Trailer side skirts provide an aerodynamic benefit that is nearly impossible for motor carriers to ignore. Initially, EPA SmartWay ratings and CARB compliance requirements gave operators the impetus to begin considering skirts. Today, paybacks of 6 to 15 months have caused most carriers to begin installing trailer skirts. SAE Type II testing found fuel savings of up to 7.35 percent for the Transtex design and Wind Tunnel data gave 5 percent.
Carriers can expect anywhere from 4 to 6 percent fuel savings. With more then 400 loyal customers, our users include Averitt Express, Celadon, Covenant Transport, Saia, TCSI-Transland and Werner Enterprises because of our skirt’s unparalleled performance and reliability. Transtex has the highest level of customer satisfaction in the industry.
