When do machinery rates apply?
For machines that are:
- Over 2,500 lbs
- Uncrated (if crated, must be labeled clearly with contents)
- Able to be lifted by a forklift or crane
- No empty storage included (if crate storage is needed, a cost may be associated)
- Items used as display or toolboxes are not included
Important Info for machinery rates:
- Certified weight tickets are required.
- Mixed load shipments without separate weight tickets do not qualify for the Machinery rate.
- When shipping a mixed load, separate weight tickets are required to distinguish between machinery and exhibit materials.
- All shipments must have proper inbound Bill of Lading or carrier bill with weight breakdowns.
- To be sure you receive the correct rate, invite the Shepard Customer service rep to your booth as you open your crate so they can verify what is in your crate.
