The DuraPlate pup trailer will feature the latest in high-strength bonding technology, including fully-bonded sidewalls, a bonded DuraPlate composite roof system, and bonded logistics posts. The trailer will also be fitted with new DuraPlate AeroSkirts® specifically designed for less-than-truckload applications.
The ultra-lightweight DuraPlate HD dry freight van will feature Wabash National's new MaxClearance™ Overhead Door System which provides up to 110" of vertical door opening, comparable to that of swing door models. The trailer will also feature the innovative ID / Auxiliary Stop Light System, the DuraPlate AeroSkirt and several of the company's newest weight-saving options.
"In today's freight operating environment, the ability to provide fleets with innovative solutions that reduce the trailer's total cost of ownership, enhance productivity and improve fuel economy is more important than ever," said Robert Lane, Wabash National Director of Product and Business Development. "For the past few years, we've been working with some of America's leading fleets to develop and test these new innovations. We look forward to introducing them to the industry at TMC."
