Stagecoach has become the first carrier in Texas to receive SmartWay Elite trailer designation. The EPA is the one that gave that title. But, for it to receive that honor, it must employ a range of fuel saving technology that includes aerodynamic devices and low rolling resistance tires. That will meet the minimum fuel efficiency increase of ten percent.
- Stagecoach Cartage & Distribution is the first carrier in Texas to earn the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) SmartWay Elite trailer designation.
- For a trailer to receive the SmartWay Elite designation, it must employ a range of fuel-saving technologies to meet a minimum fuel efficiency increase of 10 percent.
- Being designated also positions Stagecoach favorably as EPA and NHTSA Phase 2 greenhouse gas standards increase fuel efficiency and carbon emission requirements.
“Stagecoach, a full-service trucking, warehousing, packaging and brokerage company, has been using the STEMCO TrailerTail rear fairing since 2011. By streamlining the airflow at the back of the trailer, the TrailerTail® rear fairing reduces turbulence, sway and drag, improving fuel economy and also reducing driver fatigue.”
