Please see below from ABF regarding an update to their excessive length charges:


I received a notice from our pricing department. As we continue to navigate increasing customer demand in a solid pricing environment, we are initiating the following pricing actions for asset-based LTL Services effect 09/08/2021.

All non-deferred/non-standard Over-Dimension Charges (OD) will be increased as follows.

The standard Over-Dimension Charge (OD) contained in ABF Rules  Item 670: Change to the following.

  • Modified flat OD charges increase by $50 per shipment
  • Waived – Remove OD waiver and move to $50 per shipment.

For Non-deferred accounts that are producing low revenue or poor operating ratios they will be under review and accessorials will return to Standard ABF rules rates.

Please let me know if you have any Comments or questions.
