Third generation of TruckWings helps save on fuel

by Today's Trucking

TruckLabs launched the third generation of TruckWings, an active aerodynamic device that automatically closes the gap between the cab and trailer at highway speeds to reduce drag and save 4-6% on fuel.

Each unit has live telematics tracking uptime and flagging any exceptions. Through automated reporting, fleets can track exact fuel and carbon savings by truck or route.

Installation time has been reduced from eight hours to two hours by lifting a pre-assembled system directly to the back of the cab and this modularity also enables the device to be transferred from one truck to another as fleets upgrade or even switch OEM. Flexible edges allow for minor contact without damage.
