 Investigative Report: The Impacts of Wasted Space in Trailers

If you are a member of the trucking industry then you are probably familiar with the saying, a truckload is not a truckload.  While a trailer may appear to be full, often it does one of two things:  1) either takes up the entire floor space but does not stack to the ceiling nor reach the maximum 80,000 lb weight limit or 2) maximizes the weight but does not fill the entire trailer.  In this investigative report, we’ve asked transportation professionals for their thoughts on the impacts of wasted space in trailers as well as innovative solutions for solving this problem.
