Box Body

What is a Box Body?

A box body is a special body with solid walls in the form of a closed box on a vehicle. The box body is usually firmly attached to the chassis. However, there are also box bodies that are removable. The removable body is known as a swap body.

There are different types of box bodies depending on the type of use. The box can be made of simple plywood walls, aluminium or plastic. The box bodies are suitable for many different applications. For example, as insulated thermo cases for temperature-controlled transports or as clothing cases in textile logistics. In trucks, the body is spatially separated from the driver's cab. However, smaller vans with the box body also have variants with access to the driver's cab, for example delivery vehicles of parcel services.
