A van is a type of vehicle used for transporting goods or people. It typically has a large, boxy body and is designed for maximum interior space. Vans can be classified as passenger or cargo vans depending on their intended use. Passenger vans are designed to transport people, while cargo vans are designed to carry goods. They are commonly used by businesses for delivery and transportation, as well as by families for large group trips or moving belongings. Vans often have sliding doors on the sides or rear for easy loading and unloading of cargo or passengers.
