Riverside, MO. – March 07, 2019 -- Velociti Inc., a global provider of technology design, deployment and support services, today announced it has been named the preferred provider of installation services by Rocketail LLC, makers of advanced, aerodynamic tail systems for semi-trailers. With the agreement, fleets deploying Rocketail Wing rear drag reduction technology will be able to use Velociti’s nationwide network of highly experienced and qualified 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 advanced, aerodynamic tail system for semi-trailers (Patent No. US 9,708,017 B1) is a verified EPA SmartWay trailer rear fairing technology that has exhibited a certified fuel efficiency improvement of over 3.58 U.S. gallons per 1,000 miles. Featuring a jet wing aerodynamic design, Rocketail Wing extends only 14 inches from the rear of the trailer to eliminate a main cause of rear collision damage. Fully integrated with the trailer door, the Rocketail Wing is always deployed using unique swing-hinges that lock the wings in their maximum aerodynamic open 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.
“Our decades of installing aftermarket technology products, especially products with fuel savings potential, has taught us that a successful large-scale deployment is one-part installation and 3 parts project management,” said Deryk Powell president of Velociti. “The faster the product is installed the faster the fleet can take advantage of the fuel savings. We’re pleased Rocketail recognizes our ability to handle rapid nationwide rollouts.”
