•    Description:   Commercial trucking is the backbone on which North American shipping and distribution relies. Nearly every product on store shelves or in one’s home has been delivered by commercial trucks, known as semi or big-rig trucks. These trucks are designed to pull various loads behind them in the form of a large rectangular box trailer (called a dry van), a refrigerated box trailer (called a reefer), or tankers (that carry fuel or other liquid or gas materials). Because they are designed to carry heavy loads over long distances, commercial trucks face unique concerns when it comes to lightweighting and fuel economy.
