To qualify for our small fleet and owner operator power only program, you will need to provide evidence of a valid contract operating authority as well as the minimum program insurance requirements.

Coverage required by the Prime, Inc. owner/operator power only program:

  • Minimum of $200,000 cargo legal liability insurance
  • Minimum of $65,000 non-owned trailer physical damage insurance
  • A satisfactory safety rating must be maintained or satisfactory SMS Basic scores if no rating has been issued for you

After you’ve entered into a brokerage agreement and executed a trailer interchange agreement with the Prime, Inc. Advanced Fleet Program, a qualcomm unit (also known as an electronic log) will need to be activated onto our account after installation in the truck. This is to deliver load information to the driver and to monitor the load information for our customers. If you have your own qualcomm unit already, you may be able to use it as long as it conforms to the platform we are using. Otherwise, we can rent a qualcomm electronic log unit to you weekly.

Driver Recruitment/Qualification/Management and Hours of Service are the responsibility of you as the carrier and owner operator.
