Trailer Skirting

Is Old News In CH Robinson Minnesota

Our Aerodynamic Technology Can Help You Lower Your Operating Costs

Truck Skirting Can Save You Money

But, Our Aero Systems Can Save You More

Whether you’re an owner operator or you own a fleet of trucks and trailers in Minnesota, finding ways to lower your operating costs is always a good idea. The more you can lower you expenditures, the more money you can take home, and lowering a variable cost like your fuel expenses is exactly what the engineers at SmartTruck have accomplished.

 

Aerodynamic Systems:  Who Says Trucks Can’t Fly?

Curious kids become curious adults. The engineers at SmartTruck have spent a lot of time pouring over aerodynamic research and doing their own. Why? Simple- to make your trailer more aerodynamically sound.

You see, we’ve found effective ways to reduce the way air moves around and over your tractor-trailer. By reducing the drag in the airflow, our aero systems make your trailer more fuel efficient. This is the exact same technology that is used to study aerodynamics to make airplanes and racecars more fuel efficient, so why shouldn’t we apply this technology to the transportation industry?

Trailer Skirting Is Obsolete

When it comes to making your trailer more fuel efficient, many trailer owners have installed truck skirts or side skirts, but the reality is our technology makes these devices outdated. Plus, our aero systems can help you save more money on fuel than trailer skirts alone.

Using sophisticated computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and an optimization process using a Genetic Algorithm (GA), our engineers have designed each of our products and components for simplicity and durability. It’s CFD that allows aircraft designers to not only determine if their new airplane will actually fly, but this process gives us data to understand how the plane will perform over time. We’ve helped bring that technology to the trucking industry.

What our engineers have discovered is that our aero products outperform truck skirts, trailer tails and trailer underpinnings. That’s why our systems are the first choice in not only reducing fuel consumption but maintaining compliance in California.

Whether you’re a local leasing company, or a major corporation with 25,000 or more trailers, you’re always looking for ways to reduce your operating costs. At SmartTruck, our engineers have been researching ways to apply aerodynamic technology to the trucking industry, and we’ve found just the thing to reduce your fuel consumption.

EPA SmartWay Verified & C.A.R.B. Compliant

Most of our SmartTruck Aero Systems are verified by EPA’s SmartWay Program and therefore accepted by C.A.R.B. for their requirements in California. This means you can be sure your trailers are completely compliant if you haul in and out of California.

Aerodynamic Systems For Your Trailers: Third Party Validation

Our engineers have utilized the expertise of both CD-Adapco along with the University of Tennessee SIMCENTER to verify the performance of our products. Not only did they validate and approve of our aero systems, but our TopKit Fairing System was named a HDT Top 20 product for both 2015 and 2017.
