STAR CASE uses several carriers on an international basis. More often than not your cases will be within the size and weight limitations enforced by the most popular parcel services allowing very prompt delivery. Common Carrier truck lines are our second option for shipping your case(s) to your destination. Only when an item exceeds the limits of the parcel services or the total number of units makes shipping the cases via parcel service impractical, do we use Common Carrier truck transport.
STAR CASE uses major common carriers on a national basis for most surface truck shipments. These carriers provide perhaps the broadest coverage of service throughout the United States and have dispatch and consolidation centers in nearly every major metropolitan area.
Prior to shipment from STAR CASE we wrap each Star Case product individually with high strength sheet corrugated material to avoid damage or marring in transit.
The following material deals with how to determine the most common parcel sizing and weight limitations per package. Air Freight is an expensive proposition that should be used only if there's an emergency. If you have any questions regarding specific air freight rates please contact an air freight forwarder in your local area.
|Maximum weight per package||150 Pounds|
|Maximum size per package||165 Inches (longest dimension cannot exceed 108 inches.)|
NOTE! Remember to add 9" to the girth dimension to compensate for STAR CASE-PROVIDED corrugated wrapping material around case.
The answers to these as well as numerous other questions are available by contacting the freight company or air carrier with whom you intend shipping.
