For outbound freight from any of our locations we pick up freight direct from shippers, and will route it out on LTL carriers, our own line haul, other line hauls or direct drop at Airlines Cargo locations. If we are picking up freight consigned for routing out on an airline we will only pick up from ‘Known Shippers’ as defined by TSA certification requirements.
We have line haul partnerships that go to major distribution hubs with local delivery capabilities. However, if we do not actually handle it within any part of our network during part of the move, then we would not get involved in the process. You can contact Corporate or Atlanta for more information specific to a freight move outside of our footprint.

Your freight needs to be packaged and/or palletized to move and it is a shipper’s responsibility for packaging the goods. Shrink wrap, corrugated boxing, palletizing and strapping or banding are the most common type of packing materials. We can provide labor and materials to do this for the shipper, but accessorial charges will be levied against such activity.
Any shipment containing a piece exceeding 12ft (144 inches) in length will be assessed a $50 'Over-length' Fee, in addition to all other applicable charges.

Special Service reserves the right to defer transport of such freight until suitable space is available on its equipment.
See terms and Conditions posted on this website, but all shortages and/or apparent damage must be noted on the Bill of lading by the consignee or his agent at the time of delivery. Any damage must be photographed and documented prior to opening and/or moving the freight from within its first seen position within the vehicle and/or as dropped at your location while still under the control of Special Service. Any handling by consignee before damage is recorded, or after a clean sign-off has been given, will be considered the point at which consignee has taken full control of the freight and assumed all liability.

Responsibility for the non-observance of the conditions relating to consignments which are not acceptable for carriage or are acceptable only under certain conditions rests upon the shipper and consignee of the shipment who will be liable to SSFC for any loss, damage or liability or penalties it may incur because of carriage of any such consignment. All shipments are subject to inspection by SSFC.
