Building and Construction Materials

Materials used in building and construction, eg, metal piping, cranes, I-Beams, and steel frames, etc, are usually hauled by flatbed trailers. Most of these construction and building materials are oddly shaped and hence can only be hauled using flatbed trailers.

Also, while a lot of items used in the forestry industry are heavy-duty, flatbeds come in different configurations which make it easy to hauls this equipment efficiently. In addition, they have aids that make it easy to secure freight during transportation.


Tall Freight Haulage

Most flatbed trailers are used for the transportation of tall freight. Flatbeds do not have sides or a roof and that is why they are the best for hauling items that are taller than standard freight. They have the right features to enable them to carry a really tall freight without violating any road safety rules and regulations.


Baled Tires

When tires become worn out and can’t be used anymore, they are distributed for recycling. Old tires are compressed to make bales in which they are transferred in, and these bales are heavy duty. To move them from the yard to the recycling point, they are out in bales. Flatbed trailers are then used to haul these bales to their respective destinations where they can be used for other purposes.
