Import Over-Dimensional / Over-Weight Cargo
Handling over-dimensional and over-weight import freight is one of PCC Logistics´ specialties. If you have a large, bulky, heavy, or odd sized item that needs to move, PCC Logistics can help you get it there - quickly and safely.
Import Over-Dimensional Cargo
PCC Logistics is equipped to handle over-dimensional shipments safely upon their arrival. PCC Logistics is well versed in the required permits, legal restrictions and necessary equipment to ensure the smooth transit of over-dimensional freight once discharged and requiring transit to its delivery point.
As PCC Logistics' facilities are located within two miles of all the major West Coast Ports, PCC Logistics is able to receive and transport over-sized and over-weight shipments legally and efficiently supported by such special equipment as tri-axle chassis, low-boys, and both single and double drop decks. This type of equipment permits PCC Logistics to effectively move your distinct cargoes safely so that you can rest easily while we do the heavy work.
Import Over-Weight Cargo
Because of legal weight limits on local roads within most States, shippers cannot transport an overweight container to its end destination in the usual manner. For instance, in the event one of your overseas suppliers stows excess cargo into one of your import containers which makes it impossible to transport legally, PCC Logistics should be your logistics company of choice to remedy such a situation.
In an instance such as this, a container would first have to be drayed to one of PCC Logistics' facilities within the surrounding 'overweight corridor" in a legal manner. The contents would then have to be unloaded and then cross-docked and redistributed into two over-the-road conveyances in order to pass highway inspection points along the way that verify the weight being transported.
While these costs can be cumbersome, the alternative of paying a fine into the five figures in addition to having to absorb the costs of unloading the extra freight at the weight station where it was stopped, into another truck will seem quite reasonable in comparison.
Therefore, you will find it far more cost effective to have PCC Logistics assist you in being proactive in such cases and in doing so save you the headaches and extra charges related to avoiding such a situation.
PCC Logistics maintains the following equipment to load, secure and transport your heavy-haul and overweight shipments:
- Tri-Axle Chassis Fleet
- Heavy Forklifts
- Equipment and Expertise to Block and Brace Special Shipments
PCC Logistics remains one of the foremost West Coast organizations that specialize in the accommodation of overweight and over-dimensional cargoes.
