 Evolution of Aerodynamics

• Manufacturers have
  increased fuel efficiency
  by over 10% with front
  cab aerodynamics

• Trailers represent an
  opportunity for similar
  efficiency gains.
      A clear need for aerodynamics
•    At 70 mph, 65% of a trucks fuel is used to overcome aerodynamic drag.
•    Is there Demand?
      – Demanding criteria
           •   Must save fuel
           •   Can not interfere with operation
           •   Durable
           •   Affordable – quick ROI




    Computational Tests Refined the Designs       Operational Tests Demonstrated Reliability




    SAE Tests Proved the Fuel Savings
The Freight Wing Solution
     • 6% reduction in fuel consumption
  • SAE/TMC J1321 type II standardized tests




 Freight Wing Gap Fairing™   Freight Wing Belly Fairing™
        Freight Wing Belly Fairing
•   4% SAE J1321 Proven Fuel Savings.
•   Easily mounted to dry van or reefer.
•   No holes required.
•   The modular aluminum side panels are durable and easily replaced
•   Lightweight at 150 lbs - .060 aluminum sheeting
•   Angled lower flaps provide up to 20 inches of ground clearance.
    The Freight Wing System
•   Belly and Gap Fairings combined
•   Boosts fuel efficiency improvement to 6%
•   The Gap Fairing prevents airflow from hitting the trailers front face
•   The center of the trailers face remains open
•   Designed specifically for use with modern aerodynamic sleeper and day cabs.

Miles Traveled




                                               Fuel Cost Saved Per Trailer*
            *This typical long haul scenario starts with diesel at 2.35 per gallon (7/5/2005 national average) and
               gives an 8% increase per 100,000 miles to account for the average annual fuel price increase
   Environmental and Energy Savings

• Freight Wing trailers save up to 12 tons of emissions per 100,000 miles.
• The widespread use of aerodynamic trailers would result in a significant
  reduction in environmental impact and U.S. oil consumption.

                     Potential U.S. Fuel and Emissions Yearly Savings




 Millions
 Saved




                             Percent of U.S. Trucks Outfitted
 Additional Benefits
• Improved truck handling and performance. Percentage of fuel savings
  directly correlates to a reduction in engine horsepower requirements.

• Freight Wing can qualify fleets for the EPA Smartway Transport
  Partnership, a program that provides valuable incentives to
  participating carriers.

• Freight Wings improve highway safety by decreasing the splash/spray
  produced by trucks in rainy/snowy conditions.

• Reduced maintenance expenses through decreased engine power
  requirements and tire wear.

• Freight Wing products are proudly made in the USA.
