Cargo Weights

As a member of  the Ocean Carrier Equipment Management Association (OCEMA), The below Maximum Gross Allowable Cargo Weights are intended only as a general guideline to promote safe and lawful transport practices regarding the maximum weight of cargo that can be loaded into international containers for transport over U.S. roads.  Use of this guideline does not in any way eliminate the obligation of the shipper, consignee, motor carrier, or other user to ensure that a particular load meets local, state or federal road weight limits and is otherwise safe and roadworthy for transport within the U.S.
