We Can Accommodate a Range of Dry Van Trailers for You

Dry vans work exceptionally well for transporting packaged consumer goods, electronics, furniture, parts, and machinery. They're designed to transport loose, boxed, or palletized freight. While they're not temperature-controlled, they do protect shipments from the outside elements and can be locked, reducing theft.

Cowtown Express's dry vans are regularly serviced and undergo stringent inspections to ensure they follow road safety standards. Our premium fleet has various dry van trailer dimensions, including 53' Air Ride Trailers, 28' Dry Van Trailers, and Straight Trucks. All are capable of accommodating different types of goods, but their sizes differ.

53' Air Ride Trailers

These trailers' air suspension provides a smoother ride. Both our standard and roll bed options transport up to 45,000 pounds, and their dimensions are 53' x 8' 6” x 8' 6” (length, width, height).

28' Dry Van Trailers

Measuring 28' x 8' x 9' (length, width, height), these trailers can carry 22,500 pounds and 14 standard pallet positions. They're ideal for transporting smaller cargo van loads.

Straight Trucks

Straight trucks, also called box trucks, often have a liftgate and are frequently used for city deliveries. Although box truck options are available in different sizes, the most common is 24' x 8' x 8'6” (length, width, height).

How much maximum weight can we put on a 53 feet cargo van?

A standard dry van's maximum weight capacity is 44,000 - 45,000 pounds. If your palettes are standard-sized (48’ x 40’ x 48), you can fit 26 non-stackable or 52 stackable. Unlike other vans, a dry van cannot accommodate oversized freight as it's enclosed.

In which states are we allowed to pool double 53 trailers?

Double trailers, each 40 to 53 feet long, are legal in Arizona, Colorado, Kansas, Idaho, Montana, Dakota, Nevada, Oregon, South Dakota, and Utah. They're also legal in Indiana, Florida, Massachusetts, Ohio, and New York, but only on toll roads.

Can you accommodate the dry van deliveries to multiple consignees on the lane?

Yes, our multi-stop option allows for multiple deliveries. The more stops included, the longer the hauling time. Even though we always strive to deliver freight as fast as possible, multi-stops do slow the process ever so slightly. This is important to keep in mind when dealing with urgent deadlines.

How much does dry van transportation cost?

The cost of dry van transportation depends on the size of the consignment, i.e., how many vans you need and the distance traveled. It’s best to contact us with your requirements so that we can provide you with an accurate quote.
