As the term implies, flatbed trucking is a type of shipment using flatbed trucks. The type of vehicle used for this type of trucking differs mainly because of the absence of enclosed containers. These trucks are used when items to be shipped are irregular in size or that might be too big for containers cube vans carry.
Due to the absence of doors and roofs, goods transported through flatbed trucks are retained by ropes or chain. This also requires that loads shipped using this truck are not delicate and prone to effects of weather.Ansæt Flatbed Truckers
