These lightweight trailers can be used to transport all kinds of loads, with the exception of bulk cargo. They can handle full truck loads (FTL) of course, but are also very suitable for partial loads.
Both sides can be opened quickly and the top can slide open as well, making it possible to load from above if desired.
