Flat Bed Truck (S/F)

Disambiguation Links – Flat Bed Truck (C/N)

A flatbed truck is a type of truck which can be either articulated or rigid. As the name suggests, it has an entirely flat, level ‘bed’ body with no sides or roof. This allows for quick and easy loading of goods, and consequently they are used to transport heavy loads that are not delicate or vulnerable to precipitation, such as construction equipment, and also for abnormal loads that require more space than is available on a closed body.

One such truck was seen in the background outside the trailer at Dr. Grant’s dig site near Snakewater, Montana.
