[Video] How Many Pallets Can You Fit In a Dry Van Trailer?

As you know, sticking to your transportation timelines and covering your customer commitments takes efficiency.

That said, the transportation industry — an industry where costs fluctuate frequently and delays can be difficult to avoid — rarely makes this easy on shippers.

In the pursuit of optimization and improvement, many companies, like yours, look toward expediting their load processes by staging products for transit and hiring additional workers.

Without understanding the dimensional capabilities of the trailers they utilize, however, many businesses overextend their budgets — throwing additional dollars at a process that could be accomplished with less.

For this reason, it's crucial that you understand these intricacies — particularly as they relate to dry van freight shipping.

In this video, Emily, one of our seasoned transportation professionals will explain how many pallets (skids) you should expect to fit onto a 53-foot trailer.
