Step-Deck Transportation Services

Ship tall machinery or oversized loads with step-deck freight transportation services

Ship tall machinery or oversized loads safely while avoiding additional permit fees with step-deck freight transportation services from Superior Nationwide Logistics.

We offer a variety of step-deck, double-drop and stretch trailers to transport long, oversized and wide loads safely across the United States and Canada. The floor of a step-deck trailer drops down after clearing the tractor unit, which provides additional clearance to transport cargo that surpasses the height threshold of traditional flatbed trailers. Step-deck trailers are commonly called drop-decks. SNL offers a number of other transportation services as well. SNL will help you find the right shipment method to transport your load as efficiently as possible.

Drop-deck trailer benefits

  • Step-deck trailers allow for easy loading
  • Adjusting and shifting of cargo without intermediary loading techniques, which helps reduce safety risk and ensures load arrives at the end destination in good condition and time
  • Trailer is ideal for short- and long-haul transit shipping of specialized cargo across the United States and Canada securely
  • All of our trailers come equipped with dunnage, tarps, straps and other equipment to secure and safeguard loads

Don’t blow the budget by choosing the incorrect trailer for your transportation needs. Improperly vetted loads can lead to mounting permit fees or lost time, which can eat into profit margins.
