What is a flatbed trailer?
Because freight comes in all shapes and sizes, sometimes a specialized approach is necessary for getting a shipment to its destination. If it’s heavy, wide, overweight or oversize, it requires transportation outside of what a standard enclosed freight trailer can accommodate. That’s where flatbed shipping comes in. Like the name indicates, a flatbed truck or trailer is one with a flat bed and no sides or roof — enabling freight to be loaded and unloaded from the top, sides or rear.
