Prime ordered 2,500 TrailerTail aerodynamic devices from ATDynamics to be installed on its new Utility refrigerated trailers. It is the largest order in ATDynamics company history.

“We confirmed TrailerTail fuel efficiency in 2012 at the Goodyear Proving Grounds and have already deployed over 1,800 TrailerTails in our fleet,” said Paul Higgins, director of maintenance at Prime. “We have been very pleased with the product’s overall performance and have now made TrailerTail technology a standard specification for all new trailers.”

The two companies worked closely together to deploy the devices in Prime’s trucking fleet and Prime has since made ATDynamics its preferred provider of rear-drag aerodynamics devices.

“Prime is a forward thinking company and has seized this opportunity to gain a competitive edge from increased profits both for itself and its drivers, while simultaneously reducing the carbon emissions of its fleet,” said Andrew Smith, CEO and founder of ATDynamics.

Prime’s trailers equipped with TrailerTails and skirts will qualify for SmartWay’s highest efficiency category, according to ATDynamics. The distinction is given to vehicles getting 9% or better fuel savings from trailer aerodynamics.
