Trailer Tails

Trailer Tail

McConnell Transport has recently commenced utilization of additional equipment with technology to improve a trailer’s fuel efficiency by over 5% without hindering cargo capacity, loading or unloading.  McConnell Transport is very excited to be able to continue with the fuel efficiency improvements we have set as a continuous goal.

The technology to streamline the airflow around a semi-trailer will reduce the low pressure suction drag that occurs at the back of the trailer which acts as a vacuum pulling the trailer backward and reducing its fuel efficiency.

This technology saves an average of 8 gallons of diesel fuel for every 1,000 miles a truck drives and every gallon of fuel not burned reduces the amount of carbon dioxide emitted into the air, keeping our air cleaner and reducing our dependence on fossil fuels.
