How did you get here and what is this table? A quick explanation for the table is here, and a more complete one is there.

Please note: Direct comparison of companies in this table to those using aerodynamic modifications is not entirely fair.  As mentioned in the full report, a much higher share of these companies are associated with ports and as such are running standardized non-aerodynamic trailers, often on non-aerodynmamic chassis from chassis pools associated with the ports.  In addition, many companies have implemented other efficiency improvements including low rolling resistance tires in regular and wide base configurations, aerodynamic mud flaps, auxiliary power units (APU) and other efficiency modifications. Finally, the data in this table was collected between May 2012 and May 2013, almost two and a half years before its publication (October 2015). Since that time, many companies on this list have implemented aerodynamic and other efficiency measures to their fleets, measures which we hope to document in future data collection and research.
