Strategic Partnership: TRANSTEX & Nussbaum Transportation

It is with great pleasure that we highlight TRANSTEX’s valued partnership with Nussbaum Transportation, a leader in fleet efficiency and innovation. Based in Illinois, Nussbaum operates across the continental United States offering dedicated contract carriage and irregular route truckload services.

As a member of the SmartWay Transport Partnership program and winner of the 2019 SmartWay Excellence Award, Nussbaum works hard to achieve the highest fuel efficiency standards. They have trusted TRANSTEX’s EDGETM 2930T Skirt since 2017 to help them accomplish their goal. Nussbaum also added the EDGETM TopKit® to their aerodynamic package this last year. The addition of the TopKit® has reduced their maintenance costs.

After extensive testing of various aerodynamic solutions, Nussbaum selected TRANSTEX as its exclusive aerodynamic partner of choice. Happy with the performance and proven durability of TRANSTEX’s EDGETM products, Nussbaum will continue to outfit its new trailers with the E-TOPKIT and the E-2930T. The TopKit® is a lightweight aerodynamic rear end device that is EPA SmartWay Verified and CARB Compliant.

About Nussbaum Transportation

Nussbaum began in 1945 when founder Alden Nussbaum bought a small LTL trucking company based in Fairbury, IL and began providing early AM next day delivery service to its customers. In 1965, the company moved its operations to Normal, IL and added a full truckload division serving five states in the Midwest. A change in retailing and consumer buying habits in the late nineties drove Nussbaum to exit the LTL trucking segment to focus on full and multiple stop truckload and dedicated truckload services. The company is currently led by CEO Brent Nussbaum from its headquarters in Hudson, IL. With over five hundred employees, Nussbaum operates approximately four hundred fifty trucks and eleven hundred trailers in forty-eight states. Nussbaum has been widely recognized for its innovations, especially in the area of fuel efficiency, having helped to develop and bring attention to fuel efficient solutions for the trucking industry to combat rising fuel costs.

This year marks its 75th Anniversary in business.
