Hardwood Trailer Decking Carries the Weight

What carries the weight when it comes to trailer decking?

Hardwood trailer decking has been a popular choice for generations and remains popular today due to the strength and longevity that hardwoods like Keruing Trailer Decking provide. You’ll see hardwood truck decking in use in applications ranging from restorations of historic trucks and pickups, to railroad flatcars and semi-trailer trucks from old to new.

Here’s an example from 2012 when the New York Transportation Authority had to move subway cars (you can see train axles in the photo) via oversized flatbed trucks to their new home on the Rockaway Peninsula. The flatbed trailer shown is a popular option where steel and hardwood are paired.
