Box trucks and vans are commonly uses vehicles for simply getting cargo from one place to the next either locally or over longer distances. In this category, you’ll find all shapes and sizes of vehicles that are designed for long haul deliveries, local moving needs, and more. The boxes themselves will also show quite a bit of variety both in size and in door configuration. There are trailers with fold-out sides or side doors, and some with barn doors or roll-up doors in the back.
The main difference between box trucks and box vans comes down to the cab as well as the size of box supported. As you’d expect, box trucks can be outfitted with larger storage units and some of them resemble tractors in a sense. Box vans, although smaller, can certainly still get the job done as long as the cargo is the right size. In the end, you just need to decide how the truck or van is going to be used, what maximum capacity is required to get jobs done, and how large the operating area will be for the vehicle.
A few of the most common manufacturers in these categories are DAF, Mercedes-Benz, IVECO, MAN, Scania, and Ford.
