There are a number of different types of trucking out there and power only trucking has gained a sizable amount of traction in recent years. For those who are unaware, the ‘power only’ concept refers to any load that is already packed up and ready to go. There are numerous advantages to be gained by using power only trucking and these are just a few:
No Insurance Expenses
Power only trucking keeps you from having to spend additional money on insurance-related expenses. These expenses are handled on the back end of the transaction. This makes for one of the most convenient trucking formats that are currently available.
No Maintenance Concerns
When a client decides that they are going to rely on power only trucking, all of the maintenance concerns that come with other forms of trucking fall by the wayside. No maintenance needs to be done and the process of vetting the driver is also something that the client no longer has to worry about.
If all things are equal, power only trucking tends to come with a much lower cost than other forms of trucking. All of the container fees that are associated with other options that are available no longer need to be worried about. For companies that own all of their own containers for transporting products from point A to point B, power only trucking is one of the least expensive options out there.
Increased Level of Control
Power only trucking means that the client owns the trailers that are being used and this places them in complete and total control over the process. Loading the containers and making sure that they remain in compliance with federal regulations is all that needs to be done from a shipping standpoint.
