Dry van shipping is any shipping that is done in an unadorned semi-trailer. Dry van shipping is the single most popular form of shipping Full Truckloads (FTL) and Less-than-Full Truckloads (LTL) in the U.S. The name may be misleading, because a dry van isn't really a van at all. Without the need for refrigeration, temperature control or any other specialized service, dry van shipping services are the most economical truckload service.

In the U.S. dry vans can also be referred to as van trailers, box trailers or semi-trailers. They usually run anywhere from 28 feet in length to 53 feet.
