In power-only trucking, a driver is contracted to haul a pre-loaded trailer from point A to point B. The trailer is typically owned by the shipper or a third party, and the driver’s responsibility is to ensure safe and timely delivery. This method simplifies logistics for companies that do not want to maintain their own fleet of tractors.

Power-only trucks can haul a variety of trailers, including dry vans, refrigerated trailers, flatbeds, tankers, and specialized trailers such as lowboys and double drops. The compatibility depends on the hitch and other equipment specifications of the truck.

Benefits include cost savings on owning and maintaining a fleet of tractors, flexibility in meeting fluctuating transportation demands, reduced downtime with pre-loaded trailers, and the ability to handle specialized or oversized loads with the right power-only equipment.

Shippers, freight brokers, and businesses with their own trailers but without sufficient tractors to move them can benefit from power-only trucking. It’s also ideal for companies that need to move trailers for repositioning or during peak shipping seasons.

To find a reliable power-only trucking service, look for companies with a strong reputation, verified customer reviews, proper licensing and insurance, and a track record of on-time deliveries. It’s also beneficial if the service provides 24/7 support and advanced tracking capabilities.

Costs can vary based on distance, type of trailer, fuel surcharges, tolls, driver availability, and any additional services such as loading/unloading assistance or expedited shipping. It’s best to get a detailed quote from the service provider.
