Cost of Operation

Our trailers, as assessed by independent fleet owners in the Chicagoland area.

Longevity
After visiting the factories of multiple regional players, our prospects found that MTM had the nicest facility and best manufacturing process.

Weight
Continuing their research, interested buyers found that MTM’s trailers were on average 967 lbs lighter than comparable manufacturers. The extra revenue per load that could be hauled in an MTM trailer can be seen via the following assumptions.

  • Our competitors: $5.57 revenue per ton x 21.5 tons x 7 loads = $838.28 per day
  • MTM Trailers: $5.57 revenue per ton x 22 tons x 7 loads = $857.78 per day
  • This results in extra revenue for an MTM trailer of $19.50/day, $97.50/week, or $3,900/year based on a 40 weeks per year of operation.

Cleaning
Interested asphalt haulers also spent around $3000 a year to clean their aluminum trailers, not taking into account accidents, driver dissatisfaction with the task, and lost production time for having to stop and clean. MTM insulated steel trailers are designed to simply dump and go, perfect for asphalt and aggregate.

Maintenance
Concluding their research, our buyers are confident in the projected lower maintenance costs of MTM as compared to other manufacturers, citing our attention to detail, and pins and bushings grooved with grease journals right in our factory.

Our certified welders make elliptical-bottom trailer tubs from just two 450 HARDOX Steel plates, halving the area where the tub is most vulnerable.

Unlike our competitors, we don’t buy stock pins. All our pivot points are grooved in the factory, using Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machines. Our custom bushings take and hold grease, quadrupling their life and preventing your trailer from being worn down and loosened up.
