Prime Utility 3000R Reefer

Utility Trailer announced the largest single trailer order in the company’s history. Purchased by Prime Inc., based in in Springfield, Mo., from Utility Trailer Sales of the Ozarks, the 2,500 Utility 3000R reefer trailers add to a total of 5,000 trailers purchased from the dealership. 

“Our focus on safety, efficiency, and sustainability were the major factors in this purchase,” said Prime Director of Maintenance Paul Higgins. “Our commitment to these principles is the pinnacle of reasons for our partnership with Utility.”

The trailers will be equipped to provide maximum fuel efficiency and added safety — components include Utility’s USS-120A-4 aerodynamic side skirt, optional air disc brakes, and a suspension system designed for increased roll stability. Utility will build Prime’s reefers in both of its Utah and Virginia factories.
