"Head Load" quotes

As another value added product, Truckload pricing can also offer selective "head load" pricing on various lanes within our 38 state coverage area. Available capacity determines these lane offerings, as these will vary daily. Shipment size must exceed 12 linear feet of trailer space or weigh more than 8,000 lbs in order to qualify for this pricing. Once shipment exceeds 21 feet or 20,000 lbs, full volume rates will be applied.
