If this keeps up, the truck manufacturers might have to bring back COEs.

You can read the press release about this at itdtrailers.com. Says Walmart had 4 of the trailers & 2 trucks built for a 1 year pilot program. The drom box is unique too , it slides toward the trailer for unloading.

I did a stint as an unloader at a Walmart in Whitecourt, AB. The shift was 4-12 and with a regular 53' trailer it took a team of three guys four to five hours to unload; the rest of the shift was moving the items out to the store floor. With these supercube trailers I can see either needing more unloaders or a longer unloading time...

Well Walmart did just say they were going to hire something like 100,000 Veterans.

Would 7 more feet of trailer be that much more work? You can still only gross 80,000 on these, or? Plus a drom, You couldn't pack too much more freight on it, depending on what you are hauling.
