Liftgates Are Exposed To Winter's Dirty Ice & Snow

We have the capacity to schedule our trucks and crews around the special needs of our clients.

Schneider’s Denver based trucks have special needs. They make deliveries that require lift gates on each trailer and the gates have to be let down to get the back of the trailers clean. While lift gates work fine most of the time, Denver’s winter weather can be hard on them. The dirty snow and ice that gets thrown back from the tires can get stuck in the tracks and joints and cause jamming.

One of Schneider National’s main concerns is making sure the underside of the trailers are cleaned to remove the mag chloride used on Colorado’s roads. Colorado’s Department of Transportation (CDOT) uses magnesium chloride on the highways to melt ice and snow. If not removed on a consistent basis, the mag chloride can eat into wiring and connections and prevent the lift gates from working.

The other big problem is Schneider’s Denver location does not have access to water. They have about 50 tractors and trailers to be washed and one pressure washing truck doesn’t carry enough water to wash all the units, especially in the winter when they’re extra dirty. They needed a wash company that could send more than one truck to get their fleet cleaned at a time that fit their needs.

“We have the capacity to schedule our trucks and crews around the special needs of our clients,” said Joel Shorey, President of Wash On Wheels. “They can’t have their trucks sitting around waiting to be cleaned. Being able to get the job done when they need it done is one of the biggest reasons our clients call us.”
