Great Dane recently established three new flatbed trailer distribution centers: Trudell Trailers in Milwaukee MN, Northeast Great Dane in Florida NY and Crossroads Trailer in Denver CO.
“We are excited to welcome these three new locations to our roster of distribution centers, so that we can provide even better and faster service in these key areas of the country,” said Keith Monroe, Great Dane’s director of flatbed product sales. “With the increase in US 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.”
In addition to the three new locations, Great Dane has five other distribution centers. These include Crossroads Trailer in Albert Lea MN; Great Dane’s flatbed manufacturing facility in Huntsville TN; and Great Dane’s corporate-owned branches in Dallas TX, Columbus OH and Atlanta GA.
Great Dane’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 also are available, including toolboxes, tire inflation systems, coil packages and cargo restraints.
Great Dane spreads its stock throughout its branches, dealerships and distribution centers. The company also has the unique ability to pull stock from any location across its nationwide network in order to meet a customer’s specific needs.
“In the flatbed world, customers want to be able to see, touch and purchase trailers right on the lot, so having stock on the ground is a top priority for Great Dane,” Monroe said.
