In today’s global economy, companies are obtaining materials from and sending products to points farther away than ever before. Consequently, most businesses have seen their freight costs increase significantly in recent years. If your company hasn’t experienced that rise, you’re lucky.
There was a time when moving and storing everything from raw materials to finished goods was simpler. Business owners face much more significant resource management challenges today. Why? In short, supply chain issues have complicated the processes of bringing supplies in and shipping products out.
Whether you need to rent or lease semi trailers regularly or infrequently, you should find a source you can rely on and trust. In other words, you want to identify a semi trailer leasing partner, not a provider.
If your company brings in or ships out anything from raw materials to finished products, you probably utilize semi trailers of various types. This may include dry vans, refrigerated trailers, flatbeds, lift gates, etc. If you provide that equipment, you know that it requires significant work to keep track of your inventory, including ensuring that every trailer is maintained correctly.

It’s more common today than ever to see telescopic semi trailers on the road. Also called extendable flatbed trailers, expandable flatbed trailers and stretch-deck trailers, they can carry especially long items that standard flatbeds can’t accommodate.
As the transportation industry looks for ways to move to renewable, clean energy sources, the focus often is on powering trucks. However, researchers and manufacturers are increasingly looking at the energy needs—and the energy-generating potential—of semi trailers.
Hauling a semi trailer safely is no easy task. Countless variables come into play, including the weather, road conditions and the type of semi trailer you’re hauling (dry van trailer, flatbed trailer, refrigerated trailer, etc.).
Whatever type of over-the-road semi trailer you’re hauling—dry van trailer, flatbed trailer, refrigerated trailer, etc.—winter weather poses unique challenges, both for the trailer and the tractor pulling it. To ensure that you get to your various destinations safely, it’s vital that you take action to protect your rig from the elements.
Even for the most experienced drivers, hauling a semi trailer on snowy or icy roads poses some significant challenges. From increased stopping distances to poor visibility, winter weather greatly increases the risk of an accident. And, of course, winter storms can move in quickly and turn dry pavement into a treacherous “skating rink” in a matter of minutes.
