LEBANON, IN--(Marketwired - Mar 24, 2014) - Transtex Composite announced the sale of more than 100,000 trailer skirts to commercial vehicle operators to date, firmly establishing the company's leadership in fuel-saving aerodynamic equipment. Fuel savings to date as a result of Transtex skirts total almost $115 million.
"100,000 is an important milestone for Transtex, but our best sales years still are ahead," said Marc Bolduc, general manager of Transtex Composite, the industry leader in trailer skirts and other aerodynamic products.
Last week, Transtex announced the immediate availability of its new EDGE trailer skirts, with a lower price and 15-year warranty. Transtex anticipates this new pricing structure will further accelerate Transtex sales.
According to Bolduc, "EDGE trailer skirts save carriers up to 7.3 percent in fuel costs, depending on equipment configuration. At that rate, the average carrier will find EDGE skirts pay for themselves in under a year."
New EDGE products will be on display in booth 710 at the Truckload Carriers Conference this week at the Gaylord Texan in Grapevine, TX.
Transtex skirts have been selected by many of the trucking industry's leading carriers, including Averitt Express, Celadon, Covenant Transport, Saia, TCSI-Transland and Werner Enterprises, because of their unparalleled performance and reliability.
