Interior Dimensions of 53ft Semi-Trailer

It is necessary to know the dimensions of a semi-trailer. The dimensions here refer to not only the external dimensions but also the internal dimensions. The external dimensions help us to avoid breaking local laws and the internal dimensions tell us the maximum size of cargo it can carry. This also helps to manage the cost of transportation.

Dry Van Trailer

53 feet is the standard size of a dry van. It is completely enclosed, and while it protects the cargo from outside interference, it also limits the size of the cargo. Therefore, cargoes transported using dry vans are usually palletized, more regular cargoes.

Reefer Trailers

Reefer trailers are ideal for transporting goods at a constant temperature. It not only protects cargo from deterioration due to high temperatures but also from freezing due to low temperatures. If the temperature control is turned off, you can also use it as a regular dry van for cargo transportation (but this is not recommended).

It is important to note that when transporting cargo, refrigerated trailers are more careful than dry vans. This is because the reefer has metal or fiberglass walls, ceiling and floor. This is to enhance insulation. And the presence of these things also makes its interior space compressed and able to transport less cargo than a dry van.
