Power-only trucking is a versatile capacity solution where a carrier assigns a truck and driver to hook up and haul a shipper’s freight using a trailer owned by either the shipper or a third-party logistics company. People usually hire power-only carriers to haul different trailer types, such as flatbed, open deck, and refrigerated trailers; dry vans; shipping containers; and tankers.
This cost-effective trucking solution helps supplement shippers’ private fleet hauling capacity when demand unexpectedly spikes or when it is inefficient to utilize private fleet drivers. Shippers also rely on power-only trucking companies when they need to correct network imbalances, integrate new trailers to the private fleet, and optimize trailer positioning. Our power-only trucking owner-operators provide our shipping partners with flexible and dependable services, ensuring their freight is delivered safely and on time.
