What does dry van transportation mean in trucking?

Companies request dry van transportation services to transport different freight types from point A to the end destination. These services are most suitable for cargo that does not require temperature-controlled vehicles during transit. The load is travelling in a fully sealed and enclosed vehicle, looking “like a box”, with a loading and unloading door on the back of the truck.

Companies can book two methods for dry van transportation services:

  • Less than Truckload services (LTL) – Shared truckload services are suitable for freight that is not enough to fill a whole truck, but only a portion of it. The exporter can send them either as stacked palletised cargo or non-stacked goods on a pallet. The vehicle makes a couple of stops during transit, making it a bit slower method of delivery.
  • Full Truckload services (FTL) – In this case, the exporter is booking the dry van transportation services for goods that are enough to fill a whole truck’s capacity. The goods are transported directly to the chosen destination.
