What Makes Us One of the Safest Heavy Duty Truck ProvidersFreightliner Trucks Safety
Freightliner is constantly working to ensure that our products are among the safest heavy duty trucks on the road. Our advanced manufacturing, engineering, testing methodologies allow us to design, create, and validate safety features, giving drivers peace of mind while on the road. This approach of implementing safety measures through engineering, manufacturing, and testing is what makes us one of the safest heavy duty truck providers.
The engineering process is where we first begin to develop safety enhancements.
This team creates prototypes that provide a glimpse into the future of the trucking industry. Most recently, Daimler Trucks North America has released its proprietary suite of safety systems – Detroit Assurance®. Detroit Assurance allows customers to fully integrate their Detroit® powertrain and safety systems. Detroit Assurance received its inspiration from its parent company Daimler which showcased the Mercedes-Benz Future Truck 2025. Detroit Assurance will include features such as active braking assist, adaptive cruise and lane departure warning.
Our manufacturing process is where our safety innovations become a reality.
DTNA’s Truck Operating System (TOS) takes the lead when it comes to our dynamic manufacturing processes that result the safest heavy duty trucks. TOS is responsible for making sure that the high quality, cost-effective, safe trucks are delivered in a timely manner.
Testing is an integral part of our safety procedure.
We have a specific team who has been tasked with examining Freightliner’s safety features, and making sure that each truck meets driver needs. Our testing methodology includes utilizing a state-of-the-art wind tunnel, cold chamber, and shaker tests. These tests allow us to verify that our trucks can protect drivers during the harshest of weather conditions and tough enough to perform in all types of terrain.
Another key element to our testing methodology includes actual test drives as oppose to simulations. We drive millions of miles a year and learn about our trucks from each experience. This feedback is then utilized in our quest to provide the safest heavy duty truck on the market.
