Dry van shipping
Dry van shipping services are the most commonly used type of truckload shipping. It refers to moving freight in sealed, fully enclosed trailers. These trailers are adjusted to moving large volumes of goods, freight, and equipment that do not require temperature control. Dry van trucks are protected from the external influence of weather and other conditions, and that’s why these trailers are called ‘dry.’ Most of the dry van trailers can haul up to 43,000 – 45,000 lbs.
When should you use dry van shipping services?
A dry van is the most popular type of truckload shipping and can be used in many different ways due to its flexibility and versatility. In fact, you can move anything that fits in the trailer and is non-perishable, including:
- Non-perishable food and beverages, fabrics and clothing, electronics, and other retail products
- Consumer packaged goods
- Equipment and machinery
- Building materials
- Furniture, electronics, and other items in the moving process
- Raw materials from the warehouse to the construction site, or vice versa
There are a few important concerns when shipping with dry vans. These trailers are not suitable for temperature-sensitive goods. These trailers are not suitable for temperature-sensitive goods and cannot handle humidity because of their wooden floors.
