Eagan, Mn.—Sept. 13, 2011—MinStar Transport, a dry van carrier, launched its new Double Deck Trailer System, which will help companies double the amount of freight carried on a single truck while reducing shipping costs.
“When designing new systems, we make sure to keep our shippers’ needs in mind every step of the process,” said MinStar Transport President Mitch Miller. “It’s great to bring companies this new system for non-stackable freight and see their amazement at the capabilities of the design.”
The Double Deck Trailer System deploys a second floor within the trailer which provides two levels of freight to be securely hauled in one trailer. Thus, shippers now have the ability to maximize floor space by hauling up to two loads in one trailer. The system also helps to reduce fuel costs for shippers by only having to pay for one load versus two. This innovative system was designed to maintain full trailer width and is stowed neatly at the ceiling of the trailer.
MinStar’s shippers have taken notice of the system’s capabilities. Although their system was designed for hauling rolling stock, many shippers have discovered the possibilities of doubling the amount of palletized non-stackable freight in a trailer load. Shippers who will benefit the most are those that ship light non-stackable loads, such as rolling stock, electronics, paper products, displays and many more. The second floor of the trailer also has the ability to reach multiple heights at the same time for hauling odd-sized loads.
