Flatbed trailers are among the most popularly used transportation trailers in the country. This type of trailer is usually preferred because it can hold almost any type of cargo. From oversized loads to specialty cargo, flatbed trailers can accommodate unique requirements. The features of flatbed trailers that make them so practical are the lack of a roof, sides or back. Unlike closed trailers, a flatbed trailer can carry large loads easily and without any restrictions. At Amplify Logistics, we offer flatbed transportations to help you easily ferry large items across the country.
Loading flatbed trucks
Since most cargo carried by flatbed trailers is large and heavy, the process of loading may require specialized tools and equipment. A forklift that can access the back and sides of the trailer is used to load cargo on the flatbed truck without any issues. Forklifts allow cargo to be loaded onto the truck from any angle. For cargo that’s extremely heavy or over-dimensional, a crane is mostly preferred in the loading process. Once the items are loaded on the flatbed truck, they are properly secured before the trip begins.
