A Chip Van, also known as a chip trailer and bulk van, are an aluminum walled trailer designed to haul wood chips or biomass when coupled to a semi-truck. The trailer is either end loaded or top loaded. Made from lightweight aluminum to increase payload, and larger volume capacity, chip vans are typically used for infield chipping or transport.
Chip vans are available with a variety of features, multiple lengths, and axle configurations. It is common to include live floors that move material toward the tailgate.
