Dry Van Trucking Services

Dry van shipping is the best shipping method when shipping cargo that is vulnerable to poor weather conditions. We will ship your freight in sealed, fully enclosed trailers. These trailers are adjusted to moving large volumes of goods, freight, and equipment that do not require temperature control. These trailers are called “dry” because they are protected from the external influence of weather and other conditions. Dry Vans are big, rectangular containers and they are considered the most common type of freight transportation. They’re designed to haul pallets or boxes of cargo, as well as most any other type of equipment.

When to use dry van shipping services?

Chicago Air Freight, Inc will protect your valuable freight through the Dry Van shipping process. A dry van can be used in many different ways due to its flexibility and versatility. You can move anything that fits in the trailer and is non-perishable, including:

  • Food and beverages that is non-perishable
  • Fabrics and clothing
  • Electronics
  • Other retail products
  • Consumer packaged goods
  • Equipment
  • Machinery
  • Furniture
  • Building materials etc.

Please note that these trailers are not suitable for temperature-sensitive goods and cannot handle humidity because of their wooden floors.

In addition to being large and versatile, dry van trucking is often chosen for their convenience – they protect cargo from bad weather, potential damage, and theft. Dry Vans are used for both full-truckload as well as Less than truckload freight shipping (LTL). Full truckloads can be scheduled with custom pick-up and delivery specifications, while LTL shipments can benefit from lower pricing thanks to freight consolidation.

No matter what type of freight you’re shipping, as long as they aren’t required to be kept cold, dry van shipping can work for your transport needs.
