Why Curtainsider Trailers?

Curtainsiders are cost effective workhorses suitable for many operators who use forklifts to load predominantly from the side; perhaps without a loading bay facility.

Alternatively, you can load from the rear on a bay and off the side at the point of delivery (and vice versa).
