This indicates a sustained upward trend in the real estate market. Factors such as the low availability of housing inventory suggests that demand for new construction remains robust.

As a result, planning for the upcoming year is crucial in order to effectively manage material demands.

With this proven delivery system companies are able to load and deliver product at the same time. Our current customers enjoy the following benefits:

  • Multiple Delivery Runs with No Driver Downtime -  In some situations a second delivery run per day, per truck can be added as a  result of time saved using the Demountable System.
  • No Overtime Loading - Load times are reduced to just minutes because the next body is already loaded when the truck returns. Since It takes about 10 minutes to swap an empty body for a loaded one bodies can now be loaded during normal business hours. Just swap and go!
  • Reduced  Fleet Size and Costs - Fewer truck power units are required to do the same amount of work. To grow simply add power units at a ratio of one to two less expensive bodies.
  • Increased  Warehouse Efficiency, Decreased Product Loss -  No more staging orders. Load them right off the production line directly into the truck. This  reduces loading expenses and reduces handling for less product damage.
