Drop Deck

Drop Deck

Drop decks or step decks are a type of truckload equipment option that are used when transporting construction equipment and versatile loads.

What Is a Drop Deck Trailer?

A drop deck trailer, also called a step deck, features a two-level bed with no sides or roof. It is similar to a flatbed, but the main deck is lower than the bed of a flatbed to accommodate taller-than-normal loads, as well as freight that needs to be loaded and unloaded from ground level with a forklift.

A lowboy trailer is another drop deck trailer with an even deeper bed and a loading ramp on the front (the part which connects to the truck). This is for taller-than-average and oversized loads.

What Types of Loads Need a Step Deck Trailer?

Typical drop deck loads include each of the following:
