Tractor Trailer Options for Freight

Tractor Trailer OptionsWhen you have freight that needs to be shipped, one truck doesn’t always fit all freight. There are several tractor trailer options available for freight transportation.  Some freight items don’t need any extra care during transportation, while food and other freight items might require specific temperatures during transportation. Other items may be too large to fit in one tractor trailer versus another. Before you transport your freight, you must first observe the items you are shipping. Based on your freight, you can then make an educated decision about which tractor trailer to use in your situation.

Tractor Trailer Options


  1. Box Truck- This tractor trailer option is commonly used when transporting furniture, large boxes, and large appliances. Furniture companies favor these types of trucks that come in a variety of sizes. The cargo area is separate from the truck and sits on a frame.
  2. Refrigerated Trailer- The trailer of this truck has the ability to be set at a lower temperature than the rest of the truck. The cargo area of the tuck can be cooled by either carbon dioxide agents or a small diesel engine to ensure the freight stays at the appropriate temperature.
  3. Flat Bed- The cargo area on a flatbed truck is open and on a completely flat surface. Freight that is larger in size or heavier in weight can be transported by a flat bed, along with freight that can be exposed to varying weather conditions.
  4. Semi-Trailer- Normally known as an 18 wheeler, semi-trailers are commonly found on busy highways. This tractor trailer option is used to ship LTL and FTL loads.
