Straight Truck

Straight Truck

A Straight Truck, also knows as a box truck, cube truck or box van, is used for transporting cargo in tighter and less accommodating areas. Unlike tractor-trailers, straight trucks do not have a separate cab and trailer. Instead they have a single, integrated body that combines the cab and the cargo compartment.
