Double Bottoms

Double Bottoms are motor carrier operations that involve one tractor pulling two trailers. This type of operation is typically used when transporting large loads or when shipping goods over long distances. Double bottoms can also be used to transport smaller loads, but they are not as common in this application.

The advantage of this type of operation is that:

  • It allows for a more efficient use of space and resources.
  • The tractor is able to pull two trailers instead of one, which means that there is less wear and tear on the vehicle. This can be especially important when transporting heavy or fragile loads.
  • It allows for a more even distribution of weight, which can help to minimize damage to the cargo.

There are a few things to keep in mind when using a double bottom:

  • the trailers need to be the same size and weight.
  • the truck must be able to handle the additional weight.
  • the driver must be aware of the extra length and turning radius of the truck/trailers.

Despite these considerations, double bottoms are a very efficient way to move goods and are becoming increasingly popular in today’s logistics industry.
