Flatbed

Whether you require a regular flatbed or a multi-axle trailer, we have you covered.

Flatbed trucking and transport is an important transportation service for all companies that ship or receive shipments of freight that cannot be transported by standard dry vans. There are several reasons why freight cannot be transported via a standard 48’ or 53’ dry van.

The primary reason a flatbed is utilized is when the freight cannot be loaded into the dry van trailer via forklift through the rear trailer doors. This is typically because the freight dimensions or freight weight are too excessive. The dry van trailer’s floor has a maximum weight capacity that can be exerted by the forklift on the trailer floor. When this weight capacity is exceeded, the forklift cannot drive onto the trailer. In these cases the trailer will be loaded from the side or from overhead. Then in some cases a forklift does not have the capacity for the weight of the freight, thus two forklifts will be used, or a crane or gantry has to be used. In these cases only a flatbed trailer will be used, because a dry van cannot be loaded from above and from the sides.

The second is the flatbed trailer will be picking up at, or delivering to a location that has no loading dock. In this instance, a forklift or a crane will be utilized to unload the trailer.

The third example is when the length dimension of the freight is very long, such as when transporting pipes, lumber, or rebar wire.

The fourth instance is when the freight is simply suitable for flatbed trailers. This applies to building materials, crated boxes and other materials, not susceptible to the elements of the road such as rain, dust or snow. If the flatbed transit route is through an area with little rain or that never gets very cold, use of a flatbed trailer is a viable option.

Flatbed Freight Quote

Getting a flatbed freight quote should be done one to two weeks in advance of the ship date. This is primarily to obtain the most favorable market rate. If booking two to three days before the ship date, the availability of flatbed tractor-trailers will be much less, thus the price range will be limited due to low availability.

Flatbed Trailer Types:

  • Conestoga
  • Curtain Van
  • Double Drop
  • FlatBed
  • FlatBed – Air-Ride
  • Step Deck
  • Landoll Flatbed
  • Lowboy
  • Removable Goose Neck – RGN
  • Side Kit Trailer
