Air Ride Vans Protect Your Freight
“Air ride vans,” “air-assisted suspensions” and “air-ride suspension shipping” all mean that the trucks used for shipping feature a suspension system that uses a compressor to inflate a bellows-like air spring for a smoother, more consistent ride. Electronic controls in air-ride vans mean the suspension system is self-leveling, which ensures that cargo is kept flat and stable throughout its journey. Just as you’d expect from an automobile with an air-ride suspension, vans with this feature offer a journey with fewer lumps and bumps, therefore reducing the chance of your freight being jolted or damaged in transit.
Adjustable Air Ride Suspensions To Keep Your Freight Safe
While good packaging is still the most important factor in how well your goods ship, air-ride vans offer an extra layer of peace of mind for anyone shipping delicate cargo. Not only do air-ride vans ensure a smoother, more level ride, they also mean the height of the load on the truck can be fully adjusted. For example, the truck can sit higher when crossing rough terrain. Modern air-ride vans are also hugely responsive, so they can be adjusted to the demands of changing weather and road conditions.
Air-ride vans can be easily lowered or raised to help with loading and unloading, especially where there is no conventional loading bay available. With Freight Rate Central, there is no need to worry about the size or weight of your items, either. FRC can help with any shipment, from 100 pounds to 100 tons, and as well as offering air-ride carriers to ease the journey, our fantastic customer service team will make your entire logistics experience as smooth and hassle-free as possible. Give our team a call at 855-372-7447 if you have any concerns or queries about pick up or delivery or about packaging your shipment.
