After nearly two years, the transportation industry continues to grapple with a shortage of available and qualified truck drivers, which is having a ripple effect on the country’s supply chain. Keep your drivers on the road and out of the yard with a TrailerCaddy Terminal Tractor from DJ Products.
Are Your Truck Drivers Actually Driving?
Just how deeply is this problem affecting companies? Ryan Dezurik of DJ Products relates a conversation one of our Sales Engineers recently had during a meeting with one of the top global event agencies.
According to the agency’s representative, “Hundreds of thousands of dollars are being spent annually to keep a CDL licensed driver on site to move trailers in and out of dock doors at their 39 locations across five countries.” This is time and money that would be better spent on actually transporting shipments from one location to another.
Save Time and Money with a TrailerCaddy Terminal Tractor
So what’s the solution? Our TrailerCaddy Terminal Tractor doesn’t require a specialized license for operation. As Dezurik explains, “The process to pull loaded trailers out of dock doors to stage for drivers and bring empty trailers into the docks for loading can be streamlined to help increase efficiency and save money.”
