Examples Of Limited Access Pickup & Delivery Locations
Some examples of limited access locations are: airports, construction sites, churches, government facilities, farms, hotels/ motels, hospitals, schools, mini-storage facilities, nursing homes, prisons, and other such locations.
Limited access locations that have not been specified as such when the shipment was booked may be designated as limited access by the driver. This will result in a billing adjustment. To avoid the adjustment after the fact, select the Limited Access accessorial charge when booking the shipment.
