These kind of trucks I see quite frequently on/near the Bangalore Airport and the other Airports in India. The Compartment behind the Drivers cabin lifts up to match the door opening of the Aeroplane.

This one is used to service the food supplies .

It is an airline/aircraft catering truck and has a scissor lift mechanism which allows the entire area behind the cabin to be lifted to the aircraft door level, which makes it easy to load the food supplies.

Here is a typical catering truck, and you could relate to those seen in airports.

Airmarrel - Ground Support Equipment

Ashley, what was that loaded in the trailer? Are they truck frame side members?

I think they are referred to as long members and cross members. Looking at them, I think the thickness is slightly low, though that may be due to the pictures.

Also I think long members (or side members as you put it) would be pressed at the plant site itself not requiring to be transported. Unless this truck is used for intra plant transport.

This happens sometimes, take for example a proto vehicle where the section of the long members are different from the production frames, it is wise to outsource to frame pressing instead of rolling them in-house by modifying the rollers, etc etc and in such cases the long members needs transportation.

I am unclear about AMW's Frame side Members. Possible that they can be sourced as their volumes are comparatively low.

@Ashley

I think someone posted pics of 3 Tata Prima 4028S tractors being carried on a trailor by another 4028S. Though that was in another configuration.
