Trailer Re-Decking

Trailer re-decking refers to the process of replacing or refurbishing the deck, or floor, of a trailer. Trailers, such as those used for transporting goods or as part of semi-trucks, have a flatbed or platform known as the deck. Over time, due to wear and tear, exposure to the elements, or damage, the deck may become weakened or deteriorated.

During trailer re-decking, the old or damaged deck is removed, and a new one is installed. This can involve replacing individual boards to create a sturdy and reliable deck.

What is cribbing and dunnage?

Dunnage refers to materials used to stabilize products during transportation. Wood is the most common material used for dunnage. It’s widely available and relatively simple to process into dunnage. Not all wood can be can be used as dunnage. Wood dunnage needs to be durable and free from any major splits or defects. It is our job to provide dunnage that is strong enough to protect products that are transported.

A “box crib” or “cribbing” are blocks used to build temporary structures out of wood to support heavy objects for construction, item relocation, pipe skids, vehicle rehab, and equipment stabilization. Cribbing lumber is often used to secure debris in collapsed buildings or for temporary support in the buildings themselves. 

There are also different types of cribbing wood blocking sizes. Horned cribbing has interlocking ends that stack together, similar to Lincoln logs. Notched ends can work in a similar fashion. Just like shaft sets, the ends can be processed into pegs, posts, fins, dove tails, or even interlocking pieces depending on the requirements and the engineered design.
