The 2023 Peterbilt trucks have arrived at Chief Carriers. They really are the truck of the future and they’re better than ever. Peterbilt has always been known for producing safe and efficient trucks with superior technology, and the new Peterbilt trucks are no exception.

Chief Carriers added 10 all-new 2023 Peterbilt 579s to their existing fleet of trucks. Andrew Winkler, General Manager of Chief Carriers, and his team, chose the Peterbilt 579s for the following reasons:

  • Superior Technology
  • Safety

These trucks are the result of five years of relentless focus on improving uptime, increasing fuel economy, safety, and comfort to new heights.

The name Chief Carriers has become synonymous with safety in the trucking industry. Adding the Peterbilt 579s to the fleet is congruent with their commitment to safety.

Best Fleets to Drive For winner, Chief Carriers has developed a Red Hat Culture that is rooted in their commitment to safety.

The addition of the Peterbilt 579s and choosing Samsara, earlier this year as a fleet management technology partner, goes a long way toward a stronger fleet and workforce built upon superior technology and safety.

Rather than being reactive to safety issues after they happen, Chief Carriers is always looking for ways to focus on lead safety measures and driver behaviors before they become problematic. Earlier this year, Chief Carriers chose the Samsara Mobile App to safely manage its equipment, fleet, and terminals.

Superior Technology

General Manager Andrew Winkler and the Chief Carriers team chose to run with the Peterbilt 579’s because of their superior technology and advanced safety features. The Peterbilt 579’s most distinctive feature is its completely digital dashboard, which shows real-time data, such as:

  1. An in-depth analysis of all systems, no matter how minor or major they may be.
  2. Fully Digital Gauges
  3. You may completely personalize the gauge to your preferences.
  4. Pre-Warning Alerts
  5. Trip Summary
  6. Advanced Driver Assistance
  7. Lane Departure Warning System
  8. Collision Alert

Winkler said the Peterbilt 579 is equipped with all the features that you would expect from a Peterbilt truck. It has been designed around safety, integrating advanced safety features for protection and efficiency on the road. It was literally designed with the truck driver in mind.

  • LED Headlights
  • Collision Mitigation Systems
