In February 2016, Utility raised the bar once even further—offering SmartWay options that include low-rolling resistance tires and proven aerodynamic devices such as Utility's USS-120A-4 side skirt. An EPA-designated SmartWay 3000R is rated to use 6% less fuel than the same fuel-saving 3000R without these technologies.
Utility Trailer’s Glade Spring, Virginia manufacturing plant surpassed another major milestone when it produced its 75,000th dry van trailer. “This achievement is a testament to the character of everyone at Glade Spring,” said Craig Bennett, Senior Vice President Sales & Marketing for Utility. “They have overcome several challenges and have earned the admiration of Utility and the local community.”
