Commercial trucks come in all forms of types and sizes, and can weigh up to 80,000 pounds or may weigh 33,000 pounds or less. A commercial truck is a type of vehicle often used to transport products. Delivery vans, flatbeds, parcel trucks, and cube vans are just some examples of more common commercial trucks.
