A box truck is available with a tail lift or (side) doors. For distribution or delivery, a tail lift is the most popular option. This allows the deliverers to easily load and unload their goods or packages in the box truck. The weight that can be lifted depends on the tailgate, the most common weights are: 1,500 kilos, 2,000 kilos, 2,500 kilos and 3,000 kilos. Some tail lifts are equipped with roll-off protection. For example, containers can't roll off the tailgate. Well-known brands of tail lifts are, for example, DHollandia and Pallfinger.
Box trucks are available in different sizes and weights. This means that you are not allowed to drive just any box truck. You need a different driver's license for heavier box trucks than for the lighter ones. See here an explanation of all the options within this category.
Box truck driver's license C1 With a C1 driving license you can drive box trucks with a weight between 3.5t and 7.5t. If these box trucks are driven professionally, you are obliged to apply for code 95. These box trucks are also called medium-duty box trucks.
For box trucks between 3.5t and 50t in weight you need a driving license C. This does not only apply to a box truck, but to all vehicles with this weight. These box trucks are also called a small truck.
Box trucks with a weight of less than 3.5 t no longer fall under the truck category. These light box trucks then fall under the category of commercial vehicles. You do not need a special driver's license for these (closed) box vans. The general driving license (B) is then sufficient.
