What is a Tilt Chassis?

A tilt chassis is a specialized trailer equipped with a hydraulic tilting mechanism. This allows the entire trailer bed to be safely raised at an angle, effortlessly unloading your container's contents.

Here's why TMX Intermodal Tilt Chassis Service is ideal for you:

What materials can be unloaded with a tilt chassis?

Tilt chassis are ideal for unloading bulk materials that flow freely, such as grain, sand, gravel, wood chips, and pellets.

Are there weight limitations for using a tilt chassis?

Yes, there are weight limitations for both the chassis itself and the container being unloaded. We will work with you to ensure your load falls within the safe operating weight for the specific tilt chassis being used.

What happens if my product doesn't flow freely?

For materials that may not discharge easily due to moisture content or other factors, we recommend discussing your specific needs with us. In some cases, additional equipment or techniques may be required for unloading.

Is a tilt chassis more expensive than a standard drayage service?

There may be an additional cost associated with using a tilt chassis compared to a standard flatbed trailer. However, the time and labor savings from faster unloading can often offset this cost. We will be happy to provide you with a quote that includes the tilt chassis service.

How far in advance should I book a tilt chassis?
