When you choose American Freight for your San Francisco power only trucking company, you expect the best possible experience. We STRIVE to provide:
Power only trucking is when only the tractor and driver is hired to connect to and deliver a pre-loaded trailer. This is common when there is an unexpected amount of freight or excess freight with more trailers than tractors available to deliver.
Tractor trucks are the equipment used by a carrier on a power-only job. Most trucks are able to accommodate a wide variety of trailer types with an equipped adjustable fifth wheel so that a customer can pre-load their freight, whatever it may be. All types of loads are carried and delivered with power-only trucking, including flatbeds, chassis, containers, exhibition trailers, special event trailers, dry vans, refrigerated vans, log trailers, and specialty trailers for local runs or long hauls. When the trailer comes with the job, all a carrier needs is an engine and the proper endorsements to carry it. When you’re looking to send or deliver a power only load, talk to the team at American Freight.
The driver is always responsible for the safety of the load when it’s on the road. They have the final say as to whether a load has been properly secured and may request that it be reloaded so that it reaches its final destination in one piece and without incident.
Yes, these two terms refer to the same kind of freight hauling.
