Typical Costs of Shipping
The average pallet shipping cost ranges from $90 - $480 and varies according to weight and contents of the pallet. Shipping subsequent pallets is considerably cheaper - especially if shipping to a residence (for example it might cost $200 to ship 1 pallet, but only $275 to ship 2 pallets, and $310 to ship 3 pallets).
Truckload shipping is calculated based on mileage and usually ranges around $2.00/mile to $2.25/mile with a minimum charge of $680.
Case-packed items shipped out with FEDEX / UPS are shipped at a flat rate that includes handling charges. These rates range from item to item and can be found in our shopping cart. Handling charges cover warehouse staff, packing materials, etc.
Minimizing Shipping Costs
Often times, in order to maximize on shipping, it can be recommended to order some case-packed items in addition to your pallets. Case-packed items can be stacked on top of most pallets and delivered at no additional charge to you, thus allowing you to spread your cost of shipping over a larger dollar amount of merchandise.
