No matter how heavy or oversized the load, we have you covered.
Flatbed transportation is for cargo that may not require the enclosure of a dry van. It normally can’t be loaded or unloaded from a dock or can’t fit within the dimensions of a standard truck trailer. The types of items carried are construction equipment, machinery, oversized loads, and other large materials.
Step-Deck Transportation carries tall cargo that exceeds the legal height limit if transported on a traditional flatbed trailer. Some of the examples where you may have already seen this transportation method used includes trucks carrying excavators, tractors, building materials, and other machinery.
Allows operations for LTL (Less-than-Truckload), PTL (Partial Truckload), and expedited shipping across extended distances. This transportation method is best for shipments of a time-sensitive nature, fragile cargo, high-value cargo, and shipments that do not fill an entire trailer or truckload during the haul.
We specialize in transporting loads that might be too difficult for other providers. We offer additional services including, but not limited to, Hazmat, Over-sized Loads, Tankers, Dump Trucks, Hoppers Dry Vans, and Rail Transportation!
