Box Trailers

Box Trailer: A trailer with solid walls to provide maximum cargo protection.

What is a box trailer?  

A box trailer, box van trailer or van trailer has solid walls and lockable swing-back rear doors. These offer high levels of security. It is one of the most popular trailer types in the road haulage industry. 

Thanks to their securable cargo hold, the world’s largest retailers use box trailers. Most non-perishable food products, clothing and household goods make their way to the shelves in the back of a box van trailer.    

Why a box trailer? 

A box trailer is the best choice for transporting high-value goods or cargo that require protection from the elements. Here, aluminium, steel walls or a combination of both, cover sturdy box section frames. This structure results in a lightweight container that is rigid and stable.   

Unloading is fast and easy. Box van trailers’ fold-flat doors and vertical doorframes enable rear forklift access for palletised goods. These features also allow close access to loading bays for pump truck off-loading. 

TIP’s impressive fleet of box trailers also includes a range of trailers with aerodynamic designs. These box van trailers offer increased stability, fuel savings and running costs. TIP also offers several special options. Configurations include box vans with city dimensions, single-deck trailers and double-deck trailers, ready-made trailers, ferry specification trailers and more.
