    Is a Benne Truck a Flatbed Truck?

    Hello folks, I recently received a file from a European colleague and was wondering what on earth a Benne truck was.

    Is it a European term for a flatbed Truck, a dump truck, a pick-up truck, or something else? Or nothing at all?

    Thanks... K

    Do you think "Benne" might be a brand name, like "Mack truck" or "Harley-Davidson motorcycle"?

    This site offers to rent Benne dump trucks and Benne flatbed dump trucks, but I couldn't make out why they were specifically "Benne" trucks.

    Hmm. I think it's a dump truck. I know benne is a "bin" or container in French, but I was wondering if any English speakers used it in some dialectal locale. Thanks!
