The Dry Van That Does It All

SCF has been providing high performing equipment to the Australian logistics industry for over 30 years. The Dry Van trailer is a versatile option that provides even greater flexibility for road operators looking for a reliable, affordable and flexible transport option.

The trailer is purpose built for Australian conditions, designed to carry up to 48 pallets with the use of Vertical Load Bars. The two pallet wide units also come with lashing rings to secure cargo, reinforced handling points to reduce damage and F-tracks for freight restraint. 

With SCF's wide range of purpose built containers, you can change trailer type at the drop of a hat. Switch a pallet wide Dry Van for a Refrigerated Container, or a Tautliner, simply by visiting one of SCF's depots across the country.

Not only does it shine on the road, it can be quickly, safely and easily transferred from road to rail without the need to unload cargo. Drop it at the rail yard and send it across the country - easy.
