Walking Floor Trailers - A Unique and Flexible Cargo Solution

Walking floor trailer - A specialist box trailer with moving floor for easy loading and unloading of mixed cargo.

What is a walking floor trailer?

Walking or moving floor trailers provide a unique solution to the age-old problem of easy on and off-loading.

Thanks to its moving deck, it is possible to load cargo onto the trailer while the walking floor moves it safely and securely to the back. Unloading is also as easy with the cargo conveyed to the edge of the trailer for removal by forklift.

The walking floor trailer uses a system of moving horizontal slats that slide back and forth to inch the cargo forwards or backwards.

The slats operate via powerful hydraulic rams beneath the trailer and can easily move fully loaded pallets along the truck bed. This process makes cargo handling a one-person process. Moreover, it negates the need for a forklift or pump truck to enter the trailer. 

The distinctive cargo-moving properties of the walking floor trailer also offer unique load-carrying opportunities, not possible with conventional trailers.

A moving floor trailer is ideal for palletised cargo. Yet, the unique method of unloading means it can also handle loose bulk cargo such as wood chips or gravel. The flexibility to handle such diverse cargo minimises empty returns.
