High-Flying Reddaway Customers

What's 200 feet long, floats in the air and puts a smile on people's faces? It's the Goodyear Blimp, one of the best known and most loved corporate icons in America.

For almost 90 years, these slow-moving, high-flying dirigibles have served as Goodyear's airborne ambassadors.

Some Reddaway customers in California became part of the very select group of people able to say that they were passengers who traveled on board a blimp. On March 7, they climbed into the sky aboard the Spirit of America, based at Goodyear's Carson flight facility, located between Long Beach and downtown Los Angeles.

"As a valued supplier to Goodyear, they generously provided us with this opportunity," said Reddaway Area Sales Director Mark Wright. "We, in turn, show our appreciation to some Reddaway customers in this region by taking them up in the blimp."

"Five customers and one Reddaway representative went up on each of the six flights," recalled Randy Gardner, Account Manager.

"It's really a special event. I know that a lot of screensavers and computer desktops now feature a new photo of grinning customers with the blimp floating in the background."

Only a few Reddaway customers had the opportunity to experience the thrill of lazing along the California coast in a Goodyear Blimp--but every customer has the opportunity to experience remarkable next- and two-day delivery services provided by the award-winning Reddaway team.

 

 

   
Steer Clear . . . Clear?

Some minor changes to your driving habits will help you steer clear of collisions with other vehicles sharing the road with you.

One of the safety fundamentals followed by professional truck drivers is constantly to monitor the space "cushion" in front of them.

They try to always allow enough room to stop safely or steer around problems ahead.

Cars frequently dive into those cushion areas which instantly eliminates the safe-stop space a truck requires.

THE PHYSICS: A truck takes about three times the stopping distance of a car. Truck brake systems work more slowly than the brake systems in cars where braking begins the instant the pedal is pushed down.

In a truck, the length of the vehicle and mass of the brake components cause a delay of about a half second before braking begins. At 60 mph, that adds almost 50 feet to the braking distance.

Stay safe by keeping a cushion in front of you and don't take the cushion of the truck next to you by diving in front of it.

Respecting that cushion is a proven way to steer clear . . . clear?
