EkoStinger would like to proudly highlight and thank our very first customer and longtime friends: DeCarolis Truck Rental, Inc.
Since its inception over 80 years ago, DeCarolis has become a major player in the transportation sector. What started as a single truck transporting day laborers and produce has grown into a full-service independent truck rental company with 7 branches across Upstate New York.
Now, in addition to being one of the oldest leasing companies in the area, they provide maintenance, supply heavy-duty parts and equipment, and have trucks running across North America – with over 400 units equipped with the Stinger System, the most innovative choice in trailer aerodynamics.
Fuel efficiency is paramount when it comes to the transport sector. EkoStinger’s aerodynamic trailer devices are designed to reduce drag, subsequently improving trailer stability and maximizing fuel savings. Additionally, the Stinger System is CARB Compliant and GHG2 Bin 3 verified, meeting (and exceeding) the EPA's certification requirements for fuel savings and drag reduction.
"Fuel efficiency and compliance are the primary reasons for installing these products - EkoStinger does a good job for us and our customers."
- John DeCarolis, Vice President, DeCarolis Truck Rental, Inc.
Another benefit that DeCarolis’ drivers have experienced first-hand is the Stinger’s ability to accommodate weight distribution. With conventional trailer skirting, easily accessing and adjusting trailer axles isn’t an option.
"Drivers are happy. With heavy loads, the wheels can be moved back for weight distribution. The Stinger moves along with the rear axles for an aerodynamic advantage over conventional side skirts."
DeCarolis is consistently ordering and installing Stingers to improve fuel savings and trailer aerodynamics for their many customers. They supply trucks, flatbeds, trailers, refrigerated units, and storage trailers to businesses all over New York State. They even lease a straight truck to EkoStinger to assist with installs on customer sites.
With such strong ties to Upstate New York, this is a great partnership with an exciting future. We are truly honored to have such a stable, family-owned business as our first ever customer. Thank you so much, DeCarolis – we’d never be able to have the success we have without your support!
