Andrews Logistics Inc (ALI) has acquired 40 new Peterbilt trucks. According to J Darron Eschle, chief executive officer of Andrews Logistics, the new vehicles feature anti-rollover stability systems and anti-lock brakes, making the new units a major enhancement to ALI’s ongoing safety initiatives.

ALI also purchased 35 single-compartment stainless steel tank trailers and 45 multi-compartment aluminum tank trailers. The stainless steel trailers include tandem-axle roll stability support systems, and the aluminum trailers feature full-length overturn protection, anti-lock brakes, and anti-rollover stability systems.

“Besides offering state-of-the-art safety features, our new trucks also meet all of the EPA’s 2010 emissions requirements, which means they’ll help ensure clean air at the same time they make the roads safer,” said Eschle.

Earlier this year, the National Tank Truck Carriers association (NTTC) recognized ALI for outstanding safety achievement in five categories, including the organization’s top prize, the Outstanding Performance Trophy.
