FreightWaves Ratings cuts through the noise of freight technology product reviews to make you a smarter buyer

Conestoga trailer

A flatbed with a collapsible, accordian-style tarp that can easily be pulled over or off of freight. It allows for easy loading and unloading (from the side or above, for instance) that isn't possible with a dry van, but provides the protection and security of a dry van when the tarp is extended to cover the load during transit.
