Types of Commercial Trucks
These trucks vary greatly in size, shape and weight, based on the type of cargo they’re transporting. Some common types of commercial trucks that could be involved in a truck accident include:
- Dump Trucks
- Garbage Trucks
- Construction Trucks
- Coal Trucks
- 18 Wheelers
- Cement Trucks
- Armored Vehicles
- Flat-Bed Trucks
- Fire Trucks
- Mail Delivery Trucks
- Refrigerated Cargo Trucks
While many of these large trucks require a commercial license to operate, others do not. Therefore, it’s recommended that these truck drivers receive significant training on how to operate these large vehicles to avoid accidents.
