Where we focus
From ThermoGuard, Great Dane’s durable and lightweight composite liner that improves thermal integrity, to pushing the boundaries of trailer electrification, our equipment innovations are designed to support a more sustainable future.
Telematics are standard on all Great Dane trailers, meaning fleets benefit from real-time trailer-level data as the industry transitions towards a connected, autonomous, and zero-emission future.
Together, we can help improve the environment where we work and live. From investing in technologies that reduce air leaks to analyzing our carbon footprint, Great Dane is working hard to proactively protect people and the environment.

THREE PLACES FUEL EFFICIENCY GAINS ARE HIDING
Aerodynamic devices, trailer telematics, and electrification are driving efficiency gains and a cleaner tomorrow.
BRAKING TO ACCELERATE THE FUTURE
Fleets understand the pros and cons of running electric vehicles (EVs), and as charging infrastructure spreads, EV comfort level continues to grow. Regenerative braking is here to accelerate the future.
Over the life of a trailer insulation degrades, releasing the insulation’s blowing agent into the air. If the blowing agent is classified as a greenhouse gas, the released chemical will also amplify infrared light, potentially causing global warming. Great Dane looked to the future and crafted ClimaCore, a brand-new insulation with a blowing agent that has almost zero impact on global warming.
Fixing Air Leaks to Reduce Energy Consumption
Air leaks are a significant source of wasted energy, which has a substantial adverse impact on the environment. Air Aware is a program designed to identify and remedy air leaks at our manufacturing plants so they can be fixed, saving energy.
