With recent cannabis legalization, new commercial fleets are springing up to transport pounds of marijuana and hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash. Navigating wildfire growth, ever-changing regulations, and federal illegality, it’s a fast learning curve for these new cannabis entrepreneurs — the legal ones, anyway.
Dominick Vitelli's company, Quality Coachworks, worked with the state for two years on bringing those plans from paper into a cannabis transport vehicle.
With 12 variations of van conversions containing more than 50 modifications, the “Cannavans” come with touchpad climate controls, insulated floors and walls, reinforced doors and roofs, welded side doors, and door hinge covers — an extra protection against break-ins.
The van bodies are built with programmable digital lockboxes that can be loaded with orders based on delivery stops. To mitigate liability, the lockboxes can be configured to only release the combinations upon arrival.
