53' single temp reefer trailers can cost between $65,000usd to $90,000usd depending on the specifications.
It will vary with how hard the unit has to work. In some cases the engine may never start and will not use any fuel, other loads and conditions could have it running continiously and burning 20 gallons of diesel a day.
Assuming you are financing the trailer and aside from lease or finance costs, it will probably cost about $1.00 per hour of engine run time to maintain the reefer unit plus fuel and factor roughly 2 cents per km for trailer maintenance and tire costs.
A diesel engine runs a compressor and fan system which creates and moves the heating or cooling through the trailer to keep the load at a specific temperature. The microprocessor measures the return air and decides when to start and run the system to maintain the temperature inside the trailer.
