Is this a test question?

What size semi flat bed are we talking about?
Can we double stack, triple stack, the pallets?
You can load the trailer up to a gross wieght of 80,000 pounds you know.

>Not a test question, just want some info.  Not sure of trailer size (53')?  Yes I want to max the load and get as many on as I can.

Most pallets are 40" x 48".
I guess you could sit four hives per layer on a pallet. Stack them up as high as you'd want to go.

If the trailer is 53' long it should hold thirty pallets. 120 hives per layer.
If the trailer is 48' long it should hold 28 pallets. 112 hives per layer.

Does this help?

 Most Bee clip pallets are 33''by48''    you can get 17 back on one side,so thats 34 pallets per layer x's 4 hives per pallet=136hives.We go 6 high so that makes 816 singles,this is for straight trailers, drop decks can be loaded higher depending on the weight of the bees... make sure your nets are tall enought

To work your math easier, some standard trailer sizes (in inches): 240, 360, 480, 540 and most will be about eight feet (104 inches) wide. Longer than 45 feet usually run one eight foot trailer and another eight foot dolly at the back of whatever extremely long (pipes, bridge sections, etc.) object you're carrying.
