Lowering Cost-Per-Mile with Trailer Aerodynamics

Todd P. McGuire, Vice President of Sales at TRANSTEX, joined Jamie Irvine to talk about “Aerodynamics for Commercial Trailers.”

During this episode of Heavy Duty Parts Report, they discussed lowering cost-per-mile, an important point for many fleets. With additions like trailer skirts, fleets can not only lower fuel consumption, but also reduce fuel emissions!

The amount of fuel savings that fleets can enjoy is dependent on several factors like driver experience and load hauled. However, trailer aero offers a huge potential to save money by increasing efficiency and reducing operating costs.

Fleets have the opportunity to equip their trailers with aerodynamic systems for even better results. These consist of packaging devices like side skirts, mud flaps, and rear-end devices together for higher fuel savings.

TRANSTEX’s very own system, the EDGE ELITE AERO SYSTEM (EEAS), was recently tested through an independent third party. Their fuel savings results equaled 10.49%, or 12.09 gallons per 1,000 miles driven. With the EEAS, fleets can save $2,877 per trailer and get a 6 month ROI.

Another key advantage is that the EDGE ELITE AERO SYSTEM requires no driver interaction.

Jamie and Todd cover other topics like reducing harmful emissions, OEM support, aftermarket sales, and more. Listen to the full interview here to learn more about the many benefits of aero for your fleet. When you’re done, make sure to participate in our drawing for a free set of EDGE Skirts!

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.

TRANSTEX in Transport Topics: Options Expand for Trailer Aerodynamics.

Transport Topics interviewed TRANSTEX and our customers for their article “Options Expand for Trailer Aerodynamics!”

Here’s what Ron Hall, C.R. England’s Vice President of Equipment, had to say:

“C.R. England began installing the skirts, manufactured by TRANSTEX, four or five years ago after being dissatisfied with warranty support for skirts supplied by a different manufacturer.

Solid durability and flexibility are essential in trailer skirts because they tend to take a lot of impact.

Bracket design that enables the skirt to flex on impact and return to form while maintaining needed rigidity is crucial.”

“What’s the enemy of a trailer? It’s vibration,” said Mathieu Boivin, TRANSTEX’s President & CEO as he introduced a new and highly engineered aerodynamic skirt.
