Leveraging Trailer Technology to Improve the Lifespan of Your Fleet
Great Dane’s century-plus legacy of success is a direct result of our commitment to growth through innovation and improvement. Great Dane has a rigorous testing and development program, focusing on research and development to meet the needs of our customers. Everything we do is designed to improve safety, enhance functionality, or increase the overall value of our trailers.
Customer feedback and demand is the main driver for Great Dane’s new innovations, products, and services. Our ultimate goal is to make customers more successful in their operations, using trailer technology to improve the lifespan of trailers and key components.
Trailer Innovations that Work Together
Innovation isn’t as simple as making one small component better or more efficient. Each piece of the trailer should work together to form a better product. This is why our R&D team focuses on the whole system, making sure that every component supports the overall goal: to make a lean, efficient trailer.
Trailer technology doesn’t always have to be flashy, either—sometimes it’s as simple as changing a material or using a different design. For instance, wood rot is a huge concern in reefers, causing costly trailer repairs. In response, we started building our refrigerated trailers completely wood-free. Just by changing the materials we use in our reefers, we eliminated the possibility of wood rot damage, reducing future trailer maintenance and repair costs.
