Commercial vehicles rooftop snow cleaning system is on the way to USA
Snowstorms and heavy snow fall have historically plagued many states, mostly those located in the Northeast and Midwest. Winter storms occur all over the country, but the “snowbelt,” stretching across the Great Lakes from Minnesota to Maine, receives the brunt of winter storms.
Cities such as Buffalo, New York City, Milwaukee and large areas of Pennsylvania and Detroit, Ohio, NJ experience snowfalls that strand residents in knee-deep or hip-deep snow.
One of the sectors that has been affected by the issue of heavy snowfall are the carrier and logistics companies. Owning huge fleet of trucks and their regular maintenance is a major concern for truck owners. Specially in the winter season, when there is heavy snowfall. During such situations, truck trailers get covered with thick layers of snow and removing it is a huge time and cost consuming process.
On an average it takes more than 30 minutes to remove the layer of snow from the rooftop of truck trailer. Apart from the downtime cost, a huge amount is invested in either heavy machinery or manual labour for the process. Hence leading to monetary loss, downtime and many times injuries to the person involved in the process. Most trailer rooftops cannot be walked on anyway not to mention the OSHA regulation forbidding the climbing onto a trailer roof!
