operators maintain detailed records to facilitate ongoing evaluation. Tridec steering systems have contributed to the design and manufacture of trailers that meet the turning circle requirements of the legislation.
