Utility Trailer Manufacturing Co. said that with its 4000D-X dry van, it is the first trailer manufacturer offering a qualifying model to be certified by the EPA as a SmartWay trailer.
Utility's SmartWay 4000D-X
offers aerodynamic enhancements, low rolling-resistance tires and overall weight reduction that qualify it under the specifications of the EPA's SmartWay Partnership.
"Utility is very proud to be certified by the EPA as offering a qualifying model that meets the SmartWay specifications. Our 4000D-X thin-wall dry van was designed to offer weight reduction, increased cubic capacity, and greater productivity while providing fleets and owner-operators with a durable and low-maintenance alternative to standard plate trailers," said Craig Bennett, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Utility Trailer. "We believe in the EPA's goal of reducing fuel costs, conserving energy, reducing emissions and improving the environment. This is another first by Utility recognizing our continuing efforts to make enhancements to our product line that result in lower fuel costs, less weight and higher productivity."
