This paper connects two new technology trends in vehicle fleets of road transport - the new informatics technology, especially telematics software used for evaluation transport, driver and vehicle characteristics. The second one is new technology which makes lowering of fuel consumption - aerodynamical devices of road semi-trailers. The main scope of the paper is evaluation of differences in vehicle fuel consumption and estimation the influence of aerodynamical devices. Three different tracks of haulage were chosen for evaluating the influence of aerodynamical devices on the fuel consumption. The measurement was done on one vehicle with one driver and other variable characteristics were logging for accurate evaluation. The telematics tool is logging many operational parameters. aerodynamical devices influence on vehicle fuel consumption was estimated according to this measured values by using the correlation between different chosen operational factors of haulage.
