Multiple truck bodies, already loaded in route order, are quickly swapped from trailers to straight trucks for last mile delivery to customers.
There’s no stem drive to get to the market for delivery drivers. This frees-up time to make more, higher quality deliveries per day.
Flexible, easy to deploy truck based solution offers a quicker way to enter new markets compared to setting up a cross-dock.
At the central distribution center, up to four truck bodies per trailer are loaded through one dock door at the same time.
The loaded truck bodes are then line hauled to a remote market where they will be swapped onto locally stationed final mile trucks to make deliveries.
After being line hauled to the remote market, the pre-loaded containers are demounted from the line haul trailer and swapped onto final mile delivery trucks.
The empty containers from the previous day's delivery runs are mounted to the line-haul trailer and returned to the centralized distribution center for reloading.
After mounting the loaded containers, final mile delivery trucks operated by local drivers complete their delivery routes for the day.
At the end of the day, the empty trucks return to the swap yard and demount their containers so that they can be returned to the distribution center.
