Umthun Specialized Carriers, Inc. provides platform open deck flatbed and step deck trailer services for owner/operators that desire quality customer freight. We believe in paying our driver and broker carrier base above the prevailing market because we want them financially viable.  We want repeat business with quality drivers. We expect to protect our drivers and treat them as independent business operators. Our belief is to treat people right and they will call us back for repeat business.

Umthun Specialized Carriers, Inc. provides customers with owner/operator drivers that are dedicated to their business. Our drivers believe in on time performance to secure repeat customers. We believe in providing our customers fair market prices for exceptional quality of service on every load. Our drivers know they must perform with timely, consistent and safe delivery of our customers' product.

SUMMARY OF PLATFORM SERVICES:

53' low profile step deck trailers.  Our owner/operators use a 53 foot trailer with low profile 36 inch high deck. With 42 foot on bottom deck and 11 foot on the upper deck you get more capacity availability.

You get added value with our standard trailer or extra services with CONESTOGA'S, SIDE KITS, STEP DECKS WITH RAMPS, LOAD LEVELERS, CONTAINER LOCKS AND 8 FOOT TARPS. Trailing equipment types are 48 and 53 foot long flatbeds -or- step decks. Most have 6 foot or 8 foot drop tarps. The CONESTOGA or soft side curtain type trailer is prominent to protect your product from inclement weather as well as reduce the drivers exposure to the physical attributes of tarping services. Some operators with SIDE KIT equipped trailers will have an open top with 4 or 6 foot sides and high bows for crane loading steel and macinery products.
 
RAMPS FOR STEP DECKS provide drivers the ability to load and unload 'wheeled' machinery and equipment and cars at customer sites that may not have access for loading. With a 53 step deck and ramps we can provide service for heavy duty service vehicles already equipped with utility bodies and cranes or hoists.

Partial and LTL service is available to give you competitive pricing on smaller shipments with single handling of equipment on one trailer. No need to run your product through a 'breakbulk' common carrier. The same trailer it is loaded on also delivers direct to your customer. 


Our industrial and building construction customers are providers of machinery for construction, agriculture, maintenance and service. Building materials customers include insulation panels, lumber products, steel sheets and coils, tubular products for piping and industrial applications as well as roofing and wall assembly and construction. Retailer and wholesale customers distribute wheeled equipment such as trailers, service trucks, cranes, forklifts, truck bodies and equipment as well as agriculurtal farm machinery.

From a centrally located office in the Des Moines, Iowa area we can coordinate your services with speed and precision. Our on-time pick up and delivery combined with our drivers' safety records are remarkable and illustrate why Umthun Specialized Carriers is regarded as one of the nation's finest.
