Aero Devices

You are always looking for ways to lower costs and improve trailer efficiency, and that's why Premier invests so heavily in new technology.

Much of our fleet is equipped with highly durable fuel saving aero devices designed to maximize your tractor trailer fuel efficiency.

All the aero devices we use are SmartWay Verified and C.A.R.B. compliant.


California Air Resources Board (C.A.R.B.)

The State of California has different regulations regarding trailers and diesel engines which require special attention.

  • 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.  

A large portion of Premier's fleet is C.A.R.B. compliant. 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.
