What can Fuel & CO2 Reduction : Intelligent Trailer Program provide?

These Intelligent Trailer Program functions aim to maximize fuel savings via automation, designed to work with minimum driver intervention. The functions allow the trailer to provide significant fuel and CO2 emission savings of the combined commercial vehicle, helping fleet and cargo owners to meet CO2 emission reduction goals. ​


Automatic Trailer Tail

Intelligent Trailer Program Fuel & CO2 Reduction
  • System that automatically deploys trailer tail at vehicle speeds of 45 mph and retracts at 10 mph as detected by sensors linked to our Trailer Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS).
  • Helps ensure maximum aerodynamic fuel savings of up to 4.3% at highway speeds
  • Saves driver time and reduces damage to tail and/or surroundings


Tire Pressure Solutions
  • The right tire pressure is essential for fuel economy and safety. This integrated system warns of over- and under-inflation of tires helping to prevent costly vehicle downtime from tire blowouts.

Lift Axle Control

Intelligent Trailer Program Fuel & CO2 Reduction
  • The lift axle is automatically lifted without driver intervention when the trailer is empty, optimizing operational efficiency.
  • Ideal for delivery routes
  • Helps reduce operational costs (e.g. toll reduction for lifted axles)
  • Reduces tire and brake pad wear
