Stoughton Lease will immediately begin installation of SmartTruck TopKits across its entire fleet of rental trailers, the companies announced Tuesday.
“We chose SmartTruck as our aero partner for several important reasons,” says Stoughton Lease President Paul Sulewski. “The proven durability of the TopKit, combined with SmartTruck’s Limited Lifetime Warranty, gives our customers peace of mind that they will not have to contend with costly damages at the end of the rental or lease period.”
“We are thrilled that Stoughton has selected our remarkable TopKit to meet their customers’ aerodynamic needs,” says Steve Ingham, SmartTruck CEO.
“The adoption of TopKit, the lightest weight CARB-compliant Aero System available, by one of the premier trailer companies in the U.S. is an extremely satisfying confirmation of its value to the industry,” adds John Brown, SmartTruck vice president of Sales and Marketing. “We will be excited to see the operating and fuel costs savings enjoyed by Stoughton’s customers using the TopKit System over the next few years.”
SmartTruck says its TopKit Aero System is an innovative approach to aerodynamically improving fuel mileage without the need for obstructive undertrailer components like side skirts, which limit visibility and access. With the SmartTruck TopKit, there is no risk of damage from loading docks or intermodal operations, and cost is comparable to side skirts. Available for both dry vans and reefers with swing or rollup doors, as well as straight trucks, SmartTruck says the TopKit Aero System drag-reduction solution is EPA SmartWay Verified and C.A.R.B. compliant.
