The vast majority of lumber shipping services use standard flatbed trucks because loads of lumber shouldn't have excess size, height, or width requirements. Your lumber is typically bundled before it's loaded onto the truck and transported. Once the flatbed is completely loaded, the cargo is tied down to prevent shifting or sliding, as wood falling off of trucks is extremely dangerous to other motorists as well as damaging to the wood itself. Don't trust your shipment to anyone but the best – Tractor Transport. Give us a call today at (877) 373-0109 to get started!


What Types of Trucks Haul Lumber

There are special trucks used in the logging industry to carry timber (unprocessed wood). We carry lumber, which is the wood after it's been cut down, making it easier to move effectively. The vast majority of lumber shipping services use standard flatbed trucks because loads of lumber shouldn't have excess size, height, or width requirements.

Lumber is often pre-bundled in smaller bundles before it goes on a truck. Our clients in the logging industry use Tractor Transport to ship wood to retailers after it's been cut down and bundled. These bundles are loaded on the back of the flatbed using forklifts, similar to normal palate shipping. Usually, they are stacked up to two bundles high and depending on the length of the truck bed and the length of the lumber, as long as they can without damaging the stability of the truck.

Once the flatbed is completely loaded, the cargo is tied down to prevent shifting or sliding, as wood falling off of trucks is extremely dangerous to other motorists as well as damaging to the wood itself.

Tractor Transport Offers an Extensive Range of Trailer Choices To Haul Your Lumber:

FLATBED TRANSPORTATION SERVICES


Our most versatile and commonly used trailer by far is the standard flatbed trailer, made evident by the sheer number of them on the road every day. A great aspect of flatbed trailer shipping is the stability of the bed and the fact that these common carriers come in a wide variety of sizes and dimensions. A flatbed trailer, as the name suggests, is marked by a flat trailer surface that's able to be loaded with stability by balancing and securing cargo on the outside edges of the trailer.


Flatbed Trailer Specifications:
Max Weight: 48,000 pounds
Max Length 53 ft.
Max Width 8.5 ft.
Max Height 8.5 ft.

RGN (REMOVABLE GOOSENECK) TRANSPORT SERVICES



RGN Trailer Specifications:
Max Weight: 42,000+ pounds
Main Deck Length 29 ft.
Well Width 8.5 ft.
Legal Height Limit 11.6 ft.

The Removable Gooseneck (RGN) trailer has a detachable front end that turns the trailer into a ramp. Past the detachable section of the trailer, RGNs are equipped with a double drop formation that lends the payload an extra amount of height, usually around 12 extra inches. The variable nature of the RGN trailer allows it to accommodate cargo that is more difficult for less flexible trailers. Referred to as a "detach", the RGN is ideal for transporting less than standard cargo, equipment that is longer, taller, or otherwise a non-normal size.

EXTENDED RGN (REMOVABLE GOOSENECK) TRANSPORT SERVICES


Similar to the standard Removable Gooseneck Trailer, the extended RGN has an added section for additional length and capacity for particularly tricky transport jobs. When cargo is too long for the standard Removable Gooseneck (RGN), we sometimes employ the extended RGN. Like the standard RGN, the back portion of the stretch RGN is removable, creating a convenient ramp. The extended RGN has a versatile extension feature that allows it to meet an increased number of length requirements for cargo.


Extended RGN Trailer Specifications:
Max Weight: 150,000+ pounds
Main Deck Length 29 ft. - 65 ft.
Well Width 8.5 ft.
Legal Height Limit 11.6 ft.

DROP DECK TRANSPORT SERVICES



Drop Deck Trailer Specifications:
Max Weight: 48,000 pounds
Max Length 53 ft.
Max Width 8.5 ft.
Max Height 11 ft.

A drop deck, or "step deck" trailer resembles a standard flatbed model with a single drop in order to give the trailer the capacity for more cargo height. This is especially advantageous when the payload exceeds the standard height requirements for a regular flatbed. This is especially advantageous when the payload exceeds the standard height requirements for a regular flatbed. For especially large or oddly sized pieces of equipment, the drop deck trailers present a uniquely ideal solution; tractors, farming combines and large construction and industrial equipment.

EXTENDED DROP DECK TRANSPORT SERVICES


When a job necessitates a trailer that can carry an irregularly long piece of equipment or cargo, we employ the extended drop deck trailer. Like a flatbed with either a single or a double attached gooseneck, the extended drop deck gives the user capacity for additional height and length to meet the needs of a specific cargo load. Typically, the extended RGN is more flexible than the standard RGN, so it's only used when absolutely necessary.


Extended Drop Deck Trailer Specifications:
Max Weight: 45,000 pounds
Max Length 63 ft.
Max Width 8.5 ft.
Max Height 10 ft.

LOWBOY TRANSPORT SERVICES



Lowboy Trailer Specifications:
Max Weight: 40,000 pounds
Max Length 24 ft.
Max Width 8.5 ft.
Max Height 14 ft.

A lowboy is one of the lowest trailers to the ground, as its name suggests. Many heavy hauling tasks are carried out with the help of the lowboy trailer because of its use for extremely large, heavy, and oversized or over-dimension equipment. Typically when you see a sign that says "Oversize Load" on the interstate, the cargo being hauled is done so with a lowboy trailer. Many shippers use lowboy models as their top choice for these jobs due to their capacity to carry extremely heavy weights of cargo, and their stability as the lowest, off-the-ground option.

How Does Tractor Transport Ship Lumber?

You can use our reliable wood shipping services in a variety of ways. The first is standard transport, in which you schedule a pickup to load one of our flatbed trucks with lumber, after which we transport it to the destination.

We also offer power only services, when our customers have their own trailer. Many clients in the logging industry have flatbeds loaded with wood and either want to rent a truck or have us hitch up their trailer and take it to the destination.

If you have special needs for lumber shipping, we can discuss Less than Load (LTL) shipping. In LTL lumber transport, we'll put your wood on our truck with one or more other customers' wood going to the same region. This way, we save everyone money by combining trips.
