Trailers Used to Transport Standard 20FT Containers

Transporting standard shipping containers necessitates using various trailers depending on various factors. When moving a standard 20-foot shipping container, various trailers are suitable based on functionality. They include;

  • Container chassis trailers: This trailer is used to load the containers. They are preferable due to their simplicity, economical, strength, rigidity, and multiple variations.
  • Gooseneck trailers: A gooseneck container chassis offers reliability. Its braking system is dependable, and its suspension quality is top-notch. In addition, gooseneck trailers carry an electrical setup and a frame assembly.
  • Flatbed trailers are very popular in standard shipping container transport. They have some of the best features for shipping a standard 20-foot container. They are designed to accommodate different standard containers. The container is secured by twist-lock devices located at the bottom.
  • Extended container trailers: This trailer's extendable feature makes it highly suitable for shipping a standard 20-foot container. However, extreme attention is required during the placement of the container. Extendable trailers have a single disadvantage: when fully extended in length, they tend to cause traffic.
