A curtain side truck is a type of trailer that is commonly used for shipping and transportation of goods. It is a combination of a dry van and a flat deck trailer, offering the protection of a dry van and the convenience of a flat deck.
On this page, we will look at the different aspects of a curtain side truck and its advantages over traditional trailers.
A curtain side truck is designed with a flexible tarpaulin curtain attached to a metal frame that can be rolled up and down. The tarpaulin covers the sides and roof of the trailer, providing protection for the cargo inside.
The curtain can be easily opened, is allows for easy loading and unloading of goods.
The tarpaulin curtain provides protection against weather, dust, and debris, making it ideal for shipping perishable goods or fragile items, or live stock. It also enhances the security of the cargo, as the curtain can be closed and secured with a lock.
Require temperature control for your shipment? You’ll require a reefer truck (refrigerated truck).
Like a flat deck trailer, a curtain side truck offers convenient loading and unloading, as the curtain can be easily opened to access the entire trailer.
This makes it ideal for shipping large or bulky items that may be difficult to load through traditional trailer doors. The rear door of traditional dry vans or flat decks can sometimes be limiting for certain sized or shaped freight.
A curtain side truck provides versatility and flexibility in freight shipping. It can be used for a wide range of goods, from perishable items to large machinery. It is also suitable for various shipping methods, such as cross-border shipments, intermodal freight, and ocean transportation.
