Sometimes Less-than-Truckload carriers have to provide unexpected services or accommodations in order to complete your delivery. This results in additional fees. Koho is here to help you avoid unexpected charges. Today, we’re talking about limited access fees. Limited access fees are charged when an LTL carrier deems a delivery or pick-up site to be difficult to get to. Unfortunately, this can be very subjective. Different carriers define “limited access” in different ways. But there are a few basic categories of what they will consider limited access: - First, places that are remote or physically difficult to access with a full-size truck and trailer, such as construction sites, farms, camps, fairs, or mining sites.- Secondly, high-security locations, such as military bases and prisons. - And, finally, places not open to the general public during normal working hours, such as colleges and schools, churches, mosques, and temples.Fees for delivery to places like these can range from around $50 to over $1,000. The best way to avoid unexpected limited access fees is to know exactly where you’re shipping from and where you’re shipping to. When you book with Koho, you select a category for your pickup and delivery destinations. Then our booking platform will automatically tell you if it’s likely to be considered limited access so you can get an accurate quote from carriers.Want to learn more about how to avoid unexpected fees?
