Limited delivery access.
If the pick up or drop off location has limited access for carriers and is not a part of the original quote, an adjustment may be applied. Limited access may include commercial businesses open to the walk-in public or where an employee is not available to assist with loading or unloading.
This adjustment is typically applied when a shipment picks up or delivers to a residence or business not publically marked and not factored into the original shipment quote.
Make sure the business name is accurately listed on the bill of lading.
Medical/urgent care site without a dock
Nuclear power plant
If the driver has to go out of their normal route area, cannot pull up to a loading dock and load or unload within 10-15 minutes, the location will be considered either Limited Access or Non-Commercial and additional fees will apply.
This typically means gated areas a driver must check into, commercial establishments not open to the walk-in public, or destinations where an employee is not available to assist with loading or unloading.
Below is a list of specific destinations considered Limited Access. Since some locations are at the discretion of the carrier, this is not an all-inclusive list, but instead includes the most common places where additional charges will apply:
