Stoughton Trailers' newly designed rear underride guard received praise from Heavy Duty Trucking on Sunday night, when the magazine named the company's innovation one of its 2017 Top 20 Products at the American Trucking Associations' Technology & Maintenance Council Annual Meeting & Transportation Technology Exhibition in Nashville, Tenn.
The rear underride guard prevents vehicles from sliding underneath the trailer in the event of an accident. The article says magazine editors select products based on their level of innovation, ability to address significant industry issues, and potential benefit to the bottom line. A panel of HDT current and former Truck Fleet Innovators and maintenance executives who are active in the Technology & Maintenance Council then weight in to determine the final 20.
Companies whose products made the cut were honored at an awards presentation during the TMC Annual Meeting's opening night on Sunday evening.
