Great Dane has established a trio of new flatbed trailer distribution centers located across the U.S., including Trudell Trailers in Milwaukee, Minnesota; Northeast Great Dane in Florida, New York; and Crossroads Trailer in Denver, Colorado.
“With the increase in U.S. oil production and construction spending over the past few years, the demand for flatbed trailers has increased exponentially. In order to meet that need, we expanded our flatbed stock program and are continuing to add more distribution centers across the country,” said Keith Monroe, Great Dane’s director of flatbed product sales.
Great Dane’s network of distribution centers also includes Crossroads Trailer in Albert Lea, Minnesota; Great Dane’s flatbed manufacturing facility in Huntsville, Tennessee; and Great Dane’s corporate-owned branches in Dallas, Texas; Columbus, Ohio; and Atlanta, Georgia.
The company’s stock flatbed program features Freedom flatbed trailers constructed of steel, aluminum or a combination of both in various configurations, including:
- Freedom SE all-steel flatbeds available in 48- or 53-foot models with extendable options to 80- or 90-feet.
- Freedom LT steel-aluminum combination flatbeds available in 48- or 53-foot, straight or drop deck models.
- Freedom XP all-aluminum flatbeds available in 48- or 53-foot models and backed by a 10-year warranty.
A range of additional specifications are also available to choose from, including toolboxes, tire inflation systems, coil packages, cargo restraints and more. Great Dane spreads its stock throughout its branches, dealerships and distribution centers, and also has the ability to pull stock from any location across its network to meet a customer’s specific needs.
