Also referred to as a drop deck flatbed truck, a step deck truck adds versatility to a regular flat trailer by allowing for the transport of taller cargo. It uses a step down from one level to a lower level (an upper and lower deck) to accommodate height.

A free load board can be okay if you’re just starting out, but it might lead to frustration quite quickly when your business ramps up and you get busy. Like anything else, you get what you pay for. And sometimes, with a free load board, you get bad, outdated, inaccurate data, low-paying loads that cost you in the long run, and clunky technology that holds you back instead of moving you forward. A better approach is to start off on the right foot. At just $42 a month, even our basic load board pays for itself many times over and makes light work of the heavy lifting that comes with the back-office tasks of running a business.
