Velociti has been named the preferred provider of installation services by Rocketail, makers of advanced, aerodynamic tail systems for semi-trailers.
With the agreement, truck fleets and owner-operators deploying Rocketail rear drag reduction technology will be able to use Velociti’s nationwide network of highly experienced and qualified mobile technicians.
“Velociti’s proven record for effectively and efficiently managing and providing aftermarket technology installations makes them the ideal company to be our preferred provider,” says Michael Militello president, Rocketail. “Their experience and reputation were both factors in our decision to offer their services to our growing customer base.”
The Rocketail Wing System for semi-trailers is a verified EPA SmartWay trailer rear fairing technology that has exhibited a certified fuel efficiency improvement of over 3.58 U.S. gallons per 1,000 miles. Featuring an advanced aerodynamic wing design, Rocketail says its wing extends only 12 in. from the rear of the trailer, eliminating a main cause of rear collision damage. Fully integrated with the trailer door, the wings are always deployed using unique industrial-grade cable hinges that lock the wings in their maximum aerodynamic open position each time the doors are closed.
Additionally, Rocketail says the system shifts the wings flush with the sides of the trailer each time the doors are opened, allowing the doors to swing a full 270 degrees without being blocked.
“Through our vast experience installing and supporting a wide-range of technology products, we prove project management is a key part of the equation,” says Velociti President Deryk Powell. “There are a lot of moving parts and the faster the product is installed the faster the fleet can take advantage of the intended savings. We’re pleased Rocketail recognizes our ability to handle all aspects of the deployment process.”
