More Shipping Estimating – Jersey and Airport Barriers

Tuesday, August 13, 2013 By: admin

jersey barrierThis post is dedicated to estimating shipping costs on barriers which include jersey barriers, water fill able barricades and airport barricades as they all ship in the same class (class 250 – different classes have different costs).  In other posts I focused on cost per unit when determining average cost to ship to a particular region.

Because unit weights vary across barrier products (19lb airport barricade versus 130lb jersey barrier) I think it will make more sense to calculate cost based on price per pound.  I will also separate it out based on where they are shipping from.  This first post will be about barriers I have that ship out of Utah.

Airport BarricadeSo first off here are the products I have that ship out of Utah: LCD Jersey Barrier, 10 x 96 Airport Barricade and the 24 x 96 Airport Barricade.  Below are the averages I have found going back to the beginning of 2012.  As you can see the prices can vary a lot and this seems to be due to volume.  You are going to get a much better rate per pound shipping 13,000 lbs versus 200 lbs.
