Norbert invests in soft docking system

Norbert Dentressangle has invested in Haldex’s Soft Docking system, hoping to reduce damage to its refrigerated vehicle fleet, decrease downtime, improve safety and reduce repair costs.

The system uses ultrasonic sensors linked to an electronic braking system to automatically activate trailer brakes as the distance to the loading dock becomes essential, which Norbert claims reduces the risk of damage both to the trailer and the dock.
