ABOUT FLATBED TRAILERS
Flatbed is a type of trailer which can be either articulated or rigid. As the name suggests, its bodywork is a flat, level ‘bed’ with no sides or roof. This allows for quick and easy loading of goods. Consequently, we use them to transport heavy loads not delicate or vulnerable to rain, and also for abnormal loads that require more space than is available in a closed body.
These types of trailers have a solid bed, usually of wooden planks. They are with no roof and fixed sides. To retain the load there are low sides, too, as a ‘drop-side’ truck. A ‘stake truck’ has no sides, but has steel upright pillars, which may be removable, again used to retain the load. Drivers who drive these type of trucks, must deliver perishable cargo in perfect condition and must pre-cool refrigerated units before loading the goods to ensure a stable and correct temperature.
