England, one of North America's largest transportation companies and the world's largest temperature-controlled carrier that will result in an annual fuel savings of over 100,000 gallons of diesel fuel.
C.R. England has purchased enough Deflecktor Aero Wheel Covers to outfit one thousand of their company-owned trucks.

Based on the results, we expect a quick payback with minimal capital outlay," said Corey England, Executive Vice President of Operations Support for C.R. England.

"The Deflecktor helps environmentally conscious truckload carriers like C.R. England reduce fuel consumption and operate more efficiently."
