Meiborg Brothers, the leading trucking company of Northern Illinois, is now installing the VORTEX™ Safety Lighting System in a 450-trailer fleet of Utility and Wabash dry-van trailers.
Manufactured by LED Lighting Inc. in Buffalo Grove, IL, and in partnership with CED National Accounts distributors, the VORTEX™ Safety Lighting System is an interior lighting solution that improves overall visibility and logistics safety throughout the cargo area. A patent-pending design utilizes the trailer’s ceiling-to-wall junction area to protect the VORTEX™ components during cargo loading and unloading. The result is even illumination that minimizes costly handling errors and increases safety.
After initial testing, Meiborg Brothers’ CEO Zack Meiborg stated, “We have specialized customers that have begun to request our trailers with the VORTEX™ system. In addition, we are increasing employee safety with the customized lighting systems and reducing our overall risk.”
The VORTEX™ Safety Lighting System is delivered in customized kits for trailer manufacturers and dealers. Each kit can be customized to meet the unique needs of any logistics operation. For trailer drops, an optional 120V power supply is available to energize the lighting system without connection to a tractor.
