    i keep hearing about "letter" classifications like "c","d","e" about these vans and trucks.

    just what are they?

    Most expedite carriers use the following descripters:

    A = Pickup truck or mini van capable of 500 pounds
    B= Cargo Van/Sprinter capable of 2500 Pounds
    C = Small dock high Straight truck capable of 5000 pounds
    D = Large straight truck capable of 13,000 pounds
    E = Tractor/trailer
    An R suffix = reefer; CR, DR, ER would be refrigerated trucks
    A C suffix would be a Canadian truck leased to a USA carrier
