Freight Monster™ Flatbed Trailers
Flatbed Trailers are used to transport oversized items that will not fit in a dry van. Flatbed trailers consist of just a load platform or floor, removable side railings, and a bulkhead to protect the semi tractor in front in case the load shifts forward. As a rule of thumb, flatbeds can carry almost anything that can be stacked or strapped down. Flatbeds can also have side kits that enable them to carry sand and gravel. Flatbeds Trailers are used if easy access to the load is needed from all sides of the trailer.A flatbed trailer has an entirely flat, level ‘bed’ with no sides or roof. This allows for quick and easy loading of goods. A Flatbed Trucking Company is often involved in transporting over-dimensional loads; freight is considered oversize when its dimensions are greater than the standard legal load size and weight. In the United States, over-dimensional or over-weight loads are those cargoes or containers measuring more than 8 feet 6 inches in width, or that are usually over 48,000 pounds.
