Drop Deck Semi-Trailer

If you carry high loads, machinery, silage or are just seeking to maximise your cubic capacity, the Freighter Drop Deck Semi-Trailer is your answer.

The Freighter Drop Deck Semi is available as a single trailer, lead, tag, B-double or road train configuration.

Featuring Freighter’s short, extra strong gooseneck, the Drop Deck Semi can be specifically engineered to optimise pallet capacity and spacing on both upper and lower decks, depending on your freight requirements.

The Drop Deck Semi-Trailer can also be provided with optional pull out ramps to allow machinery to be driven between the lower and upper decks. Optional hydraulic ramps at the rear are a popular option, together with a beaver-tail rear end.

Driving between the lead and tag trailer can also be achieved through the use of Freighter’s “half moon decks” to create a complete drive-through combination. These and other optional features are shown below.
