Sprinter Vans

When speed counts but you don’t want to break the cost barrier, cargo sprinter vans are an excellent option for your expedited freight. HotShotTrucking.com’s skilled expeditors will help evaluate whether a sprinter van is the right option for your shipping needs.

Whether by air or ground transportation – or both, HotShotTrucking.com does it all in support of your business needs.

From domestic shipments to transnational freight, large or small, we will provide you with prompt delivery and superior customer service. To ensure maximum efficiency and intelligence, we also provide tracking services to ensure you’re never in the dark regarding the location and ETA of your shipment.


They can even be fitted with refrigerators and freezers to haul temperature-sensitive freight, or left completely empty for maximum volume. Sprinter vans typically range from 8 to 15 feet long, are 52 inches wide, have a 70 inch internal height – and are below loading dock level (more on that later). As a premier third-party logistics provider (3PL), the experienced expeditors at HotShotTrucking.com know exactly when an expedited Sprinter van is the best option for your next time-sensitive shipment. Here are several reasons why your next shipment might end up on a cargo Sprinter van.



Cargo Sprinter vans are faster than semi-trailers and box trucks, especially on shorter distance trips, or between 850 to 1200 miles, but they can also be used for cross-country shipping. Cargo Sprinter vans are easier to maneuver than bigger vehicles in high traffic areas and dense urban settings. They are also easy to use for handling those last-mile logistics to suburban residences or crowded commercial districts. With shorter transit times and exclusive use for your shipment, you do not have to wait for other cargo to be delivered to other clients, or worry about your shipment sitting at a freight terminal like with a standard less-than-truckload or truckload option. This speed and easy maneuverability in tight spaces means your freight gets there faster. With today’s supply chains strained to the breaking point, speed means getting your time-sensitive parts and equipment faster and your people and production lines back to work.



Cargo Sprinter vans are very popular for hauling time-sensitive shipments and for good reason. With so much space available on a relatively small frame – when compared to box trucks and semi-trailers, a cargo Sprinter van can carry a significant amount of freight. A Sprinter van load can be anywhere from one to four standard freight pallets due to their interior width, and with weights up to 3500 pounds. Their internal volume is also especially efficient for unpalletized or loose freight, so this permits loading to the vehicle’s ceiling if necessary. If it fits, it ships. The interior height of a cargo Sprinter van (68 to 79 inches depending on model) enables easy loading or unloading both by hand or forklift, but as previously noted, their cargo decks are not shipping dock height. However, these vans can also be unloaded from both the rear or side, which also increases their flexibility. The experienced expeditors at HotShotTrucking.com take all of these variables into consideration when deciding if a cargo Sprinter van is the best shipping option for your freight at both the point of origin and final destination.


Spend (less)

Using a cargo Sprinter van for time-sensitive shipments is a more cost-effective way of shipping by ground, and is usually less expensive than by box trucks, semi-trailers, or air freight – with almost 66 percent lower costs. That’s real savings to your bottom line. Sprinter vans cost less to operate per mile – especially on fuel - than standard dock-high straight trucks, and are competitive against air freight over shorter distances at only a fraction of the cost on loads weighing between 500 to 3500 pounds.

Nationwide Availability

Due to their popularity, cargo Sprinter vans are readily available across North America. With relatively easy maintenance requirements and robust construction, Sprinter vans have a high operational up-time – meaning you do not have to worry about as many potential mechanical issues with this class of vehicle that could delay your shipment. Cargo Sprinter van fleets have continued to increase due to high demand, which means more customized freight options are available across the board. Since Sprinter vans are also easier to drive and have no special licensing requirements, the pool of available drivers for intracity deliveries and cross-country trips is significantly greater than that for box trucks or semi-trailers.
