Demountable body system for smaller trucks
Feb 1, 2009 12:00 PM
The new Demountable Hybrid System is a “swap-body” system designed specifically for Class 3 to 5 trucks. Developed by Demountable Concepts, it allows companies to make more deliveries per day while reducing rush loading and double handling by using multiple demountable bodies with each truck.
Instead of pulling and staging orders, and then loading them into the truck when it returns from a route, the entire order can be loaded directly into a free-standing demountable body at the facility. When a truck finishes a delivery route, the empty body is swapped with an already loaded body, allowing the truck to get back on the road in around ten minutes.
Each truck's chassis is equipped with a lock-down system for the mounting and demounting of free-standing cargo bodies.
Separating the body from the truck enables companies to spend less to increase their delivery capacity by acquiring additional bodies instead of purchasing more trucks.
