Shipping To and From New York City

Shipping to and from New York City involves adherence to a range of regulations, including local, state and federal guidelines. It is essential to consider city ordinances regarding traffic, loading zones and delivery times. State regulations in New York govern transportation, weight limits and safety standards, while federal agencies like the FMCSA and DOT oversee interstate transportation rules. Compliance with permits, special requirements and documentation is necessary, especially for oversized or hazardous shipments. International shipping entails additional considerations, such as customs, import/export laws and tariffs. Working with logistics experts ensures compliance with the complex web of regulations for shipping to and from NYC. Considerations include tunnel height and weight restrictions, congestion pricing, truck routes, parking regulations and noise ordinances. The density and complexity of New York City make regulatory compliance especially crucial.

Special Considerations for Shipping Oversized Loads in New York

In New York, a vehicle or load is authorized to surpass a length of 140 feet exclusively on two-lane highways. Width allowances extend to 16 feet on two-lane highways and 18 feet or more on four-lane highways within the state. If the vehicle or load exceeds 200,000 pounds or requires crossing the centerline of a structure, specific restrictions are applicable in the state of New York.

In New York, a load is considered overweight if it exceeds the following weight limits: 21,000 lb. for a single axle, 34,320 lb. for a tandem axle, 34,320 lb. for a tridem axle and an overall maximum gross weight of 80,000 lb.
