Velociti is a global provider of technology design, deployment and support services. With the agreement, fleets deploying Rocketail rear drag reduction technology will be able to use Velociti’s nationwide network of mobile technicians.
“Velociti’s proven record for effectively and efficiently managing and providing aftermarket technology installations makes them the ideal company to be our preferred provider,” said Michael Militello, president of Rocketail. “Their experience and reputation were both factors in our decision to offer their services to our growing customer base.”
The Rocketail Wing aerodynamic tail system for semi-trailers is a verified EPA SmartWay trailer rear fairing technology that has exhibited a certified fuel efficiency improvement of more than 3.58 US gallons per 1,000 miles. Featuring a jet-wing design, the Rocketail Wing extends only 14 inches from the rear of the trailer, eliminating a main cause of rear collision damage.
Fully integrated with the trailer door, the Rocketail Wing is always deployed using industrial-grade swing hinges that lock the wings in their maximum aerodynamic position each time the doors are closed. The system shifts the wings flush with the sides of the trailer each time the doors are opened, allowing the doors to swing a full 270 degrees without being blocked.
“Through our vast experience installing and supporting a wide range of technology products, we've proven project management is a key part of the equation,” said Deryk Powell, president of Velociti. “There are a lot of moving parts, and the faster the product is installed the faster the fleet can take advantage of the intended savings.
“We’re pleased Rocketail recognizes our ability to handle all aspects of the deployment process.”
