Dynamic development: Pilot tests advance smart tanker utility

Scour the exhibit hall floor at any truck show, and you’ll spot every solution needed to operate an extremely efficient fleet. The rub, says Brent Hickman, senior manager for equipment, maintenance, and fleet sales at Pilot Company—which boasts a fleet of nearly 1,800 tank trailers—is you'd need 12 subscriptions and nine people to manage them.

The search for one solution to unite them all led Hickman to Drōv Technologies’ all-inclusive AirBoxOne—an advanced electronics and pneumatics control platform with incredbile connectivity, expandability, and functionality.
