Cargo trucks have often been perceived as fuel-guzzlers and being resource heavy. No fault of theirs since it’s no joke carrying several tons of freight on your back for long distances. Yet Shell Lubricants and AirFlow Truck Company believe this is a thing of the past.
The two companies have collaborated and come up with the Starship Project. While the name may suggest it to be something straight out of Star Trek, it is in fact a futuristic approach to cargo trucking. What it essentially aims to achieve is going further using less energy while maximizing the cargo carrying capacity.
Thanks to its expertise in lubrication, Shell puts forward a low viscosity fully synthetic motor oil that is designed to reduce engine stress and lessen wear while improving fuel economy. It is likewise aimed at lower emissions despite maintaining the usual load requirements. In line with this, Shell also provided technical know-how on engine and drivetrain components, ensuring that these will operate in the most efficient manner to meet future fuel and emissions regulation that are set to become tighter in the years to come.
