PepsiCo ranks No. 1 on the Transport Topics list of the 100 largest private carriers in North America.

The devices will be retrofitted on existing trailers and come factory-installed on subsequent new trailers, according to PepsiCo.

“These trailer skirts and TrailerTail will help us support PepsiCo’s 2025 Performance with Purpose agenda, specifically the goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 20%,” Keshav Sondhi, PepsiCo director of fleet engineering and sustainability, said in a company release. “This investment in our fleet helps us ensure that we are reducing our impact on the environment while also getting our products into our customers’ hands as efficiently as possible.”
