What is Dry Freight Trucking ?

Where both FTL (full truck load) and LTL (less than truckload) trucking refer to the amount of product that needs to be transported, dry van trucking specifically refers to the type of freight being shipped. Simply put, it is freight that cannot get wet and is non-perishable.


48’ and 53’ trailers are the most common dimensions used for this type of shipping.

Load types

Freight examples include: non-perishable foods, beverages and consumables, building materials, clothing, and various retail goods.
