- Up to five possible TriHaul™ routes

- Potential for additional revenue from TriHaul route
With year-round crops out of the McAllen, Texas produce market, it's typically a very active lane for temp-controlled equipment. But, instead of taking the usual round-trip route from Dallas to McAllen, if you added a leg to Shreveport, LA (another hub for food producers), you could boost your revenue by 49%.
The added leg does increase your mileage, but it's just 27% more miles, which can easily be accomplished in the same number of days as the Dallas to McAllen trip.
