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.
Semi trailers have a long history, having been used to haul cargo for more than 125 years. Even so, companies in many markets continue to find new ways to use rented, leased or purchased semi trailers.
Do you lease semi trailers for your business to use, or are you considering leasing trailers? If so, it’s a good idea to develop a strategy that will enable you to maximize the benefit of those leases and your relationship with the provider.
