The challenges and advantages of flatdeck low loader carriers
Flatbed Trucking is a transportation service designed to move oversized items on a flat, open loading area.
The trucking service is ideal for containers, pallets and bulk items that cannot be easily loaded into a delivery truck, such as steel rebar, long pipes, large machinery and vehicles.
Flat bed trailers are specifically selected for their versatility in handling all types of loads.
Low loader drivers typically earn higher salaries than other types of truck drivers because of the specialized skills they need to develop to properly secure their cargo.
The job of the low loader is a challenging but often a rewarding career that benefits both the customer and the driver.
From start to finish
In the contrary to typical truck drivers, who are focused on the loading and unloading process, the drivers of flatbed trucks are more involved with the safety of their cargo.
These soft straps protect the load and are padded so that they are not torn or rubbed off by sharp edges.
With steel cargoes like steel pipes or heavy equipment, thick steel chains are used to keep them in place.
On each side of the trailer the chain is looped around rails and secured tightly with a chain tie. If the load is not well secured, there is a high risk of accidents for the driver and the load
How It Works?!
Flatbed cargo is typically fastened tightly secured by woven nylon straps that are tightened with a winch.
