What is a Flat Bed?

In the shipping context, a flatbed is a type of trailer used to transport oversized or irregularly shaped cargo that cannot be transported in a standard container or trailer. Flatbed trailers have an open platform with no sides or roof, which allows for easier loading and unloading of cargo. They are often used to transport heavy machinery, construction materials, and other large items.
