Mckinney Trailer Rentals, a regional rental and leasing company based in Pico Rivera CA, now offers state-of-the-art transport refrigeration units (TRUs) and real-time fleet management capabilities with 56 new Thermo King Precedent units and Tracking telematics systems. The Thermo Gard Assurance program, also selected by Mckinney, helps ensure that all new systems continue to run at top performance while offering a fixed-rate maintenance cost. Mckinney operates 12 locations in Washington, Oregon, California, Arizona, and Texas. The Precedent S-600 unit selected by Mckinney is a greater-than-25-horsepower single-temperature unit considered Ultra-Low-Emission In-Use Performance Standard (ULETRU) by the California Air Resources Board (CARB). Part of the new Precedent trailer platform, the S-600 is designed to be fully compliant with new Environmental Protection Agency Tier IV final regulations, while delivering double-digit fuel savings through an all-new diesel-direct electric architecture. A cutting-edge fuel injection system makes the Precedent S-series engine run cleaner and eliminates the need for a high maintenance aftertreatment system such as a diesel particulate filter. The Precedent platform features a new Diesel Direct Electric architecture to deliver efficiencies, temperature control, and double-digit fuel savings. Precedent units are also equipped with a SmartPower electric stand-by prep package that lets users run off battery or shore power.
TracKing is a web-based asset management system that remotely monitors and tracks refrigerated trailers in a fleet. It also allows Mckinney to be more efficient and effectively manage maintenance and billing cycles because all data on unit performance and run times can be downloaded quickly. A Thermo Gard Silver (centralized billing) customer for nearly 10 years, Mckinney decided to upgrade to the Platinum Premier program. The Thermo King SVC Platinum Premier is an extended warranty program that provides certified Thermo King service across North America, accurate cost projections, genuine Thermo King parts, coverage for all major components, increased unit uptime, simplified claims processing, and increased convenience.
