Increased usage of more capable electric trucks and alternative power solutions reduces environmental impact.

OBJECT AND PEDESTRIAN DETECTION

Running safe operations is a top priority in all stages of the wood industry supply chain.

Advanced technology and systems can help mitigate incidents occurring.

  • Lighting systems mark the way
  • Sensor systems assist the driver with spatial awareness.
  • Telematics systems record and report activity in real time.
