Hirschbach & TRANSTEX Logo | New Partnership | 1,100 EDGE ELITE AERO SYSTEM | Trailer Aerodynamic Kit

Hirshbach Press Release | TRANSTEX Trailer Aerodynamic Kits

Hirschbach deploys 1,100 TRANSTEX® EDGE ELITE AERO™ SYSTEMS – Trailer Aerodynamic Kits

DUBUQUE, IowaFeb. 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ – Hirschbach Motor Lines, one of the nation’s most respected and forward-thinking refrigerated carriers, announced today a new partnership with TRANSTEX, a pioneer manufacturer of elite fuel-saving aerodynamic solutions for full trailer coverage.

As part of its mission to reduce its carbon footprint and leverage technology across their fleet, Hirschbach will deploy 1,100 EDGE ELITE AERO™ SYSTEMS across the country. TRANSTEX’s EDGE ELITE AERO™ SYSTEM is a three-piece trailer solution that improves fuel efficiency by 10.49%, or 12.09 gallons per 1,000 miles driven. Fleets can save $2,877 per trailer and get a 6-month ROI.

“Hirschbach is committed to modifying its carbon footprint for future generations. As good stewards, it is our commitment to improve fuel efficiency across our operations. Through analytical testing and in-house ROI calculations based on engineering data we evaluate the equipment deployed in our fleet,” says Nick Forte, Vice President of Maintenance at Hirschbach. “Recent track testing by TRANSTEX demonstrated the highest fuel-savings results for a trailer aerodynamic kit. The overall fuel performance of the EDGE ELITE AERO™ SYSTEM was substantial. A major concern for refrigerated carriers looking to implement rear-end aerodynamic devices is the soft seal around loading docks. Other devices interfere with the seal and cause compliance and food safety issues. The system’s simple design and no moving parts does not obstruct the seal.  Combined with the flexibility of the T-FLEX Blue Bracket, the system’s longevity was also a key factor in our decision to partner with TRANSTEX. This is a technology that can be championed by our drivers.”

Hirschbach currently operates 1,800 Class 8 trucks and 3,500 trailers and expects to continue its growth plans through the purchase of an additional 500 power units and 1,200 trailers in 2021.

TRANSTEX has always worked closely with its customers. “Hirschbach is known for their high quality of service and their strength in adopting the latest technology to optimize their operations.” says Mathieu Boivin, CEO and President of TRANSTEX, “This partnership offers strong support for our business, as it validates our continual investment in R&D by providing fleets with advanced value-added solutions. We look forward to contributing to Hirschbach’s Green Fleet Strategy and helping shape the future of transportation aerodynamics.”

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.

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.
