Welcome to Tandem Specialized, Inc.

A Tandem “Family” of Companies

Tandem is an asset-based flatbed carrier, with headquarters in Northern Michigan.


Specialized means...

A team you can count on every day. We use new and top of the line equipment to make every move safe and efficient. Our drivers and logistics coordinators work on each and every load constantly, to make sure that freight is moved for our customers within their timeline, to meet production and market demands. Utilizing flatbed trailers (2-axle and up to 8-axle configurations), we offer a wide range of price and service options to our customers. We have flatbed trailers that provide 48' - 56' of deck space, payload capacities of up to 112,000 lb, and everything in between. Our primary service area is the eastern 1/2 of the U.S., with our heavy-haul trailers focusing on services in Michigan, as well as Northern IN and Northern OH with heavy weight permits.

Tandem has over 70 years of servicing the transportation industry, and that experience has made the Tandem Team one of the most recognizable flatbed operations in the state of Michigan. With offices currently located in Gaylord and St. Louis Michigan, we are building a new facility in Grayling Michigan to better serve our customers and community.
