MinStar Transport, a dry van carrier based in Eagan, Minn.,, launched its new Double Deck Trailer System. MinStar's can help companies double the amount of freight carried on a single truck while reducing shipping costs.

The Double Deck Trailer System deploys a second floor within the trailer that provides two levels of freight to be securely hauled in one trailer. Thus, shippers now have the ability to maximize floor space by hauling up to two loads in one MinStar Double Deck trailer.

The system was designed to maintain full trailer width and is stowed neatly at the ceiling of the trailer.

Shippers who will benefit the most are those that ship light non-stackable loads, such as rolling stock, electronics, paper products and displays. The second floor of the trailer also has the ability to reach multiple heights at the same time for hauling odd-sized loads.
