The Four Best Flatbed Supply Companies in The Midwest
Because of the higher risk factor and specialized expertise that comes with the job, flatbed truckers tend to get paid higher than other truckers. In 2020, flatbedders averaged an annual income of $13K more than dry van truckers, and about 8 cents more per mile. With extra pay comes extra challenges of course, and these challenges include getting the right supplies for whatever load you’re about to carry - but if you’ve got the vigilance and the special skill to do it, especially during heavy traffic, then you know how fun this job can be. One of the most popular regions to jump into the business is the midwest, which is exactly why we chose the four best flatbed suppliers from that area.
