Dry van trucking is the most common form of shipping freight and uses simple enclosed non-climate controlled rectangular trailers. Any type of general cargo that does not require refrigeration is appropriate for this method of transportation. Large amounts of freight can be shipped at once in an organized and convenient manner. Factories, re-sellers, and consumer outlets use dry van trucking frequently because of its commonality and high availability. Industries that commonly use dry van trucking include:
- Food and beverage
- Health and Beauty
The only thing a dry van does not usually carry is liquid. Exceptions are made for liquids that are packaged in containers that are specially made for shipping liquids. Though dry van trucking is widely practiced and viewed as a relatively easy transportation practice, it is still important to ensure that the operator is aware of applicable regulations on the transportation of items that will be consumed. Moreover, there are specifics for how much weight a dry van can handle legally, usually around 45,000 pounds.
