Flatbeds are the most flexible trailers as they can be used to transport almost any load. The benefit of using a flatbed trailer is that is can be loaded from all sides, from the top or from behind, which allows it to accommodate almost any load. Our flatbeds carry a maximum weight of 48,000 lbs and are 48 feet long, 8 feet 5 inches wide, and 8 feet 5 inches high.
Step deck or drop deck trailers are similar to a flatbed except they can accommodate a load with a height of 10 or 11 feet. Step deck trailers may also be used with ramps for shipments that can be driven on for easier loading. Our step decks can carry load of 48,000 lbs and are 48 to 53 feet long, 8 feet 5 inches wide and 10 to 11 feet high.
Double drop trailers have a deck in the front and the rear that is higher than the middle "well" of the trailer. The double drop is another option for transporting loads that are over legal heights. Our double drops have a 29 foot main deck, a 10 foot front deck and a 9 foot rear deck. Their main deck height is 11 feet 5 inches, front deck height is 8.5 feet and the rear deck is 10 feet. The width is 8 feet 5 inches.
Removable Goosenecks (RGNs) or "lowboys" are typically used to transport heavy loads but can be used for a variety of shipments. The neck of a RGN can be detached and will allow the front of the trailer to be used as a ramp. Our RGNs can transport loads of 48,000 to 100,000 lbs but additional axels can be used to accommodate even larger loads. The main deck is 29 feet long, with a front deck of 10 feet and a rear deck length of 9 feet. The RGNs main deck height is 12 feet with a front deck 8.5 feet and a 10 foot rear deck and a width of 8 feet 5 inches.
Dry van trailers are best for loads that need to protected or out of the elements. Their loading capacity is limited because they can only be loaded from the back of the trailer and would normally require a loading dock for loading and unloading. Our dry vans can carry a maximum weight of 48,000 lbs and are 53 feet long, 8 feet 5 inches wide and 9 feet 2 inches high.
Curtain Side trailers are versatile and allow the shipper and recipient flexibility in the loads they can carry and the method that they are unloaded and loaded. Loads in these trailers are protected from the elements and are accessible from the front or the back of the trailer and sliding tarp systems are also available. Curtain Side trailers are provide complete security while still being easy to open and close by the shipper, operator and the recipient.
Freight in the 50 to 160 tons of cargo range can be carried with our multi-axle trailers. Freight in the 200 to 225 tons of cargo range can be carried by out dual lane trailers which use more wheels to distribute the weight over the surface area of the trailer. Dual-lane trailers can be up to 132 feet long and are designed for maneuverability of this length and weight through intersections and turns. The most common axle designs are 6,7,8,9,10,11,13 and 20, however the number of axles can vary by manufacturer.
