As New York trucking pros, we respect the importance of special delivery options. Obviously, there’s no “one-truck-fits-all” solution. When you’re shipping cargo to a NYC union job site, you should know the right truck for your needs. The wrong method could lead to inconvenient complications; and they can damage your freight.
At Iron Horse Transport, we take no shortcuts. We insist on providing the best truck for each job. Before dispatching drivers, we determine which truck is best for the project. Like carpenters, truckers need the best possible tool for the job. As union teamsters, we find the solution that’s most convenient and prevents disruption. Iron Horse has a diverse fleet with several special trucks for fast, stress-free delivery.
Fully Enclosed to Keep Your Freight Safe!
Unlike flatbed trucks, dry van trucks are the best option for transporting fragile merchandise. Furthermore, the sealed container protects freight from the elements. Essentially, this ensures that we keep your freight safe.
What is a Dry Van Truck?
Dry van trucking is the standard long-distance trucking method. As a premium New York company, we understand the importance of safety when it comes to freight.
Freight like steel beams can withstand exposure to the elements. However, lumber and other palletized materials on a flatbed truck needs protection from the outdoors. Naturally, dry vans will keep your freight safe from rain, wind, moisture, heat, and other conditions. We offer dry vans that are 28, 48, and 53 feet long. After docking, a forklift easily removes this freight. Additionally, expert operators can drive into the dry van for removal.
The fully enclosed and protected environment makes dry van shipping ideal for transporting goods. Basically, this means flooring, office furniture, rugs, electrical equipment, and other weather-sensitive materials. Usually, these materials are transported to the site after initial construction is finished.
Additionally, dry vans are ideal for transporting palletized materials that can’t be exposed to the elements on flatbed trailers. And, our forklift trucks can load and unload these materials with ease.

Air Ride Suspension
Air ride suspension is the new safety standard in the trucking industry. This prevents impact to the truck and the freight itself.
While air ride suspension commonly prevents trucks from damaging calibrated electronics or construction equipment, it will protect all freight.
Lift Gate Delivery Service
Lift gates are a sought-after feature for trucks.
A lift gate is needed when a driver makes a curbside delivery. Lift gates operate by bringing heavy machinery, appliances, or other objects to the ground using an electronically controlled platform.
