ATDynamics Announces TrailerTail Agreement with Prime Inc.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — ATDynamics said here Thursday at the Mid-America Trucking Show that its TrailerTail device will be installed on at least 450 refrigerated trailers operated by Prime Inc., one of the nation’s largest refrigerated carriers.

ATDynamics CEO Andrew Smith said the installation of the new equipment is tailored to the needs of Prime’s owner-operators, who can realize an average of about 7% higher take-home pay because of fuel efficiency created by the tails.

“Many fleets which use owner-operators to pull their freight resist in investing in fuel-efficient trailer equipment or do the bare minimum to comply with regulations,” said Paul Higgins, Prime Inc.’s director of maintenance.

ATDynamics said the agreement with Prime followed extensive testing, and that the equipment will be installed on all trailers that remain to be manufactured this year.
