Milestone Launches National Mobile Warehousing & Storage Product Line

ST. CHARLES, MO (December 12, 2018) – Milestone Equipment Holdings, a national leader in trailer and chassis leasing, is expanding its offerings to include a line of mobile warehousing and storage products. As the only national lessor with dedicated trailers for mobile storage applications, Milestone is positioned to be the industry leader for this kind of offering, with a fleet of 59,000+ trailers of varying specifications, sizes and vintages. This launch is the latest in Milestone’s recent expansions, which have included rapid growth of fleet size and additional locations over the past several years.

In preparation for the launch, Milestone developed a robust infrastructure that included the development of a 15-point quality inspection for the storage assets as well as operational mechanisms that can often deliver assets on site in as little as 24 to 48 hours. Milestone can also provide inexpensive trailer parking at one of its 25 branch locations across the United States if on-site storage space is a challenge.

Forward-Thinking

“We saw an opportunity to use our high-quality fleet to solve space constraints directly related to warehousing shortages and supply chain disruptions; providing expanded access and new solutions for our customers,” said Sarah Johnson, Executive Vice President of Mobile Warehousing and Storage for Milestone. “These forward- and reverse-logistic storage solutions address many of the demands driven by e-commerce, freeing up customers’ equipment. It’s exciting to be the only national single-source provider of this kind of trailer and storage network.”

The product line is comprised of trailers available for cartage, portable or fixed storage; with options that include 53’ or 48’ dry van trailers with roll-up or swing doors and air or spring ride. The services are supported by 25 branches across the country, with a team of dedicated customer service specialists. Milestone can provide flexible terms to address customers’ various volume and commitment needs. The company will also soon offer an enhanced online reservation request system and customer portal, both of which will be available in early 2019.

Opportunity

“In recent years, many companies have struggled with rapidly escalating logistics and warehousing costs, in part driven by the massive growth of e-commerce,” said Milestone CEO Don Clayton. “We worked closely with our customers to develop a product offering that delivers substantial cost savings and flexibility relative to traditional warehousing. Along with the significant investments we continue to make in late model equipment and the expansion of our branch network, we’re positioned to deliver an unparalleled range of solutions to our customers.”

Milestone Trailer Leasing

What We Do: Trailer Leasing Services with a Personal Touch

Milestone provides personalized service in trailer leasing and rentals to our customers – every day, all year long. We are committed to supporting our clients in the form of open-architected arrangements, flexible options and added-value services.

We have a complete range of equipment to fit any application including factory direct new 2017s, mid-range model years for economical over-the-road use, and well-maintained older units for cartage and storage use. In addition, we have a large quantity of 53’ air ride trailers that are 2012s-2013s available for rental and lease at competitive rates.

Our Trailer Leasing services include:

RENTAL

For short-term needs, seasonal/peak demands, rental may best suit your needs. With no minimum term, this selection will allow you to utilize the equipment in new lanes or pools as you determine the long-term need. In addition, our rentals are billed on 12 calendar months, not 4-week cycles, which results in 13 bills over the course of a year from some leasing companies. We provide competitive priced equipment for storage, cartage and over-the-road needs.

LEASING

Entering into a lease is the most cost-effective way to supply steady business pools and lanes. This allows for competitive monthly rate, not subject to rate increases during the lease term, and ensures you have the right asset when you need it. As a lease customer, you also gain priority status if and when you need to rent trailers on a temporary basis.

BUYING/SELLING

Looking to buy trailers? Give us a call for current inventory. Looking to sell trailers? Give us a call with your current inventory. As an example of our capabilities, we may be able to arrange a purchase of your fleet, then lease it back to you until you either purchase or lease replacement trailers, or arrive at the end of their utility in your operation. We have both the resources and the creativity to consider solving any problem you may have with respect to trailers.

TRACKING SERVICES

Milestone partners with a variety of satellite tracking (GPS) services to provide the platform that best suits your needs, meaning you do not have to accept whatever system we happen to be offering. Tracking is available on both rental and lease equipment. We take care to ensure the customers can access the internet portal to provide accessibility to tracking. There is no additional fee for tracking, it is included in your monthly rental or lease rate.
