Things to consider when choosing a container flatbed trailer

The different types of container flatbed trailers are designed for use in different applications. Therefore, it is important to assess your needs before making a choice of the type of flatbed trailer you need. Here are key factors to consider:

Size: The container flatbed trailer is designed to carry different cargoes and containers: a flatbed for a 20ft container and another for a 40ft. If you need a flatbed for carrying an oversize load, then an extendable flatbed trailer will be the best choice to go for. The choice based on size is usually made by putting these requirements into consideration.

Load Capacity: The load capacity can also determine the type of cimc flatbed trailer that you will choose based on your needs. It can range from 10 tons – 80 tons. Again, this should be based on different requirements as defined by the local laws and regulations on such matters. The various container flatbed trailers take a considerable size and weight of cargo. However, all are not designed to carry the same amount of weight. On applications where weight considerations are to be made, the 2 axles or 3 axles container chassis trailer can really help. Heavy cargo can comfortably and securely be carried on these strong chassis made of high-yield materials.

Axles: The different axle capacity is based on transportation needs and requirements. However, every choice based on the axle configuration should also be in line with the local transportation laws and regulations. The different types of container flatbed trailers based on axle configuration include those carrying 12.5 tons per axle, 13 tons per axle and those taking 9 tons per axle. Make sure you choose the type permissible in your country based on the stipulated laws and regulations.

The number of axles for each trailer is also a vital consideration to make based on the weight of your cargo. The trailer structure is designed to support various wheel axle assemblies at various positions along its length. Your choice should be informed by your cargo needs and the laws regulating the use of tri axle 48ft flatbed trailers within your jurisdiction.

Tires: Different tire configurations are used based on the amount of load to be carried. However, this is also regulated through government agencies in respective countries. There are those that permit a single tire and those who don’t. For single tires, you must make sure that you have a reasonable distribution of tires along with the trailer.
