Flatbed trucks - Our fleet includes a variety of equipment to accommodate your freight

Flatbed shipping is the best solution for moving oversized, heavy, or irregularly shaped freight that cannot fit in an enclosed trailer.
Before you book a shipment with us, answer these questions to determine whether you need a dry van or a flatbed:
• Is your load over-dimensional or over-weight (over 2,800 lbs.)? 
• Does your freight need to be loaded from the side or with the help of a crane, forklift, or from a roll-off platforms?
• Are you shipping industrial machinery, farming equipment, construction material, lumber, oil & gas equipment, or other large cargo?
• Do you deliver to oil & gas sites or require port access?
Since flatbed trailers can be loaded from either side, as well as the top and back, they offer flexibility for uniquely shaped commodities that cannot fit in an enclosed dry van trailer. From industrial machinery to construction materials and building equipment, there are many ways to use flatbed shipping.
