JNJ Express Equips Bendix® Wingman® FusionTM and Air Disc Brakes; Emphasizes the Importance of Industry Collaboration in Making Transportation Safer

Safety successes shouldn’t be kept secret.

“A network is the strongest thing we can have to support safety on the roads and across the trucking industry,” said Ken Sutton, director of safety at JNJ Express. “You learn what’s happening with other companies, and in other places, and that helps everyone develop strategies and expertise. People and fleets learn together: If one company is safe, it’s important that they share that information with others to create a safer environment for the whole motoring public.”

Based in Memphis, Tennessee, JNJ Express backs that philosophy through active participation in events and organizations like the Tennessee Trucking Association and the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA), as well as its own efforts to put safe drivers in safer trucks. The safety-award-winning transportation and logistics provider equips its vehicles with Bendix’s ADB22XTM air disc brake system, as well as Bendix’s flagship driver assistance system, Wingman® FusionTM.

“We’ve got families that depend on their loved ones coming home, so whatever we can do to give our drivers an advantage and keep them safer, along with everyone else on the roads, we’re going to do it,” Sutton said. “We’ve been doing business with Bendix for a long time, and we’ve seen the results that show these latest technologies are helping us make our vehicles safer.”

Bendix is the North American leader in the development and manufacture of active safety, air management, and braking system technologies for commercial vehicles.
