A dry van, also known as a dry van trailer or box trailer, is defined as a semi-truck that remains enclosed, with freight staying protected and dry from the elements. While dry vans are protected against rain and precipitation, they are not temperature controlled (unlike refrigerated refeer trucks) nor are they fit for oversized shipments (like flatbeds).
Ideal for hauling boxed, palletized, or loose freight, dry van trailers are dependable, versatile, and popularly-used vehicles for LTL deliveries, especially. Dry vans can come in a variety of dimensions and sizes, including 53-foot trailers, 28-foot trailers, and box trucks, making the dry van trucking business a popular option for many truckers.
