Available Dry Van Trailer Types

On the COOP platform, common variations of Dry Van Trailers listed for rent in Boston, MA include:

General Dry Van Trailer

A general dry van trailer references the term that many in the trucking industry use to refer to the common variation of dry trailers. A dry van trailer is enclosed, typically with an aluminum roof and sides, and generally has either wooden flooring or aluminum flooring that is made to be water-resistant, and has the capacity to load 20,000 lbs. or more in freight, depending on the length of the dry van trailer.

Pup Trailers

A pup trailer is a general dry trailer that comes in a smaller size. The 20 ft., 24 ft., 28 ft. variations are all considered to be “pup trailers”, and these trailers are great for additional space when compared to a box / straight truck that might not be as large, but they’re also not so large that they take as much room and skill to maneuver as a 45 ft. and longer dry trailer may require.

Drop-Frame Van Trailer

A drop-frame trailer could be either a regular dry van trailer, or a pup trailer, but what defines this type of trailer is having two levels for its cargo deck. Typically, the higher level for the deck is the standard size that is the height needed to attach to the tractor truck that is pulling it. Then the next level “drops” down to allow for taller cargo that wouldn’t be able to fit into a standard enclosed trailer to fit into the drop-frame trailer.
