AirFlow Truck Company
It's not easy to refine the wheel, much less reinvent it.
But when we sat down to design and then create a brand new Class 8 tractor trailer rig with advanced aerodynamics, extraordinary fuel savings, and a very low emissions profile, we ended up revolutionizing over the road trucks, again.
One of our top priorities, as always, was to obtain the lowest cost-per-mile operating cost. How could we give fleet operators and owners a rig that will substantially reduce fuel and operating costs?
The answer is to use advanced 21st. century computer-aided-design aerodynamics, light weight modern materials and assembly, and innovative but practical solutions to common problems. A partial list of these innovative solutions include:
AirFlow Truck Company is currently in the process of building our first prototype of the most aerodynamic and fuel efficient Class 8 Tractor trailer rig on the planet.
The 2012 AirFlow BulletTruck.
But, it's more than "only" the world's most aerodynamic and fuel-efficient Class 8 rig. The 2012 AirFlow BulletTruck is a vehicle that aftermarket manufacturers can use as a test vehicle and to promote, demonstrate, and market their cutting-edge truck technology.
From our manufacturing facility centrally located in Connecticut, we are aspiring to produce trucks with a major competitive advantage: the lowest cost-per-mile of any Class 8 Tractor Trailer rigs available
In 2006, the trucking industry spent $98 billion on diesel fuel. Over 50% of that fuel consumption is utilized to overcome aerodynamic drag.
The 2012 AirFlow BulletTruck represents a quantum leap in tractor trailer aerodynamics, which could potentially save the trucking industry over 7.5 billion gallons of fuel and 21 million tons of toxic exhaust emissions annually.

Interview with Reed Black
Ever wonder how the AirFlow rig was designed to be so aerodynamic, before it ever got on the road? It all has to do with the CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) software from our good friends and Partner SolidWorks.
