Moving It Forward: Carbon Fiber Trailers

The future of transportation or just another concept that goes nowhere?

Recently, a leading retailer rolled out a concept tractor trailer that looks like something out of a futuristic movie. And while this prototype is nowhere near ready to hit the road, many in the industry hope that it will lead to the production of more sustainable trucks in the future. The carbon fiber material used in manufacturing is touted as lighter, more fuel efficient, and even stronger than the materials used in a conventional vehicle. The cab is a radical redesign and employs the latest in digital technology. The engines and drive trains are new and advanced. In short, to paraphrase one US auto manufacturer from years ago, this is not your father’s tractor and trailer! Click here.
