MVTS Tests EDGE Products on Corrugated Reefer Trailer

MVTS Certified Testing Proves Significant Fuel Savings for the TRANSTEX® EDGE ELITE AERO™ SYSTEM (Refrigerated Trailer)

The EDGE ELITE AERO™ SYSTEM shows a 7.88% increase in fuel efficiency for corrugated refrigerated trailers, saving fleets up to $2,832 per vehicle

LAS CRUCES, N.M.May 27, 2021 /CNW/ — Mesilla Valley Transportation Solutions (MVTS) recently completed testing for the TRANSTEX EDGE ELITE AERO™ SYSTEM on a refrigerated trailer with corrugated sides and determined that the technology provided fuel savings of 8.88 gallons per 1,000 miles or 7.88%. The system includes the E-2330T EDGE SKIRTSTM, the EDGE TOPKIT+, and EDGE FLAPS.

“Refrigerated trailers have a different aerodynamic behavior considering their corrugated sidewalls, fuel tank, and refrigeration unit, which is why fleets with refrigerated trailers will see different fuel efficiency results compared to dry van trailers with flat sidewalls. Given the difference in aerodynamic profile, our Engineering team continuously works to refine TRANSTEX’s product offering for various trailer applications,” said Pierre-Yves Lacroix, Engineering Director at TRANSTEX. “MVTS Certified Testing results validate our performance assertions, distinguishing EDGE products from other players in the industry.”

MVTS calculated that the use of the EDGE ELITE AERO™ SYSTEM would result in 1,110 gallons of fuel annually, or $2,832 saved per vehicle at 125,000 driven miles. When translated across a 1,000-truck fleet and a five-year average trailer life, the profits would be $2.232 million annually.

Testing was done using two 2019 International LT 625 trucks with Cummins X15 15-liter engines, Eaton Endurant 12-speed Automated Manual Transmissions, and 2021 Utility 53-foot refrigerated trailers with corrugated sidewalls. Testing was conducted at 65 miles per hour and a gross vehicle weight of 45,000 pounds.

“MVTS testing has measured substantial savings with the TRANSTEX EDGE ELITE AERO SYSTEM. With the system savings of 8.88 gallons per 1,000 miles for refrigerated trailers and 12.09 gallons per 1,000 miles for dry vans, it is evident the TRANSTEX team has worked hard to develop a solution that saves fleets a lot of fuel,” said Daryl Bear, lead engineer and COO of MVTS.

“Bringing efficient solutions to transportation is at the core of our operations. We continue to invest in innovation through R&D and are proud to offer customers a system that delivers significant fuel savings for various trailer types,” said Mathieu Desjardins, General Manager, TRANSTEX. “Innovation and ambition fuel our desire to grow as a global leader, which is why we continue to expand our line of solutions for tractor and trailer applications.”

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

Hirshbach Press Release – 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.”
