ATDynamics, a global supplier of semi-trailer rear-drag aerodynamics technology, announced at the Mid-America Trucking Show that Prime Inc., after extensive fuel economy and durability testing, is installing TrailerTail aerodynamic fairings on all remaining new trailers, approximately 450, purchased by Prime in 2013.
After extensive technology evaluation, including independent SAE Type II J1321 testing and wind tunnel testing, Prime found that a combination of TrailerTails and trailer skirts provided fuel savings at highway speed of any commercially available fairing technology.
More than 12,000 ATDynamics TrailerTails are currently deployed in the United States with more than 50,000 expected on U.S. highways by 2014.
At ATDynamics press conference at MATS, it was stated that the company has approximately 99% of the market share and experienced a sales growth from 2011 to 2012 of around 500%.
