By further analyzing the present transportation of truck-load and spare parts in automotive logistics, this study innovatively proposes the concept of “micro container transport” based on drop and pull transport of one vehicle with dual use. Besides, the paper elaborates the merits of this concept in spare parts transportation as well: on the premise of without altering conveyance, through the combination of micro container and truck-load transportation, it will significantly achieve the benefits of increasing efficiency while decreasing transportation costs in the meantime.
