DALLAS, Tex. — With Utility Trailers 4000D-X dry van, the company is the first trailer manufacturer offering a qualifying model to be certified by the EPA as a SmartWay trailer.
Utilitys SmartWay 4000D-X offers aerodynamic enhancements, low rolling resistance tires and overall weight reduction that qualify it under the specifications of the EPAs 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.
Utility also participated in the SmartWay “Get Green” Trucking Summit at the Great American Trucking Show (GATS) hosted by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on Aug. 24.
The event showcased the numerous achievements of the EPA’s SmartWay Transport Partnership, a progressive collaboration between the US EPA and the freight industry to increase energy efficiency, with an emphasis on fuel-saving technologies.
We believe in the EPAs goal of reducing fuel costs, conserving energy, reducing emissions and improving the environment, said Bennett. 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.
