Pup-Trailer Trucking Definition
A pup trailer refers to a small trailer, usually between 26 to 28 feet, and commonly pulled in singles or triples. Most companies use pup trailers to make deliveries to their clients in various destinations.
Benefits of Pup-Trailer Trucking
Companies such as Heavy Equipment Transport have different preferences for using pups. For instance, when used singly, a pup trailer confers a more compact container that is suitable for use in urban areas where roads may be hard to maneuver when using longer trailer forms. It is also a great option when the roads are too narrow and traffic is thick.
Since pup trailers are shorter, there are a variety of routes that the trucking company can consider. This may help shipping companies save time, reduce the shipping costs significantly, and make the logistics processes easier. Additionally, when a client hires a company such as Heavy Transport Equipment to transport loose cargo such as coal, the option to use dump pups is essential.
What Cargo is Best Transported Using Pup-Trailer Trucking?
When used singly, the pups are small in size and may be seen to carry significantly lesser loads. However, the capacity to combine it with a traditional truck makes up for the seemingly small size. Pup-trailer trucking is also essential when one purchases a large piece of machinery that can be disconnected, but still cannot fit into the conventional flatbed trailer. Combining one or two pup-trailers helps in such situations.
A pup-trailer is a common and valuable option for those in agriculture, manufacturing, and construction industries. These small trailers can be used to effectively transport building materials and to make home products delivery. Pup-trailers are also used to transport dry goods as well as ship heavy but relatively small-sized equipment. Heavy detachable equipment can also be transported using pup-trailer trucking.
