Trudell Trailers, located in the upper Midwest, and Midlands Carrier Transicold, headquartered in Omaha, Neb. are the two newest distributors of SmartTruck's new UT-6 Trailer UnderTray aerodynamic System.

"It's exciting to see the significant interest in our product since the launch a few months ago," said Mitch Greenberg, president, SmartTruck. "Trudell Trailers and Midlands Carrier Transicold are leaders in their market segments and territories, and we look forward to seeing more fleets and owner-operators becoming aware of and benefitting from our product through these two companies."

The SmartTruck UT-6 system, introduced in October 2010, provides fuel efficiency gains of at least 7 percent for the base model, with the full UT-6 trailer system delivering more than 10 percent gains in fuel efficiency, according to SAE test results, the company claims.

SmartTruck recently re-engineered the UT-6 base configuration to create a less costly system with nearly the same performance. The SmartTruck UT-6 system is on the verified aerodynamic technologies list from the EPA SmartWay program.

"We've seen a number of aerodynamic solutions over the past few years, and SmartTruck's solution is truly unique," said Greg Giergielewicz, vice president of sales, Trudell Trailers. "The SmartTruck UT-6 system is the next thing in delivering an ROI-based trailer aerodynamics solution, and that's why we want to be a part of what SmartTruck is doing."
