A step deck trailer is a semi-trailer platform without walls or doors. It has two deck levels, both positioned closer to the front. With two decks, the different deck levels are designed to clear the edge of the tractor uni and drop down to handle taller loads. This also makes it possible to stack goods on the lower level is a great way to use the extra space for transporting more products at a time. In comparison to standard flatbed trailers, step deck trailers are advantageous considering height permits, forklift maneuver, and equipment diversity.

The most important advantage of a step deck trailer is that no additional permits are necessary when transporting higher loads and that they are designed specifically to be able to place cargo lower down to avoid height restrictions.  

Step deck trailers are ideal for use of forklifts for loading and unloading, which becomes easier and safer since step deck trailers are lower to the ground than flatbed trailers. Eliminating height using this kind of trailer, there is no need to lift the fork up as high to pick up the cargo and unload it.
