It's 6:45 AM - Do You Know Where Your Delivery Trucks Are?

If you run Demountables, you do. They’re rolling up to their first delivery...whether it’s close by or hundreds of miles from your distribution center. Your teams are getting an early start providing a best-in-class delivery experience to your customers.

Swap Bodies - Supercharge Local Delivery

The swap-body solution lets you load and deliver at the same time using the same truck.

The Swap-Body Secret? No downtime. While drivers are out making deliveries, items for the next runs are being loaded into 2nd or 3rd bodies assigned to the same truck. When drivers return to the warehouse they swap an empty body for one that’s loaded in about 10 minutes so that first thing in the morning drivers climb into fully loaded trucks and head out. No drama. No overtime. No rushing around. Just pre-loaded trucks pulling out of the lot...on schedule.

Warehouse on Wheels - Line-Haul to Long Distance Markets

Line-haul multiple bodies to remote markets on semi-trailers and swap to straight trucks for the final mile.

Warehouse on Wheels - Line-haul multiple straight-truck bodies to a regional market and transfer to straight trucks for the final mile.

No cross-dock or warehouse required. Your straight trucks will be at their first deliveries early and your delivery teams will be fresh, even if it’s hundreds of miles from your distribution center. The Warehouse on Wheels line-haul solution simplifies making early deliveries by straight trucks in markets hundreds of miles from your distribution center.
