Mileage Maintenance: Leave it to the Experts

For customers who select the mileage option, Premier will manage all maintenance behind the scenes so it's one less thing to worry about. Receive alerts directly to your client dashboard when each of your trailers is due for regular inspection. Simply bring the trailers to a Premier location and we'll perform the following maintenance tasks:

  • Annual FHWA inspection
  • Replace any tires and brakes due to normal wear
  • Replace any light bulbs, door seals, lubricants and other items related to normal wear

RoadCARE maintenance is included. For a small fee, we can also schedule a vendor to come to your facility and perform all of the maintenance procedures listed above, wherever you are.


Net Maintenance: Manage Maintenance In-House

In many cases, trailer maintenance can be handled in-house. With our net trailer maintenance option, you're in the driver's seat. Simply return your trailer to the location specified in your trailer rental agreement in the same condition as it was rented. All damages and equipment replacements due to natural wear and tear will be your responsibility.

RoadCARE service is included for all customers. No subscription required.

Reefer Fleet Management
Since the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) went into effect, regulations are stricter now more than ever. Premier keeps you in control and in compliance with our comprehensive fleet management solutions.
reefer fleet management

Keep your cargo cool for the long haul.

Premier reefer trailer rentals and leases come standard with the most advanced refrigerated trailer tracking system available. Keep your cargo cool with 2-way remote control and command including start/stop capability and comprehensive monitoring. Check the temperature of your trailers pre-trip and get access to detailed reefer health reports. Plus, you can streamline your fleet’s efficiency with geofencing and GPS tracking and trailer utilization metrics.

Power up with solar and increase your fuel savings.

We want to keep your fleet running efficiently, without breaking the bank or draining your energy supply. Telematics can drain your battery, which put your temperature-controlled cargo at risk. To offset the power drain, Premier reefer trailers come equipped with a 30-watt weatherproof solar panel so you can enjoy an extended battery life, fuel savings, and reduced maintenance costs.

Maintain compliance with the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA).

Are you in compliance? The Food Safety Modernization Act is the most sweeping reform of food safety laws in 70 years. Premier offers advanced reefer trailer temperature monitoring so you can manage your cold chain operations hassle-free. Our client dashboard provides instant and complete data retention, record keeping and reporting and sends out real-time alerts for temperature, location, and reefer health status updates. Plus, you can automate actions in accordance with the FSMA. Additionally, our map visualization capabilities provide real-time visibility of location, temperature, speed, safety, fuel, door and incident trending and analysis.

Make sure you’re always in the loop and in compliance with the latest standards in trailer operations. The following regulations apply to operation and maintenance of trailers and diesel engines in the state of California:

  • Any 53' dry van or refrigerated trailer operating in California is required to have a SmartWay approved C.A.R.B. compliant aerodynamic device and low rolling resistance (LRR) tires, in an effort to save fuel and lower diesel emissions in the State.
  • All transport refrigerated units (TRUs) operating in CA must meet the C.A.R.B. in-use performance standards.
  • All TRUs residing in CA must also be registered with C.A.R.B. and display compliance labels.
  • Beginning 12-31-2023, any unit operating in CA, regardless of its domiciled location, must meet the in-use performance standards, be registered with C.A.R.B. and display compliance labels.

Premier will continue to register all compliant TRUs with C.A.R.B. and install compliance labels so you can keep your freight moving and avoid inspection delays or potential fines. If you are planning to operate Premier equipment in the State of California, please notify your sales or operations representative to ensure you are issued a compliant trailer.

Ensure every journey is smooth riding. Our Loss Damage Waiver (LDW) provides coverage for any physical damage to leased trailers without the added hassle of scheduling and unscheduling insurance for each rental. Claims are never reported to your insurance provider.

What is the Loss Damage Waiver (LDW) ?

Premier offers the Loss Damage Waiver (LDW) service to its customers to cover the trailer in the event of a loss or damage from a covered peril. For companies that schedule LDW, this service provides the physical damage coverage you need without having to schedule and unschedule insurance for each rental. Claims are never reported to your insurance provider.

In the event of a casualty, trailer values are always covered in full. In the event of a claim due to fleet damage, rental charges stop when the deductible is paid. We offer competitive rates and reasonable deductibles and stop charges as soon as rental or lease is terminated.

What does the Loss Damage Waiver (LDW) cover?

Have you experience damage to your Premier fleet? Don't sweat it; Premier is here for you. For coverage, file a claim with your local Premier representative within 48 hours of the incident. Direct physical loss or damage caused by a covered peril, including:

  • Collision while moving or standing
  • Damage that is the result of fire, hail, wind or tornado
  • Theft of trailer (police report required)
  • Recovery of the unit, towing and storage — $5,000 maximum

What doesn't the Loss Damage Waiver (LDW) cover?

It's important to note: Mexico and Canada are excluded from coverage. Additional damages not covered by the Loss Waiver Damage include the following:

  • Damage that is the result of loading and/or unloading freight or freight that was not secured during loading
  • Damage or loss due to flood (including storm surge or mud slide)
  • Loss resulting from a nuclear hazard, military action, civil authority, or earth movement
