Welcome to the PART website. Here you can find information on the importance of aerodynamics for road transport. A substantial percentage of the world’s energy consumption is used to overcome aerodynamic drag. More than enough reason to try to minimize the drag of each type of road vehicle.

Reducing the impact of our transport on the environment needs activities on both sides of the energy balance: green, efficient energy generation and transport on the one side, minimum energy consumption on the other side.

Much is still to be done on the latter. Most of our cars, trucks and trailers are far from aerodynamically efficient. Sometimes for a good reason but in many cases not necessary at all. Old and new ideas can help and should be applied to improve this unnecessary spillage of energy.

We hope that the information on this site will convince you to support aerodynamic improvement programs in every branch of the road transport chain.
