The Maxus Deliver 9 Dropside at a glance

As with many vehicle types, there are few brands within the van industry that seem to be part of the fabric. Ford, Renault and Volkswagen, for example, have all been creating vans for many years and many buyers in the industry have trusted their judgement on the latest trends and technology.

Well, essentially, a dropside van refers to a vehicle which maintains its front cab but loses the rear covered portion. In replacement of this section, there is an open-top pickup-style platform placed upon the chassis of the van to create an all-purpose area for storing and transporting material or waste.

This multi-purpose design is why dropsides are continually popular. Though, why should you consider a dropside and what industries are they best suited for? Keep reading this blog to find out.
