Trailer Repositioning

A strategic practice in logistics, where empty or underutilized trailers are moved to areas with higher demand.

What is Trailer Repositioning?

Trailer Repositioning is often used to avoid deadhead miles. Trailer Repositioning plays a critical role in maintaining operational efficiency, reducing transportation costs, and ensuring that trailers are available in the right locations to meet customer demands and shipping requirements. Shippers can also save money by using the load-out trailer repositioning technique. 

In many cases, multiple flatbed style trailers can be transported at once as another flatbed’s load. In other cases, power-only trucking companies can be hired to move empty dry vans.
