Relay Trucking


Relay Trucking Definition

In the recent past, relay trucking has made a quantum jump. Today, more hauling and heavy equipment transport companies are implementing relay trucking. Relay trucking is a model where drivers change over after covering a set distance. The exchange happens at a pit-stop set by a dispatcher. Once the two drivers are close to the selected point they will communicate. They will then swap their trailers and turn around back to their directions or home terminals. In layman's language, a load is taken halfway, and is then transferred to another driver.

Why has Really-Trucking Become So Popular?

Driver retention has been a common problem for trucking companies. Drivers sometimes spend about 25 days a month on the road. Relay trucking is an approach by companies to reduce driver retention caused by the lack of work-life balance. The model also helps them spend more time with their families compared to a point-to-point approach. The model also allows drivers to enjoy proper rest at their homes.
