Results for Any Carrier
Carriers can trust the test results are reliable for other tractor-trailer configurations, they are not specific to MVT’s fleet. During testing, vehicles were configured to represent the current industry-standard and did not include wheel covers, tractor side fairing, or trailer tail devices. Those devices were installed in a separate test to represent MVT’s own fleet configuration and fuel savings were very similar to the test with trailer skirts listed above.
