Daimer Trucks Recalls New Freightliner, Highlights Dangers of Car Shipping Trucks

Dangers of Car Shipping TrucksDaimler Trucks North America (DTNA) is recalling 863 Freightliner trucks that use certain types of Goodyear Tires.

The affected trucks include model year 2017 Freightliner Cascadia, Business Class M2, and 122SD trucks manufactured in 2016 from Jan. 24 to Oct. 10, and equipped with Goodyear G399A LHS 295/75R22.5 Load Range G tires.

Whether this will affect auto transportation companies and their trucks, however, remains to be seen. If you are a driver affected by the recall, you have options.

The recall is expected to start January 6th, and DTNA will be notifying owners where they can take their rigs to get inspected.

Owners may contact DTNA customer service at 1-800-547-0712. DTNA’s number for this recall is FL-728.

The dangers of car shipping trucks

The recall first started with Goodyear back in October, but then it was a voluntary recall. Now, however, DTNA is going to be making it mandatory for anyone with those tires.

Faulty tires on long-haul trucks can lead to serious problems, especially for auto shippers. Shredded or blown tires can cause unsafe conditions and can lead to loss of loads.

The dangers of car shipping trucks are well-known, but tires can pose serious hazards. Blowouts can harm other drivers on the road and can lead to loss of control for a carrier.

Naturally, this is dangerous when the car shipper is on the road traveling at high speeds .If you are on the road with a car transport truck, always make sure to give them a wide berth. Commercial drivers have advanced training and know how to handle their trucks in that situation, but they cannot do everything by themselves. They need clear space in the case of blowouts.

Surprisingly, blowouts are relatively common in long-haul trucking. While we don’t have numbers on hand, anecdotal evidence is plenty to understand the dangers of car shipping trucks – and any long-haul truck, for that matter.

What to do if your car shipping truck has a blowout

If your carrier’s truck has a tire blowout, chances are your pickup or delivery window will be delayed. That is, until the tire is replaced. How long that will take depends on a number of factors, notably the carrier’s expertise and how close they are to civilization. Maintenance is important for auto shipping carriers and the drivers of them. They work hard to make sure their trucks are always in top shape.

However, accidents happen. If a blowout occurs while your vehicle is in transit, the carrier will notify your agent. They in turn will notify you. From there, you can discuss your options with them. If it is bad, a new truck may be needed, but that’s relatively rare.
