A flatbed truck is a single chassis that consists of a cabin with a flat, level bed that does not have any sides or roof. As opposed to a flatbed trailer that requires a truck or tractor to pull it, flatbed trucks are a great option if you need to pull large, heavy, or oddly shaped cargo but do not have a vehicle that can pull a trailer that heavy. Flatbed trucks can be articulated or rigid and are best for hauling tall and heavy or oddly-shaped cargo.

Logging body flatbed trucks have a fixed middle beam and side support posts designed to carry logs. A straight truck can be used to transport logs if only log length material is being transported, but a different setup entirely is needed for tree-length logs or multiple bunks of log length material. The straight trucks used with logging body flatbed trucks will often have a loader mounted on the rear of the truck to assist with self-loading.
The flatbed truck is a towable truck that includes a flat body with no sides or roof. Because flatbed trucks are “open” in this fashion, they are able to carry industrial or large equipment that may not fit in other transportation vehicles with enclosed cargo areas. This open format also provides for easier loading and unloading, as cranes or other equipment can be used due to the lack of sides or a roof.
Also known as a drop deck or lowboy, a step-deck truck is a commercial flatbed truck used to carry cargo that is extremely tall and/or heavy. Transportation requirements limit the overall height of cargo that can be carried on trucks, so step deck trucks were designed to provide a lower clearance to allow industrial or tall machinery to be transported.
A stake bed flatbed truck is a type of flatbed that has removable posts or stakes mounted onto the side of the flatbed. These stakes or posts can be removed for loading or unloading, and then put back in place before transportation to ensure the cargo stays in place. This format is often used by farmers to haul livestock, feed, timber, and agricultural equipment.
The cargo that flatbed trucks are used to transport is typically very expensive, whether it be personal automobiles or heavy construction equipment. Knowing this, drivers want to be able to rest assured that the flatbed trucks they are hauling this precious cargo on are dependable and tough enough to keep their freight safe. Hyundai Translead knows this, which is why the company has put so much focus on its R&D efforts since it started in 1947. Using high-tensile steel for added strength and a hot-dip galvanizing process to ensure all components are protected from the elements, Hyundai flatbed trucks provide versatility, value, and durability for your next load of cargo.
The layman may look at a flatbed trailer and think that they are all basically the same thing, but they would be very wrong in that assumption. Utility Trailer Manufacturing Company is the oldest and third largest trailer manufacturer in the United States, and while their flatbed trailers may look like others they are drastically different. For example, their 4000 AE model looks like your standard all-steel flatbed truck, but the company was able to save a vast amount of weight (which saves on the driver’s fuel costs) by building to the same strength standards while using aluminum instead. Built with their patented cross member system and boasting a 47,000 lbs standard coil haul package, this American-made flatbed truck comes to you from an innovative brand that is known for its durability and quality.
In ancient times the vanguard was the group of elite soldiers at the front lines for battles, and much like their name implies Vanguard National Trailer Corporation leads the industry with new and unique technology and innovations that drive the efficiency of flatbed trucks forward. Their flatbed trucks are available in both lightweight steel VSF or fully aluminum models that both list 80,000 lbs distributed frame rating. While the strength alone may be something to consider, the fact that the fully aluminum model can deliver the same strength while being far lighter is a benefit that can help your pocketbook in the long run from reduced fuel costs.
