Trucking vehicles range from mini to very heavy trucks, each with a specific purpose. Mini trucks transport light loads locally, while light trucks transport everyday items. Medium trucks are used commercially, and heavy trucks carry materials like concrete and refrigerated items. Very heavy trucks are reserved for goods that other trucks cannot carry.

There are different types of trucking vehicles ranging from mini trucks to very heavy trucks. Each type of truck has a specific purpose in the trucking industry. While mini trucks can be great for taking short trips, heavy trucks are often used to haul large loads.
There are only a few types of trucks that can be classified as “mini” trucks. These vehicles include the Japanese “kei” truck and the “pup” truck. Most of these trucks are used to transport light loads from one local point to another local point. On occasion, mini trucks can be used to transport light loads long distances, although this largely depends on the type of cargo loaded on a mini truck.

Light trucks can include sport utility vehicles (SUVs), pickup trucks, minivans, and tow trucks. In most cases, light trucks are only used to transport everyday items from one point to another. Sofas, televisions and firewood can be transported with the help of a light truck. Tow trucks are often used to tow other vehicles from one destination to another, and tow trucks can sometimes be used to haul larger items such as trailers filled with scrap metal or other cargo.

Trucks classified as medium trucks are often used commercially. Medium trucking vehicles can include flatbed trucks, fire trucks, box trucks, and platform trucks. Each of these vehicles has a specific purpose ranging from carrying a load of metal pipes to hauling large containers of water. Flatbed trucks don’t have roofs, so any cargo placed on this type of truck must not be susceptible to any natural elements.

Heavy trucks can carry many different types of materials ranging from concrete to refrigerated items. This category of road transport includes refrigerated trucks, dump trucks, log carriers and tankers. Since many heavy goods have to be transported using a vehicle that can carry a lot of weight, heavy trucks are often in demand in the transportation industry.

Finally, very heavy trucks include vehicles such as heavy trucks and ballast tractors. These vehicles are reserved for goods that a light, medium or very heavy truck cannot carry. Within the trucking industry, different trucks have different names and these names are not always interchangeable from one country to another. However, the size of a truck determines the type of cargo that can be placed on a specific vehicle. Without the various types of trucks mentioned in this article, it would be difficult to find the right truck for a particular need.
