How Much Will A Freight Class 50 Cost?

Over the years, shipping giant United Parcel Service has seen tremendous growth. In a new era of online and mobile commerce where buyers demand speedy delivery times, UPS has adapted itself to that by engineering better and more efficient trucks, making them among the most fuel-efficient on the road — literally. Today UPS owns about 80 per cent of its worldwide fleet which consists of around 20,000 trucks – some which can travel as far as 40,347 miles without refueling. The company even manages its own air freight. This all allows for speedier deliveries and investment in better technologies, meaning it isn’t unheard of for shipments to complete their journey from origin to destination within two or three days, or less.

Simply put, class 50 is for transporting very dangerous objects.   I don’t know how much you know about UPS but it seems safe to say that the company has large trailers of Class 50 packed with unknown or extremely heavy objects. These are some examples: The Large Package Carriers : 44′-9″ high x 55′-10″ long x 9′-2″ wide; Transport these kinds of items safely and faster across the country by using one of these shippers: Landstar, Prime Inc., or U.S. Postal Service  Transportation Services: Stops include Los Angeles, Dallas Fort Worth’s Metroplex, Kansas City Intl Airport and Houston Hobby Airport depending on your destination 
They also have special classes of trucks dedicated to shipping radioactive materials such as Uranium, Thorium and Plutonium.  
Items similar to this can be said of other pacific-North shipping lines such as Purolator who run at least 10 truckloads a week carrying shipments with an individual volume greater than 150kg (330 lbs) via their standard UPAC Class 1a trailer(700kg), UPAC Class 1b full trailer (220kg) along with the containers that ship hazardous materials within various company fleets all across North America.
