Spireon, Premier Trailer Leasing to Present ROI Business Case

Press Conference at ATA Event to Demonstrate Value of Real-Time Rich Data to Customers

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 6, 2014) - Innovation, return on investment (ROI) and trust are all part of a healthy two-year-old strategic partnership between Spireon and Premier Trailer Leasing, Inc., one of the largest trailer leasing companies in the U.S. As the leading innovator of Mobile Resource Management (MRM) and Business Intelligence Solutions that connect companies to their mobile assets and workforces, Spireon and Premier will present a business case and ROI behind trailer and asset tracking and intelligence during a press conference at the ATA Management Conference & Expo, held October 4-7 at the San Diego Convention Center.

Partnering with Spireon has helped Premier Trailer Leasing grow its business considerably through optimized fleet performance enabled by Spireon's highly scalable FleetLocate Asset & Trailer Intelligence solution. Premier's customer base has grown 30 percent over the last two years, and the company sites its strong relationship with Spireon as key to this increase. In addition, Premier has seen the adoption of trailer tracking increase nine fold over the same timeframe. Premier was recently able to scale its business to the West Coast, knowing that its asset management solution could grow as the company expanded.

"We have always been on the cutting edge of technology, knowing that our customers would find immense value in being able to monitor in real time the status of their load," says Larry Hall, Premier's executive vice president. "Spireon help us provide our customers three things they can't get anywhere else: rich data that is far superior to what they could find elsewhere, continuous real-time updates and the ability to geofence."

Talon Logistics, a Louisville, KY-based third-party logistics company, uses equipment from Premier integrated with the FleetLocate solution from Spireon. Using the combined solution allows Talon Logistics to provide customers with instant estimated time of arrival, quicker loading and unloading times, and geofencing for increased load security.

"Premier with FleetLocate has given us a distinct advantage in the market," says Brandon Briscoe, vice president of sales and operations for The Talon Logistics Network. "We are hauling more freight than ever before with fewer trailers. While I haven't done a formal ROI, I can tell you that we would not be able to do this without real-time updates from FleetLocate."

Hall says driver retention is also at an all-time high because the Spireon solution allows Premier to center around the driver, reducing wait times and making the driver's life easier.

For its part, Premier has become a valuable sales channel for Spireon as others see its success and want to replicate. "With the partnership between Spireon and Premier, the customer is truly the winner," says Roni Taylor, Spireon's vice president of industry relations. "On top of our state of the art integrations, we are working together to continuously innovate and provide customers with the best solution."

The companies will present the business case and ROI behind the partnership at a press conference on October 5 at 4:30 p.m. at the ATA Management Conference and Expo. For more information, contact Corinna Tutor.
