Launch of Haulio Prime Movers
Haulio has recently launched two prime movers units – a Volvo FM and a UD Quon – in partnership with ComfortDelGro Rent-a-Car (CRAC).
With the latest arrangement with CRAC, Haulio will now be able to offer hauliers prime movers for on-demand rental and port-related jobs such as Inter-Terminal Transfers.
Depending on demand, more prime movers may be added to the rental fleet in the future.
What will Haulio's Prime Movers be used for?
The prime movers will be available for 2 key uses:
- On-demand rental for Inter-Terminal Transfer jobs within the Port
- Prime Mover Leasing
1. On-demand Rental for Inter-Terminal Transfer jobs within the Port
As the world’s top transshipment hub, 85% of containers that arrive in Singapore are transshipped between vessels to another port of call.
Today, hauliers shift these containers within PSA’s ports – also known as Inter-Terminal Transfers (ITT). Haulio supports PSA by providing an on-demand, dynamic supply of hauliers for ITT.
With the launch of these prime movers within the port, Haulio hopes to offer hauliers an easier way to take ITT jobs using Haulio’s trucks, thus saving on their own asset costs.
2. Prime Mover Leasing
The prime movers will be made available for hauliers to rent. With this service, hauliers no longer need to keep spare capacities of prime movers, allowing them to maximise their own fleet and save on operational costs.
The rental service is currently in beta testing and is expected to go live in September 2019. It will be made available for hauliers through the Haulio Community Portal.
