Kentucky Trailer is installing tall versions of the Trailer Tail at its plant in Louisville.


MATS, LOUISVILLE -- ATDynamics and Kentucky Trailer say they’ve formed a partnership to offer the DropFrame version of the TrailerTail as a standard order option on new trailer orders.

DropFrame uses the basic TrailerTail with taller side panels to accommodate the additional height of the drop-frame trailers that Kentucky specializes in, according to Andrew Smith, ATD’s founder and chief executive officer. 

Drop-frame trailers are ideal candidates for TrailerTails due to their larger rear surface areas which cause more aerodynamic drag than a normal dry van or refrigerated trailer, Smith said.  TrailerTail DropFrame has been tested to save over 11 gallons of fuel for every 1000 miles the trailer is pulled at road speeds.

The first 89 TrailerTail DropFrame units installed at the Kentucky Trailer factory will come off the production line in April 2014 for a major private fleet.
