Trailer manufacturers are increasingly producing light-weight trailers to comply with changing regulations. The shift towards lighter trailers can be attributed to increasing pressures on trucking companies owing to rising fuel prices and stricter regulatory environment. Stricter greenhouse gas emission regulations are compelling manufacturers to use a higher percentage of lightweight components in the assembly of trailers. Aluminum components, for instance, are being used to trim down the weight of trailers. The use of an aluminum air tank in a truck trailer instead of steel saves about 30 lbs. These lighter trailers allow trucking companies to reduce operating costs, lower trailer downtime, and improve efficiency and fleet safety.
