TruckLabs launched 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.
“TruckWings have achieved millions of gallons of fuel savings for our customers to date,” says Daniel Burrows, CEO of TruckLabs. “With the release of our third-generation platform, we’re excited to extend these fuel savings to any fleet, any tractor and any fuel type. We have significantly decreased TruckWings’ installation time and total cost, and enhanced durability and longevity, so that fleets can realize fuel savings benefits faster and longer. Through TruckWings and our other product TripDynamics, a fuel-saving driver engagement technology, we’re delivering on our goal to innovate the trucking industry through technology, helping to create a more sustainable future for the commercial transportation industry.”
- TruckWings improves the efficiency of trucks across all fuel sources of diesel, natural gas, hydrogen and electric.
- Each unit has live telematics tracking uptime and flags any exceptions. Through automated reporting, fleets can track exact fuel and carbon savings by truck or route. This reporting enabled TruckLabs to combine learnings from 500 million miles with countless hours of original equipment manufacturer (OEM) input, such as installation time being reduced from eight hours to two hours and more.
