Tractor Trailer

(Typical Tractor Truck with Van Trailer)

  • Trailer service is performed via Staged Trailer or Live Load.
  • Sometimes customers have their own trailers and trucks and will deliver their material in.
  • When trailers are staged, they are often used as extended storage for a customer.
  • If a trailer is not moving more than twice a month, typically trailer rental is applied as the asset is not paying for itself and the customer is using the trailer for storage more than moving recyclable products.
  • Live loads are just how they sound, the truck shows up either on scheduled pickup time or first come, first serve basis and is live loaded by the customer.
  • LTL (Less than Truckload) is also an option but not frequently done in the Recycling Industry.
