Reasons Why LTL Published Rate Quotes Would Not Be Available

Updated

There are a number of factors which cause a shipment to not quote in the uShip LTL Published Rates. When this occurs, you will be directed to make a listing in the uShip Marketplace instead of the LTL Published Rates. The factors that would direct you to the Marketplace are as follows:

  • Any single piece of freight weighing more than 4,500 lbs. 
  • Shipment dimensions (any one single piece) greater than one or more of the following: Length of 144", Width of 96", and Height of 96".
  • Shipment dimensions (any one single piece) greater than one or more of the following when a liftgate is required: Length of 60", Width of 91", Height of 96"

Accessorial Factors

  • Blind Shipment coordination
