Flatbed Tractor Trailers are most often used to transport large sized and heavy weight cargo including special machinery, turbines, totes, valves, heavy oilfield machinery, oversize gaskets, containers, large crates, lumber and more. The main advantage of the drop deck trailer over a standard flatbed is the ability to lower the center of gravity and keep top heavy loads lower to the ground, increasing the stability of the cargo.
