Step Deck Trucking & Shipping Service

step deck truck shippingLogistics Group International (LGI), a leading third-party logistics provider, provides step deck trailers for oversize and over-height cargo shipping and freight services. The use of step deck (drop deck) trailers allows for your cargo up to 10’ high to ship without having to order over height permits. We transport shipments throughout in the United States, Canada, and Mexico, working with an extensive network of experienced, professional carriers that specialize in over-dimensional and oversize transport. Our team of qualified logisticians manages and monitor your shipment, ensuring your cargo’s safe and timely delivery at competitive prices.  

LGI's experienced staff will determine if your loaded cargo height will require the use of a step deck trailer. In addition, 95% of all drivers pulling step deck trailers carry with them a full set of drop tarps to keep water and road grime from damaging cargo with electronics or new machinery that is freshly painted, ensuring your cargo will arrive in good condition.
