What Are Van Trailers
Dry van trailers are enclosed environments that keep your freight protected from the elements, but they are not temperature controlled. These kinds of trailers are loaded from the back using a loading dock, a forklift, or manpower. These are some of the most common vehicles in the transportation industry because they can accommodate a wide range of items and haul large amounts of wastes at a time, but they cannot carry oversized shipments the way that flatbed trailers can. Van trailers are usually 53 feet long and can carry up to 45,000 pounds of freight.
Kinds of Trailers
Van trailers are divided by size. The 53-foot ones are the most common and they can accommodate “26 standard pallet positions across their floor space.” 28-foot ones are the next most popular ones, and they are often used for moving less than load (LTL) cargo. They can only handle 22,500 pounds and 14 pallet positions. Straight trucks or box trucks are a subcategory of van trailers, but they are more often used for urban deliveries than long-haul movement of hazardous or nonhazardous waste.
