STRENGTHEN YOUR DRIVER WORKFORCE
In 2014, Bose completed a study with TCA member fleets Bison Transport, Freymiller, and Pottle's Transportation to understand and quantify the impact of reduction exposure to jarring and shaking on driver fatigue and pain. The 9-month long study demonstrated significant benefits from using the Bose Ride driver suspension system. The information below is based on the outcomes of the study "The Impact of Ride Quality on Truck Driver Health & Safety: A TCA Member Fleet Case Study," March 17, 2014*.
“Without a doubt, the Bose Ride system improved our drivers’ quality of life and allowed them to perform at a more optimum level.” - Garth Pitzel, Director Safety and Driver Development, Bison Transport
REDUCED DRIVER FATIGUE AND PAIN
Prior to using the Bose Ride system, almost half of study drivers reported suffering from daily fatigue and pain levels serious enough to interfere with their work. By dramatically improving ride quality, the Bose Ride® system eliminates this problem for nearly all of those drivers.
"I wasn't nearly as tired. I wasn't nearly as sore." - Company driver
Increased Safety Confidence
With the Bose Ride system, 71% of study drivers report they are more likely to be able to avoid a safety incident and have greater ability to see what is happening outside of their truck.
Longer Driving Careers
89% of drivers project that the added protection would enable them to have longer careers.
Better Home Time
64% of drivers reported more rapid recovery after road trips, and 71% having more energy to do the things they like to do in their off-time.
“I’m able to sit in the seat longer and I don’t have to stop as much. So it helps out timewise quite a bit” - Company driver
