Improve Trailer Management with a Motorized Trailer Dolly

Is it the best use of time and money to have licensed drivers moving fleet vehicles and trailers around the yard? Find out how our motorized trailer dolly can improve safety and productivity for your business.

Why CDL Drivers Aren’t the Best Solution

Drivers with CDLs have specialized training that allows them to operate trucks transporting goods across long and short distances which is what keeps the supply chain going. When you have to employ their services to move vehicles and trailers back and forth in the yard, this can result in the following obstacles:

  • Using drivers in this manner takes valuable time away from their principal function, which can cause delivery delays.
  • Unless you keep a dedicated driver onsite for this specific purpose, you have to wait until one is available, running the risk of bottlenecks as vehicles and trailers pile up.

Enter the Motorized Trailer Dolly

No matter how busy your yard is, an electric trailer dolly can keep traffic moving smoothly.

  • No specialized license or extensive training is required to operate the trailer dolly. With basic instruction, any of your employees can be ready to use one effectively.
  • A single worker can move vehicles and trailers weighing up to 100,000 pounds.
  • The dolly’s compact size allows for greater maneuverability in tight spaces and around corners.
  • Battery power means less environmental impact than running vehicle fuel-powered engines.
  • Cost is less than 25 percent of a new shunt truck and maintenance expenses are minimal.
