      A system devised by expediting companies.
      Definition can vary from company to company.
      Basically
      B- Van or Sprinter
      C small straight- typically 6 pallets /5000 lbs
      D larger straight- can vary but 10 pallets/12-15,000 lbs minimum
      E - semi tractor

      Truck classes, an industry standard is class 4 thru class 8
      Class 7 is your medium duties, M2's etc.
      Class 8 is your heavier trucks. Semi's are class 8.
      There are heavy straights built on Class 8 chassis.
