Increases Fuel Efficiency
Eliminating the refrigerated trailer’s roof as a heat source reduces the load on the reefer’s compressor.
Reduced compressor load equals reduced compressor operation time required to maintain internal temperatures. Reduced
run time equals fuel savings.
Our coatings are water based and
Low VOC products. In addition, it increases fuel efficiency on average by 18% which translates into preventing
the emission of 22.44 lbs. of CO2 and other green house gases per gallon
of diesel fuel conserved.
Reduces Repair Costs
Less frequent compressor run time
reduces wear and tear on the unit resulting in fewer break downs, which saves money on parts and labor as well as less downtime
over the life of your reefer.
The average life cycle for a refrigerated trailer is ten years.
By extending the life cycle of the compressor, you delay spending for parts, labor, and unit replacement. The application
of Eco-Transport Coating frees capital to be invested in more
valuable areas of your business.
ROI Within Year 1
Cost reductions in fuel savings
and compressor maintenance result in fast payback.

Las Vegas, Nevada
Studies conducted by Independent Refrigerated Fleets
using 2 trailers running similar mileage and freight. One Trailer was coated with Eco-Transport Coating; the other was not.
The immediate fuel efficiency gains were astounding. In addition to saving money on fuel costs, the coated fleets have experience
less downtime and reduced maintenance costs as a result of lessened cooling loads place on the refrigeration units.
