Restrictions and Factors That Influence Freight Rates

When providing a quote for any oversize shipment, we consider certain essentials that allow us to give you a fair idea of our costs. Our professionals factor in restrictions that are likely to influence our freight rates such as:

  • Federal restrictions: While all states have certain regulations and restrictions for oversize loads, trucks that cross state lines are levied with federal restrictions too. For example, the vehicles are not to weigh more than 80,000 pounds (gross vehicle weight) while each axle should carry no more than 34,000 pounds per tandem axle. Vehicles with one axle are required to weigh below 20,000 pounds.
  • Permits: All states are required to issue a permit to trucks carrying oversize as well as overweight loads. If your vehicle crosses more than one state in its route, you are required to obtain permits from each state.
  • Exceptions: All states pose restrictions for size and weight however, exceptions do exist. These exceptions generally include a fee and are granted to loads that cannot be divided in terms of dimensions and weight. If the equipment can be separated without damaging or affecting its purposes, these exceptions are not granted.

How are our freight rates determined? Depending on a number of factors mentioned above, the freight rates for our oversize load transportation services may vary/

Here are some things that are important to consider:

  • Loads bigger than federal standards generally cost more for transportation.
  • Actual freight rates are determined by considering the final height, weight and the number of states it is transported through.
  • Our freight rates costs also include the number of counties in each state as local taxes as well as administrative fees are applicable on all oversize loads.
