Aerofficient, a designer and manufacturer of aerodynamic enhancement devices for heavy-duty truck trailers, announced at the 85th Annual Ontario Trucking Association Convention that Ontario-based Onfreight Logistics will be outfitting its entire fleet of road trailers with Aerofficient side fairings.
Based in Tecumseh, Ontario, near the busiest of U.S.-Canadian border crossings, Onfreight has a modern fleet of tractors and trailers equipped with the latest technology. The company also boasts warehouse and packaging operations in London and Mississuaga.
“We have followed a progressive growth plan that has always included the use of technology to help us not only maintain our high level of service but to also help maintain our overall costs,” says Steve Ondejko, president of Onfreight. “We take our purchasing decisions very seriously. Once we made the decision that trailer fairings truly met the efficiencies and fuel savings the manufacturers were touting, we carefully researched the qualities and capabilities of the various offerings in the market to determine the best product.”
According to Ondejko, Aerofficient was selected based on its simplicity, quality of engineering, durable lightweight materials and superior aerodynamic performance. “Aerofficient’s fairings are a quality product that was obviously designed by people who understand the rigors of trucking.”
Aerofficient’s fairings are produced from an injection-molded automotive-grade thermoplastic polyolefin material designed to withstand thermal expansion and contraction caused by extremes of heat and cold. In addition, the hinged three-panel design of Aerofficient’s fairings provides added strength and flexibility to withstand the everyday rigors of trucking.
“We have spent years researching quality materials and designing a product that meets our goal of performing as designed for a minimum of 10 years of high-mileage trucking,” says Jim Reiman, chief executive officer of Aerofficient. “When sophisticated and highly experienced companies like Onfreight put us to the test and we win, then we know we’ve achieved our goal. We are honored to add them to our rapidly growing list of customers.”
