Cargo vans are among the most popular commercial vehicles on the road. They are popular because they are inexpensive, have a lot of empty space inside out of the weather, they are low to the ground so they are easy to get in and out of, and they can be outfitted with a wide variety of bins, shelves, drawers, bulkhead, sliders, and such to get the work done more efficiently.
The cargo van is light duty, and comes in a mini size like the Transit Connect, or the full size Econoline which is available in a 1/2-ton, 3/4-ton and 1-ton capacity as well as varied lengths to give maximum flexibility. The drawback to the cargo van is that all of your gear, tools, cargo is inside the van with you. As a result, they have a tendency to be a little noisier inside and any odors from the cargo will be with you as well. However, all in all, the cargo van is a very effective commercial use vehicle and because of that and its typically lower cost, the cargo van is easily one of the strongest sellers year in and year out.
