What are Convoy power-only loads?

Convoy loads marked as power-only enable carriers of any size to haul drop-and-hook freight. Carriers and drivers just need their tractor – Convoy supplies the trailers. Benefits of hauling power-only include spending less time waiting for live loading at facilities, reducing wear and tear on your own trailers, and using Convoy’s trailers for other loads if you have time before your trailer return date.

Does Convoy charge trailer rental fees?

We don’t charge trailer rental fees, as long as they’re returned on time. We provide extra flexibility between delivery and empty trailer return, enabling carriers to choose to haul another load before they return the trailer, even if it’s not a load they booked with Convoy.

What are the benefits of Convoy’s power-only loads?

Convoy’s power-only loads let carriers of any size, including owner-operators, access large-shipper drop-and-hook loads. Before Convoy began offering power-only loads, this sort of freight was largely limited to large asset-based carriers. Carriers who haul power-only spend a lot more time driving, and a lot less time waiting at facilities for live loading. Additionally, carriers don’t pay daily rental fees for this program’s trailers. The trailers are in great shape, undergo regular maintenance, and help carriers arrive safely and on time.

How do I haul power-only loads?

What if I am unable to see any loads?

Convoy has power-only loads nationwide. We are continuously adding more, so if you don’t see power-only loads in your lanes, set up a power-only Saved Search to be the first to know when we have opportunities near you. In the meantime, ensure you have signed the Trailer Use Agreement (TUA), either in the Convoy app or online, so you are set up when these loads become available.
