Dimensions and Weights can vary within same size category from what is posted here due to variances in design and parts used at the time of manufacture. All weights and dimensions noted are the measurements of our most common containers of that container size. Please inquire within if you have a specific limitation that must be met, otherwise rejection of equipment due to these weights and ratings is not the fault of Trailer Bridge.

*Weights noted are for GUIDANCE ONLY: Weights noted are based on heavier Sleeper-Cab Tractors which encompass the majority of OTR Movement. The legal weight on US Federal highways is 80,000 pounds. This gross weight includes the Truck, Fuel, Container, Chassis, Cargo, and every other item connected or carried by the Truck. The Max Cargo weight you can load on the Container will vary dependent on these variable weight items. Shippers are responsible for loading cargo in compliance with applicable weight limitations including Gross Weight and Axle weight balance (US Federal Bridge Law). Shipper also responsible for documenting accurate weight declarations on the Bill of Lading.
