Fact Why We use Dry van
Dry van trailers, or box trailers, can be described as a rectangular box on wheels with doors. They are designed to transport equipment and boxes or pallets of cargo. There is no temperature control in regular dry van trailers, so they are designed for any shipment except oversize freight or perishable, temperature-sensitive goods.
Traditional semi-trailers or “dry vans” look like enclosed boxes and are made to move dry goods that do not require strict temperature control. Typically, dry van trailers can be used for almost all types of freight. These are the most readily available type of trailers and are commonly used for transporting food, textiles, clothing items, plastics, and more. Because a typical dry van can haul up to 45,000 pounds of cargo, they remain the most popular and versatile method of transporting large amounts of goods. Those whose cargo is being transported can also rest at ease because the freight is secure and protected from weather, theft, and damage.
What Industries Use Dry Van Shipping and Why?
Many industries use dry van trucking, and for a variety of reasons. First, because so many products are shipped via dry van—electronics, some foods, cleaning products, automotive equipment, and so much more. Another reason dry van shipping is so frequently chosen is because it’s very easy to find dry van shipping companies that have availability to ship freight. Many shipping companies and 3PL (third-party logistics) providers focus on dry van shipping because it’s a lucrative service to offer, which means you won’t have much difficulty finding a carrier that can handle your shipment.
