BOSTON, December 19 — Lily Transportation Corp., a Top 25 Dedicated Contract Carrier and SmartWay Partner, announced today that they will be expanding their North Carolina fleet with 50 new trailers customized with SmartTruck’s environmentally-friendly UT-1 UnderTray System.
As a company we are always looking for ways to increase our fuel economy and reduce our carbon footprint. With a fleet of Compressed Natural Gas trucks on the West Coast, utilization of Cummins diesel zero-emission solutions, and an array of aerodynamic add-ons like EcoFlaps, the SmartTruck’s UnderTray System was a logical progression in our environmental sustainability initiatives.
We are eager to implement a solution that is not only SmartWay-verified, but exceeds the Environmental Performance Agency’s performance requirements. SmartTruck suggests that this system will yield a fuel-efficiency gain of more than 7 percent by significantly reducing aerodynamic drag. We’ve heard great things about the system and are happy to embrace a technology that boasts such noteworthy results.
