The Demand for Over the Road Expedited Shipping Has Never Been Higher

There are several kinds of trucks we employ to meet your delivery needs. For your smaller deliveries we offer cargo van carriers.

Here are the 2015 models of cargo vans and sprinter vans compared by height and weight capacities:

Cargo Van Dimensions

Chevrolet Express

Interior height: 51.80"
Weight Capacity: 4,145 lbs.

Mercedes-Benz Sprinter

Interior height: 78.2”
Weight Capacity: 5,508 lbs.

Freightliner Sprinter

Interior height: 63.2”
Weight Capacity: 3,213 lbs.

Ford Transit

Interior height: 81.5”
Weight Capacity: 5,550 lbs.

Your best options for just-in-time delivery

Increasingly popular in the US market, the Ford Transit, can be argued as the best choice for small cargo van delivery services. Depending on the type of cargo you want delivered, and the year of the van, the Ford Transit offers models with wheelbase versions: long (130 inch), regular (148 inch), and long-extended (148 inch with a longer body and higher roof). The more cargo you need to transport the more beneficial a long wheelbase version will be to you, since it will be more stable. With the regular wheelbase comes better steering. 

The high roof features an impressive 81.5 inches in height- a roof taller than its main competitor, the Sprinter, and overall best figure in cargo van height. Imagine how many more goods you could fit in this vehicle with this height. There are 3 engines offered for the Ford Transit. For better gas mileage, there is the Ecoboost V6. For an order requiring towing and hauling large loads then the best engine is the 3.2-liter turbodiesel 5-cylinder. Otherwise the 3.7-liter V6 with its 266 horsepower is the engine to use for high performance.

Another oft-represented cargo van is the RAM ProMaster. This cargo van’s standard engine is a 20-hp 3.6-liter V6. Its interior height is 76 inches matching the Sprinter. With a payload capacity of 4,417 lbs. the ProMaster is an excellent choice for expedited freight shipping. The ProMaster successfully delivers your high paying cargo van loads.

Expedited Alternatives for Speedy Deliveries

An alternative to using a traditional cargo van is the Sprinter van. The Sprinter, made by Freightliner, Dodge, and Mercedes-Benz, has been the king of the full-size cargo vans for years. The tallest size roof of a Sprinter is 76.4 inches on the inside allowing for 90 cubic feet of cargo space. Until the Ford Transit, the Sprinter was tallest vehicle interior. The Sprinter has a payload capacity of 3,000 lbs. and a 5,000 lbs. towing capacity so you can carry heavier cargo or simply more of the small goods. Regardless of which van is on top, both the Ford Transit and the Sprinter can be just what you are looking for in transporting your goods.
