Day Cab

Logistics Term

What’s Day Cab?

A day cab is a heavy-duty truck without a sleeper cabin. They’re cost-efficient and used to move loads over short distances and frequent trips. In addition, they’re fuel-efficient because of their size, which also makes them ideal for maneuvering through traffic. Day cabs can either be single or double axle. The double-axle model costs more and can transport more cargo than the single-axle. The size of day cabs varies, but the cab's size is about 20ft in length.

Day Cab - In The Field

Day cabs don’t have sleeping quarters but have back windows, making backing up and hooking the rig to a trailer simple. In addition, day cabs make it easy to transport heavy loads from one location to another. Finally, since day cabs are used for shipping goods over short distances, the delivery is done on the same day. That’s advantageous to the client, especially if they are under time constraints.
