NASHVILLE, Tenn. — ATDynamics has announced it’s on pace to deploy 200,00 trailer tails by 2017, including some in Canada, where provinces could begin approving their use as early as this April.

Steven Rodger, director of marketing with ATDynamics, said Ontario could be the first province to allow their use beginning next month. Other provinces will also be adjusting their laws to allow for the use of the full-sized fuel-saving device, which the company says is proven to deliver 5.1% fuel savings at highway speeds.

There are now some 350 trucking companies using trailer tails, including 65 that have deployed them across their entire fleet. ATDynamics said it will sell 50,000 tails this year alone.

It has been able to reduce the cost of the system, due to increased economies of scale and manufacturing improvements.
