Wabash National Corp. will make rear-drag aerodynamic technology from ATDynamics an available option on select dry van and refrigerated van models. The TrailerTail technology can reduce fuel consumption by over 5%, ATDynamics said.
TrailerTails are lightweight, thermoplastic composite fairings that can be installed to the back of dry or refrigerated semi-trailers to reduce low-pressure aerodynamic drag behind the trailer, ATDynamics said. They complement Wabash National’s DuraPlate AeroSkirt products, which reduce drag underneath the trailer.
“Wabash National is an industry-leading manufacturer dedicated to innovation in trailer technology,” said Andrew Smith, CEO and founder of ATDynamics. “We are honored to be working closely with them to offer TrailerTails to leading North American fleets.”
