Medium Duty Trucks – Box Trucks, Dry Vans, and Reefer Trucks

medium-duty-trucksTruck classifications are typically based upon the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR). Trucks are classified by the Department of Transportation’s Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), which groups classes 1–3 as light duty, 4–6 as medium duty, and 7–8 as heavy duty.

Medium Duty Trucks

 Medium duty trucks are defined as weighing between 14001–26000 pounds. There are 3 classes of medium duty truck.

  • Class 4 trucks have gross vehicle weight rating ranges from 14001–16000 lbs.
  • Class 5 trucks have gross vehicle weight rating ranges from 16001–19500 lbs.
  • Class 6 trucks have gross vehicle weight rating ranges from 19501–26000 lbs.

Some trucks listed as medium duty also are known as:

  • Box Trucks
  • Dry Vans
  • Refrigeration Trucks

A Box Truck is a truck with a box-shaped cargo area. The medium duty box truck usually ranges in size from 14 to 26 feet in length. They typically have a rolls-up door in the rear for loading cargo and on some box trucks, the cargo area is accessible from the cab through a small door.

A Dry Van is a type of Box truck. The Dry Van is the most common type of freight transportation in the US. Dry Vans, or enclosed box trucks, look like box on wheels with doors in the back. They have no temperature control and are designed to carry pallets or boxes of cargo, furniture, and any type of equipment. Dry vans are versatile and are typically used for moving non-perishable foods and beverages, textile and clothing items, plastic and building products. Dry Van cargo is protected from bad weather, theft, and most damage when secured properly.

A Refrigeration Truck (or Reefer Truck) is another example of a Box Truck. While a Dry Van is generally used by companies that need to haul appliances, furniture, and equipment, a Reefer Truck carries perishable goods like fresh or frozen produce.

All of these medium duty trucks can be found at your local full-service truck dealership, C&M Motors, NationaLease of San Diego.
