Halvor Lines, Inc. announced last week it was outfitting all of its company trucks with in-cab satellite television.
The Superior, Wisc.-based company said it was installing EpicVue as part of its observance of National Truck Driver Appreciation Week.
“We heard about EpicVue at the Truckload Carriers Association Annual Convention earlier this year and decided to replace the annual raffle we held for drivers during National Truck Driver Appreciation Week with the installation of the in-cab satellite TV systems for all our company drivers,” said Ryan Fraley, vice president of Halvor Lines. “We like to invest in the happiness of our drivers since they show such dedication to Halvor Lines. They deserve the best, and as long as our drivers are satisfied, so are we.”
Halvor Lines began announcing the decision to equip over 300 company tractors with EpicVue by having dispatchers provide drivers with HBO headphones and a “Thank You” card telling them their satellite TV systems are going to be installed by the carrier’s staff.
The company provides transportation and logistics services across North America. It operates 360 power units and over 850 trailers hauling flatbed, dry van, decked van loads, and refrigerated services.
EpicVue in-cab satellite TV systems, including an antenna, DVR and 24-inch flat screen TV, is offered for fleets with 20 or more vehicles for $49 per month under a five-year contract, or $59 monthly for a three-year contract.
Recently, EpicVue introduced inMotion that allows one team driver to watch TV while the other is driving, and provides the capability to record a show while driving. EpicVue inMotion is available for an additional $10 per month per vehicle.
