ATE FOR INFORMATION
e the same restrictions (80,000 lbs GVW)
 ermits over 80,000 lbs. See Below:
What is the Gross Vehicle Weight in the U.S.?

The Gross Vehicle Weight ( GVW ) is the combined weight of the container, cargo, chassis and tractor.
For 40’ and 45’ containers the applicable GVW is 80000 lbs and for a 20’ it is 68000 lbs. Starnet lists
the relevant cargo weights with different equipment in both pounds and kilograms.

Are overweight permits available?

Any state that offers overweight permits is listed on the permit info tab on the weight guideline listed
on starnet. Nineteen states allow more than the standard 80000 lbs GVW.
If a state is not listed on permit page, permits are not obtainable and the standard weights listed on the
weight guideline tabs should be utilized.
Please note that all the states between the origin and destination must allow permits, if trucking is
necessary.

Are triaxle chassis available?
Maersk does not own triaxles. Truckers charge Maersk additional fees for triaxle usage. Delays in
delivery can occur, since triaxles are specialized equipment. Triaxle charges vary from location to
location and can be up to $200 per use, but triaxles are not available in all locations. Cargo weight for a
triaxle should be 45000* lbs.

* triaxle weight disclaimer – 45,000 lbs is the maximum legal weight that can be hauled using a triaxle
chassis, however, some truckers may refuse to haul this weight as it may be damaging to the chassis.
Suggestion is to load between 42 and 44,000 lbs for triaxle chassis use.

Under no circumstances can triaxle moves be “drops.” All moves must be live unloads. Additionally
round trip rates apply to triaxle moves so the chassis can be returned to its origin.


What are the axle limitations?

Cargo must be loaded evenly throughout the container.

Steer axle: 12,000 lbs
Tandem axle: 34,000 lbs
Tandem axle: 34,000 lbs

What is the maximum weight on the rail?
The maximum would be 65000 lbs on the rail. However; the maximum is dictated by the allowable
weight for the truck move to the rail and/or the truck move from the rail to the store door, where transit
on public roadways is necessary.
