Wabash National Corp. announced April 7 that Prime Inc., one of the largest refrigerated carriers in North America, has opted to purchase 1,900 ArcticLite refrigerated van trailers in addition to its original order in 2005.
“We’re excited about expanding our fleet with an additional 1,900 Wabash ArcticLite trailers, to be delivered this year,” says Robert Low, founder and chief executive officer of Springfield, Mo.-based Prime. “Our partnership with Wabash and purchase of their ArcticLite trailers will provide Prime’s customers with unmatched temperature protection. These thermally efficient and lightweight trailers are equipped with the latest technology to maximize product protection, while reducing our carbon footprint and conserving energy. The superior design of these trailers enables us to maximize cargo weight and cubic capacity. We remain committed to our quest of providing our customers with the most productive and efficient equipment available.”
Wabash National’s ArcticLite trailer, designed for thermal efficiency, continues to be the equipment solution for Prime Inc., which currently operates a fleet that includes 3,000 ArcticLite trailers.
“We once again are pleased to partner with one of the nation’s premier refrigerated carriers, Prime Inc.,” says Dick Giromini, president and CEO of Lafayette, Ind.-based Wabash National. “Their continued support of our ArcticLite refrigerated van truly authenticates the quality and performance of this product.”
