Dry Van

Choosing the right type of equipment for your load is important, and at Maridum, we have several different options available. One of our most popular options is dry van shipping. Dry van shipping is the most common type of truck that you see on the highway. It is essentially a large trailer that is connected to a truck. They are designed to haul pallets, boxes, and many other different types of materials.

One of the things to consider when choosing a dry van truck is that they do not have temperature control or other means to control the environment of the cargo. This is not a good choice for items such as food and beverages, cleaning supplies that need to be kept within a certain temperature range, or items that cannot withstand high heat. They are an excellent choice for things such as consumer goods that include clothing, machinery, packaged foods that do not need to be kept at a certain temperature, and some electronic equipment.

The area inside of a dry van is large, but because it is an enclosed area, there are limits. It is a versatile choice, and they do a good job of protecting the cargo from weather conditions such as rain, wind, or snow. They are also lockable to prevent theft. You can choose them for full truckloads or less-than-truckload (LTL) shipments. Sometimes you can receive special rates if it is possible to combine LTL loads through freight consolidation.

Dry van trailers come in many different sizes. The most common dimensions are 48-foot and 53-foot long trailers. Most of them are a maximum of 8.5-feet wide, 110 inches high, and can carry a maximum of 45,000 pounds. If you have a smaller load, you can sometimes find 28-foot trailers that are a little bit shorter in height and can carry a maximum of 22,500 pounds. Sometimes, these can be hooked together in chains of two or three trailers at once. These are an excellent choice for short-range or smaller cargo loads.

Loading and unloading a dry van is easy because most of them can easily accommodate a standard forklift or pallet jack. In some locations, you can hook up a conveyor belt, or load and unload the truck manually. They keep the material and products organized, making loading and unloading quick and easy. You can also have the trailer picked up and dropped off after loading and unloading is complete.

Dry can shipping is an excellent choice as long as the materials do not have to be kept within a certain temperature range. They keep the load dry and work for many transportation needs in a wide range of industries, which is one reason they are the most common type of service available. As long as this is a suitable choice of transportation for your load, it is easy to find a truck available when you need it.
