Dry vans are undoubtedly the most commonly used vehicles with enclosed freight compartments. They are ideal for a wide range of shipping jobs. They’re versatile and are therefore a good choice for many industries. Dry Vans are great for shipping items like clothing, batteries, beverages, building products, chemicals, ink/paint, garden goods, paper, packaging, and seeds. They are also ideal for hauling packaged or dry grade foods. These vans are meant to handle no more than 45,000 lbs. They’re not often used to transport liquids unless the liquids are first packaged in containers specially designed for shipping fluid substances.
