Backhaul Restrictions with a Multi-Temp Trailer.
Consider your backhaul options when designing your trailer. Make it as large as you can to take advantage of backhaul opportunities.
You're probably already aware that a multi-temp trailer just can't carry a 53' foot load. You've got bulkheads you're trying to store, you've got an evaporator that's hanging down, you might have a low ceiling height because you're running in cities, and you might have a narrow width, 96 inches wide.
Consider this when you're buying a multi-temp trailer and build them as large as you possibly can so you're not missing out on backhaul opportunities because you're just a couple of inches too short one way or the other.
