Convoy has developed a grab-and-go system for its trailer pool that lets carriers bring only a power unit to pick up a preloaded Convoy trailer. The idea, according to Convoy, is to increase access for smaller power-only fleets to loads that would otherwise be handled by a fleet owning a large number of trailers.

By contrast, currently some shippers require trucking companies to drop empty trailers at distribution centers so freight can be preloaded before drivers arrive. That requires a fleet to have access to a surplus of trailers, which can keep smaller carriers from being able to take on these loads.

The company is currently operating power-only shipments with its Universal Trailer Pool with shippers in select areas, but has future plans to expand nationally.

Interested carriers can sign up to work with Convoy here and existing Convoy carriers can qualify for Power-only loads here.
