    Hello all,

    Be aware of EXTRA fees carriers can charge you based on circumstances.

    Arm yourself (no pun intended) with knowledge and get aligned with an experienced freight broker who knows how to avoid and minimize these. Going direct to the carriers will cost you a lot more!

    Here is a list of some trucking fees to be aware of that are in addition to the cost of moving freight from point A to B.

    Corrected Bill of Lading, up to $25 per shipment
    Inside Delivery/Pick up, average of $50.00 per occurrence
    Construction/Exhibit Site Delivery/Pick up, average of $40.00 per occurrence
    Liftgate Delivery/Pick up, average of $50.00 per occurrence
    Residential Delivery/Pick up, average of $50.00 per occurrence
    Limited Access Delivery/Pick up, average of $45 per occurrence
    High Cost Delivery area Delivery/Pick up, varies by carrier and zip code, usually $30
    Reconsignment, average of $35 per occurrence
    Redelivery, average of $25 per occurrence
    Storage, flat rate per day and varies by carrier
    Re classification, varies on weight and what the freight gets re classed to
    Will Call, usually free but I have seen a few carriers starting to charge for this


    ** Call me or email me if you have any questions.

    I hope this helps!
