caja metálica, contenedor


Explanation:
Según la frase que escribiste, la traducción es simplemente caja metálica o contenedor.

Sin embargo, van es una furgoneta o camioneta. Es decir un vehículo utilitario de tamaño mediano para transporte de elementos, materiales, etc.

Espero te ayude! :-)

Caja metálica


Explanation:
I would suggest you to translate van as Caja metálica in this context.

The normal meaning of van is "furgoneta" or "camioneta". (A vehicle of transport). But this is not what your text is talking about.

Good luck
