Downtime becomes delivery time! Drivers swap an empty body for a loaded one and return to delivering in minutes.
Using multiple bodies with each truck lessens the number of power-units required to do the same amount of work.
Swap Bodies eliminate overtime, 2nd shift loading, and extra trucks used to fill gaps - converting costs into profitability.
