Overweight containers are too heavy to be legally moved over the road without specialized equipment and permits. We handle these land side logistical details, enabling you to load as much as 25% more units per container.
I.C.E. has a built-in network of heavy haul trucking partners who handle heavy and oversized goods. Some we have worked with for decades.
Use one partner for freight booking, documentation, customs clearance and final delivery. Services include any special permits required to move your overweight containers.
A shipper of knock-down furniture was planning to load its ocean containers to a standard 44,000 pounds at a door-to-door shipping cost of $3,930, or $196.50 per metric ton. I.C.E. Transport recommended increasing the container payload to 55,000 pounds. This increased the door-to-door shipping cost slightly (based on higher final mile trucking costs) but lowered the shipping cost metric per ton to $170.40 – a significant $26.10 per ton savings for this high-volume shipper.
Let's figure it out together.
