How to Become an Owner-Operator Truck Driver

What Is Power-Only Trucking?

A power-only truck is one that does not have a trailer attached to it. It is instead utilized to tow another trailer (such as a dry van or flatbed) behind it.

Power-Only Trucking is the practice of using a truck to transport goods or materials without a trailer. This practice is used when there is no need to carry the goods or materials in the trailer, such as when they are going to be unloaded at their destination.

Power-Only Trucking is most commonly used in the construction and waste management industries. It can also be used for other industries that have products that are not packaged for shipping and are only needed for short distances, such as food vendors, scrap metal haulers, or newspaper delivery services.

How Does Power-Only Dispatch Work?

Power-only trucking is a method of dispatching trucks that generally only requires the driver to bring the truck to the shipper, load it, and deliver it. Power trucking entails that you, as a driver, don’t have to take the trailer to the start destination ‒ instead, the client provides their own, fully loaded with intended freight.

The power-only dispatch method is used mostly by independent truckers, owner-operators, and small industries where there are many small shipments that are delivered at different times. This method is also used for less than full loads. In cases where oversized loads or hazardous materials are being hauled, the driver must have the appropriate qualifications for hauling such loads.

  • ✓ Power-only trucking is generally a cost-effective option because it decreases the cost of maintaining a trailer and paying for fuel usage on long trips.
