A box rigid is a truck with a closed bodywork on a chassis. The box truck is used for all kinds of freight.
The load volume of a box truck is given in cubic metres and the total authorized weight is given in tonnes. These two elements help determine the capacity of the box for road freight transport.
A box truck can be equipped for a specific use : with straps and ties for moving (moving box truck), with specific equipments for clothes transport (clothes transport box rigid) or for beverage transport (beverage delivery box rigid). The available tailgate on certain models help load and unload the truck.
The box of a box truck usually opens from the back but some box trucks are equipped with a rigid wall that can fold to load and unload freight on the side of the truck. A box truck can be covered in plywood on the inside to reinforce the insulation : there are plywood plates fixed on stowing bars to maintain the freight. There are double decker box trucks but most only have one floor.
