    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.
