This report describes Canada-specific costs, performance levels, and adoption rates of trailer technologies that reduce fuel consumption in tractor-trailers—and it seeks to identify the challenges and opportunities going forward. The report describes how trucking fleets in Canada are adopting trailer fuel-saving technologies primarily due to favorable economics and how there is strong sentiment for harmonization of size and weight regulations for trailers across the provinces for greater ease of route planning and execution. The report describes these changes and concludes the market has changed significantly in recent years to allow these developments.
