A dry van is almost identical to a Box Truck, but should only be assigned to larger models. In the United States, dry van is the most common type of freight transportation. In general terms, a dry van is a box on wheels with doors at the back of it. There are no temperature controls in a dry van, so they are not used to carry cargo that is sensitive to variations in temperature. Typically, these are used to carry pallets or boxes of different cargo or equipment that is not extremely oversized.
Dry vans are extremely versatile and may be used for short or longer distance freight delivery. Thanks to the protective nature of a dry van, it may be used to move building products, textiles, non-perishable foods and beverages, along with other similar items. Since they are locked and protected from the elements, items hauled in dry vans are safe and secure while transporting and storing them.
