Flatbed trailers are a common type of equipment that allows over-dimensional freight shipments. Flatbed is an open type of trailer with sides and no roof, therefore, it is not protected from external influence. Flatbed shipping is common among industrial shippers that move bulky equipment, machinery, steel, pipes, rigs, and other freight of unusual sizes and shapes. Industrial freight is our specialty, so you can be confident your flatbed shipment will be handled by a team of seasoned industry professionals.
Accurate dimensions and shipment information are extremely important when it comes to
flatbed shipping. Flatbed trailers are versatile, but this kind of shipping requires precise dimensions in order to move your freight safely and on-time. In most cases, over-dimensional flatbed trailers can handle freight up to 160 feet long, 18 feet tall, 18 feet wide and about 200,000 pounds.
It is important to know that flatbed freight shipping does not suggest freight protection from weather conditions. If your freight is perishable or vulnerable to external factors like rain, wind, or snow, flatbed shipping may not serve your needs.
