Swap Body Box Trailers – Rental and Lease
A swap body trailer looks like a conventional box trailer. However, the carrier can leave the trailer in situ thanks to its integrated folding legs. Once the cargo arrives at the drop-off point, the trailer raises to a point high enough to clear the carrier bed. The operator then releases the freestanding support legs and locks them in place, allowing the carrier to pull clear of the swap body box trailer.
When collecting a swap body trailer, the operator drives the carrier underneath the trailer. The chassis raises to take the trailer's weight before re-stowing the legs and lowering itself into place.
Why do you need a swap body box trailer?
If your supply chain relies on a fast turnaround, the swap body box trailer has significant advantages over conventional trailer types.
While one consignment is being delivered, it's possible to load the swap body box while you wait for the carrier’s return. This procedure minimizes turnaround while maximizing loading time. It is ideal for multi-store outlets fed from one distribution hub.
The swap body box system is an excellent option in situations where components are delivered, and finished products shipped.
