Florida based Amplex Nursery utilizes semi-trailers to line haul pre-loaded box and flatbed bodies for straight truck final mile delivery in congested areas. Company President, George Kostilink says, “Before the Demountable System we had twice as many trucks, twice as many drivers, and twice as much insurance.”
Baer’s Furniture chose Warehouse on Wheels to expand home delivery into a new market on the West Coast of Florida. The system improved operations by letting two trucks load at once at the same bay door; overtime was reduced by 5%; and trucks depart earlier enabling customers to schedule earlier deliveries.
The Demountable System allowed Levin unlimited expansion within a 300 mile radius of their distribution center. They were able to grow their business rapidly from the same warehouse by adding Demountable equipment as needed. Levin was also able to keep inventory at the same level as they grew.
This Pella Window Distributor has been using our swap bodies for over 20 years. The ability to load and deliver at the same time with the same truck lets them make multiple delivery runs per day. Loading costs and overtime were reduced by 25%. Fleet size was reduced by four trucks while business was increased by 40%.
Demountables let this 3rd party logistics firm service larger areas with fewer warehouses and less touches to freight. Customers and end users benefit because it’s easy to use, drivers start fresh in their local area and are delivering goods that have been handled less times resulting in less damage to freight.
This millwork company meets customer’s demanding delivery schedules by using Demountable Swap Bodies to eliminate the downtime experienced by standard fixed body trucks. They’ve reduced overtime and reduced their fleet size from 10 fixed body trucks to six Demountable Chassis that function as 2-trucks-in-1.
The Demountable truck body system enables companies delivering with straight trucks to load and deliver at the same time.
Up to four preloaded Demountable truck bodies are line-hauled to a regional market utilizing this semi-trailer system.
