Flatbed Trailer Uses

Flatbed trailers are among the most common types of trailer transportation due to their convenient open-deck design. With no sides, top, or rear enclosures, flatbeds provide valuable versatility for transporting oddly shaped and taller loads, such as oversized farm and construction equipment and attachments. The open-deck design also provides flexibility for loading and unloading, as this can be done from all sides, or from above, using forklifts and cranes.

About Flatbed Trailers

Flatbeds are typically 8.5 feet wide and 48 to 53 feet long, although extendable stretch versions are available for hauling longer loads. Flatbeds can accommodate cargo capacities up to about 48,000 pounds and load heights up to 8.5 feet high. Exceeding these limits may require obtaining permits, although opting for a step deck trailer, which can handle loads up to 10 feet tall, is an option. FR8Star has a network of thousands of flatbed transportation companies available, with rates based on cargo weight, dimensions, shipping destination, fuel prices, and various market factors.
