Types of Semi Trailers In The Industry

"Flatbed" Trailers
With a capacity of up to 21 Tonne and up to 16 metres in length, flatbed trailers are a very common style used due to their versatility. These trailers are often used to carry steel and various products that don't need to be enclosed and protected from the weather. Flat Bed trailers have an easy loading process because they are completely accessible on the top and on all sides. Driving tends to be more difficult with flatbeds because they often are used to transport heavy loads.


Types of trailers

"Low Loader" Trailers
Low loader trailers are the lowest to the ground trailers that you can find. This design is so that they can easily load and unload industrial equipment such as tractors.

"Drop Deck" Trailer
Drop deck trailers are another type of flatbed trailer, comprising of two different levels and open to the elements. They can be used to transport large industrial equipment. Usually accompanied by a hydraulic ramp, loading is made easier.

"Extendable" Trailers
Extendable trailers provide additional flexibility over and above a regular flatbed trailer because of their ability to extend to accommodate the type of load. If a long load is not being hauled, the body of the trailer can be configured to be smaller and thus easier for the driver.

Tank Trailers
This type of trailer is shaped like a tank, as the name suggests. It transports any kind of liquid or dry bulk cargo - often used to transport gas. Highly trained drivers are required to drive these kinds of trailers because their weight makes it more difficult to drive. Drivers that are transporting gas also need to be mindful of the increased dangers if they get into an accident.
