Aperia’s Halo Tire Management suite combines self-powered tire pressure automation hardware with a machine-learning analytics platform designed to deliver powerful operational, safety, and sustainability improvements to commercial trucking fleet owners, according to the release. The technology aims to improve the fuel economy of traditional diesel vehicles and extend the range of electric vehicles, which gained the attention of Lime Rock New Energy, which specializes in providing private equity growth capital to companies with a focus on sustainability.

“We partnered with Aperia because they offer a compelling value proposition to their customers and deliver a positive impact via multiple pathways,” said Lime Rock New Energy Director Blair Barlow. “LRNE is excited to support Josh and his team’s mission to accelerate the shift toward a more sustainable transportation sector by providing a tangible and immediate reduction in fuel usage and tire waste in the commercial trucking industry.”
