How It Works

WHY WE CREATED THIS SITE
We offer our Trailer Owner Members an easy and efficient way to deliver or reposition their trailers, while at the same time offering our Truck Operator Members an easy and efficient way to increase asset utilization by reducing empty miles.

The business practice of Trailer Owners trying to find qualified Truck Operators to deliver or reposition their trailers is not new. In fact, this is a common and time-consuming process.

When Truck Operators are in need of using another's trailer to reposition their trucks or trailers they are challenged with few options. This is where onewaytrailers.com can help!

The Worldwide Equipment Exchange, dba onewaytrailers.com has now changed all of that. The Exchange provides a Website where Trailer Owners post their trailer delivery or repositioning needs. Truck Operators search this database, find a match, move the trailer, and both parties become satisfied. It is virtually that easy.

HOW IT WORKS
Trailer Owner Members join onewaytrailers.com (the Exchange) to have the ability to post information, i.e. size, type, description, origin, preferred destinations, pickup and delivery times and rate on our website about trailers they own or control and have the right to allow others to use.

Trailer Owner Members = Trailer Manufacturers, Dealers, Motor Carriers (for hire or private), Railroads, Inter-modal, Leasing and Auction Companies, Financial Institutions and Federal and State Agencies.

Truck Operator Members who own trailers, such as Motor Carriers, are also allowed to act as Trailers Owner Members in the Exchange by posting their trailers that need to be repositioned. Carriers have other Carriers or Truck Operators help adjust your trailer pools by posting the availability of your trailers in markets where you have too many. Or, you can search our database for trailers to help you:

  • Increase Trailer Pools have another Carrier deliver your trailer into the city needed or arrive with your own trailer and depart with another's.
  • Decrease Trailer Pools have another Carrier take your trailer out of the city needed or arrive with another's trailer and depart with your own.

Because Carriers are being paid to move another's trailer or are offering to have theirs moved there is no other way that is less expensive to increase asset utilization while reducing lost opportunity costs.

Truck Dealer Members have decreased, or eliminated, the cost of delivering trucks. They can earn revenue by moving empty trailers with their newly sold or purchased trucks. No longer is bob-tailing their only delivery option. In addition, the Truck Dealer Members can offer their Owner Operator customers the opportunity to move a trailer with their newly purchased truck. This is a benefit to both parties! Their customers can immediately start earning revenue and avoid the uncomfortable situation of negotiating the first tank of fuel.

Towing, Drayage and Construction Company Members have a tremendous opportunity to increase profits. Since their bids already include the round trip cost to the job site they can earn extra revenue by moving empty trailers in the dead-head legs of their trips.

OTHER REASONS THAT CREATE CONSTANT DEMAND:

  • New Trailer Purchases - delivering equipment to designated cities
  • Dealer Stock Transfers - delivering equipment to designated cities
  • New Accounts - set-up initial trailer pools
  • Gained or Reduced Volume by Account - adjusting trailer pools
  • Seasonal Volume Demands - adjusting trailer pools
  • Lost Accounts - remove trailer pools
  • Driver Error or Abandoning Equipment - balancing equipment
  • Driver Terminations balancing equipment
  • Accidents and Road Breakdowns balancing equipment
  • Equipment Trades - taking delivery or returning equipment to designated cities
  • Acquisitions taking delivery or returning equipment to designated cities
  • Auctions - delivering equipment to designated cities
  • Bankruptcies and Repossessions returning equipment to designated cities

ASSET UTILIZATION = PROFIT!
