The greatest economic opportunity facing today’s generation of business leaders is to REINVENT THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN INDUSTRY AND THE ENVIRONMENT. As world population and per capita energy consumption rise, so do the economic, social and environmental costs of oil.
It is ATDynamics’ mission to change the shape of the global trucking industry by providing advanced aerodynamics technologies for tractor-trailers to reduce diesel fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions in commercial trucking operations.
Nearly 70% of all freight in the United States is moved by truck. Globally, the transport sector consumes 20% of all energy supplies, with 96% coming from oil. Heavy duty trucks are the second largest consumers of oil within the transport sector and improving their aerodynamic efficiency offers immediate and significant reductions in fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions world-wide.
NEXT GENERATION TECHNOLOGIES
By 2015, ATDynamics technologies, combined with next-generation truck technologies, have the potential to improve the freight efficiency of a commercially available tractor-trailer, measured in ton-miles per gallon, by more than 50%.

PRODUCT LIFE CYCLE MANAGEMENT
ATDynamics’ products are made of more than 50% recycled content. We conduct life cycle assessments to identify and minimize the environmental impact of our products, from materials and manufacturing to transportation and disposal. Our life cycle management program helps customers properly reuse, recycle or dispose of our products at the end of their useful lives.
Each TrailerTail® device reduces a tractor-trailer’s GHG emissions by more than 50 metric tons over a 10 year operating lifespan.
