step deck transportation

Step deck trailers with lower and upper decks give the adaptability needed to transport large and atypically shaped freight in a secure and effective manner.

What you need to know about Step Decks?

The kind of freight transportation known as step deck shipping is a specific mode of transport that offers particular kinds of cargo a number of benefits not offered by other modes. The construction of step decks, which are also sometimes referred to as drop deck trailers, includes the incorporation of two distinct deck levels, namely an upper deck and a lower deck. When transporting goods that are taller than what can be accommodated by a flatbed trailer, this design ensures that stability is maintained throughout the process.

Step deck trailers are exceptionally useful for the transportation of huge and tall things such as machinery, building supplies, industrial parts, and even some types of vehicles. Partnering with Route One is the best way to ensure that you are in compliance with regulations, have secure loading, and have a seamless transport procedure while keeping cost factors in mind when using step-deck shipping.

Benefits of Step Deck transportation

Height Clearance

Height Clearance

Step deck trailers are ideal for hauling heavier things like machinery or construction equipment while maintaining within height restrictions since they have more vertical clearance than flatbed trailers.

Improved Stability

Improved Stability

Their reduced deck height improves transit stability, lowering the chance of cargo shifting or tipping and resulting in a safer and more secure journey.

Versatile Loading

Versatile Loading

Step decks are adaptable for numerous industries because they allow for top and rear loading, which can accommodate various sorts of goods, including enormous or oddly shaped objects.

Fuel Economy

Fuel Economy

Step deck trailers feature a lower overall profile than conventional flatbed trailers, which reduces wind resistance and improves fuel efficiency, which can result in cost savings for long-distance hauls.

what can be transported on a step deck

Step deck transport is favored when handling big or non-standard freight since it gives flexibility and dependability for a variety of industries. Because of the lower height of the bottom deck, there is more room for tall cargo, such as prefabricated buildings, industrial machines, and large automobiles. Smaller objects or materials that don't need as much vertical space can be handled on the upper deck.

Construction machinery (such as bulldozers, excavators, and cranes), huge cargoes (such as parts for wind turbines or prefabricated buildings), boats and yachts, and specialty goods like logs, timber, and steel beams are all frequently transported on step decks. They also safely move tractors and other pieces of agricultural machinery.
