Heavy Duty Trucking Names Transtex EDGE Cone and Tail Solutions Among Top 20 Products for 2015

LEBANON, IN--(Marketwired - Mar 3, 2015) - Based on the level of innovation, ability to address significant industry issues and potential benefit to a carrier's bottom line, Heavy Duty Trucking has designated the EDGE Cone and EDGE Tail as among the top 20 products for 2015.

"We are pleased to have our EDGE Cone and Tail solutions recognized among the very best products introduced last year," said Marc Bolduc, vice president of business development at Transtex Composite. 

The Transtex EDGE Cone gap reducer and EDGE Tail rear fairing provide fuel savings of more than 9 percent when deployed with an EDGE skirt and qualify users for the EPA's SmartWay Elite program.

The EDGE Cone, which reduces air turbulence by filling the gap between the tractor and trailer, can improve fuel efficiency by up to three percent. The EDGE Tail is a fairing that extends from the rear of the trailer to reduce drag and can increase fuel efficiency by as much as four percent.

EDGE solutions are available for most commercial configurations including 53-foot trailers, pups, and intermodal applications and may be custom ordered in various colors and material compositions.

Transtex solutions 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.
