Container Weight Limits:

Guidelines as adopted by the State of California and local authorities are described as follows:

20’ Loaded Containers:

  • Up to 38,000 lbs. cargo weight requires a steamship line slider chassis, and 3 axle tractor.
  • Over 38,000 lbs. up to 47,000 lbs. cargo weight requires a tri-axle chassis, and 3 axle tractor.
  • Over 47,000 lbs. up to 58,000 lbs. cargo weight = [80,000 lbs. to 95,000 lbs. gross weight] requires a tri-axle chassis or 4 axle tractor and an overweight permit.

40’ to 45’ Loaded Containers:

  • Up to 45,000 lbs. cargo weight on a steamship line 2 axle chassis, and 3 axle tractor (legal)
  • Over 45,000 lbs. up to 58,000 lbs. cargo weight = [80,000 lbs. to 95,000 lbs. gross weight] requires a tri-axle chassis, 4 axle tractor and an overweight permit.

Overweight Permit Load:

Any load that requires the use of a 4-axle tractor is required by the State of California, the County of Los Angeles, the City of Long Beach and the City of Carson to use an Overweight Permit and can only be hauled in the 4 mile Overweight Corridor. Click to view the Heavy Container Corridor Map

In order to make the load legal, the excess weight must be removed and put into another trailer. The container must then be reworked so the legal axle weights comply with DOT regulations. Failure to do so can result in heavy fines against the driver and the trucking company.
