Transport of Dry Goods
As the most common form of transportation, dry vans are used to deliver all forms of general freight requiring protection from the elements, including automotive parts, furniture, building and construction supplies, paper products, plastics, dry, canned and non-perishable foods, packaging material and the like.
Dry Vans are ideal for solid, non-perishable items that don’t require refrigeration. They can be loaded onto short 20-feet long trailers or larger 53-feet trailers.
For larger and heavier loads, we are equipped with wide vans, high cube vans and multi-axle vans. Vented vans are also available, in case your goods require ventilation.
