What Cargo Can be Transported in a Box Truck


On this site with box truck dispatch services, we can find the definition of a box truck. It has a cargo compartment, which is separated from the cab with the driver. Various types of cargo can be transported in this compartment. This type can be equipped with an extra place to sleep if the car is declared to be hotspot transportation.

Among the main characteristics of box trucks are their size and load capacity. Sizes range from 12,500 to 33,000 pounds. This difference is due to the purposes of vehicles and the requirements that are presented to them.

Types of Transported Cargo

  • Local cargo transportation

To move a box truck in the conditions of one city or district, a small cargo compartment is required. Such a truck should be maneuverable and have a cheap fuel consumption.

Usually, such trucks are small — 100-200 cubic feet of space itself and 3000-4000 pounds of load capacity.

Who uses small box trucks?

  • flower delivery;
  • cakes delivery;
  • groceries, fresh vegetables, and fruits stores;
  • transportation of parcels.
  • Furniture transportation

Box trucks are most often used when moving — people change their homes, the company changes the office, etc. The cargo compartment is wide and high, which means that furniture and boxes can easily fit there.

  • Package delivery

People are increasingly ordering online and choosing delivery by courier or to the nearest post office. This means that maneuverable box trucks are great for transporting parcels from the warehouse to the recipient.

  • Transportation from warehouses

Renting a warehouse isn’t enough. Things from it must be brought to a certain place or vice versa. Box trucks are also used here, on which it is easy to load goods and send them to the right place. These can be products, clothing, furniture, plumbing, household goods, etc.

As you can see, truckers carry completely different loads. Some of them need very careful driving, some need to be driven hastily. You can work both with the transportation of only one cargo type and with many listed here.
