No matter how far it’s being shipped, large machinery and agricultural or building materials require attention to detail, the right equipment, and carefully planned logistics to arrive safely and on time. Joski Trucking’s step deck trailers, also known as drop deck trailers, have become the go-to source for businesses looking to meet maximum legal height and weight requirements.
That’s because step deck trailer heights are lower than a standard flatbed. With your oversized freight closer to the ground, we can use more direct routes and avoid the need for special permitting and escorts. Joski has double drop step deck trailers that provide an extra 38 inches to be transported without special routing or permits for your tallest freight shipping needs.
Federal regulations limit step deck loads to a maximum height of 11 feet 6 inches and a width of 8 feet and 6 inches, with a weight limit of 48,000 pounds. However, states have different regulations that can make logistics a nightmare for extensive step deck trailer hauls. Joski’s custom logistics cover routing, permitting, and escorts. Our solutions ensure your freight arrives safely and on time, whether it’s a local, regional, or long-haul shipment.
