30 May What are the advantages of enclosed trailer trucks for freight transport?
Today, road transport companies have several solutions for the type of hitch used to ship goods across the country. Whether tanker, platform, container carrier or enclosed trailer, the choice depends on the type of cargo being loaded.
When it comes to merchandise, the enclosed trailer is one of the most appropriate solutions. But do you know why enclosed trailer trucks are so advantageous? Here are some important advantages to consider.
Enclosed trailer trucks: several key advantages for freight transport
A trailer suited to the whims of nature and the road
Truck transport involves some risks for your merchandise. Between the winding roads found in Quebec and everywhere else in the country and the unpredictable weather, shipments can be put to the test.
When you transport your goods using an enclosed trailer, you drastically reduce these risks since your goods are protected, sealed and secured. You don’t have to worry about rain, snow or wind, even if the shipment is long distance. You can be sure that your goods will be preserved, whatever they may be. The same goes for the type of road, whether it is highways, mountains or rough terrain, you can rest assured that your precious cargo will arrive intact and safely.
A transport solution that secures your cargo
Enclosed trailer trucks have a distinct advantage over other types of trailers such as side curtain or platform trucks: your goods are in a sealed area out of sight. When you choose an enclosed trailer truck, your cargo is kept under surveillance for the entire duration of the transit, which considerably reduces the risk of theft.
There is a good reason why insurance companies receive fewer claims when this type of trailer is used by your road transport company.
A multifunctional trailer with an unbeatable storage capacity
No matter how large or small the enclosed trailer you use, one thing is undeniable: enclosed trailer trucks can carry more freight of all types, whether it is clothing, fabrics, plastic, raw materials, etc.
In fact, from floor to ceiling, an enclosed trailer is generally capable of storing up to 45,000 pounds. Every millimetre of space is therefore used to its fullest.
As a result, you can transport more goods and satisfy a larger number of customers.
This type of trailer is also much easier for the truck driver to unload, which saves a significant amount of time for the delivery of goods.
