Accessorial Services Definition
Accessorials are unforeseen extra costs for transportation services such as added pickups, packing and unpacking fees.
What Are Accessorial Services?
Accessorials are unforeseen extra costs for transportation services such as added pickups, packing and unpacking fees. Other fees charged by freight carriers include trailer detention, fuel increases, and re-delivery costs. Unlike most fees in transport, accessorials are evaluated and applied post-shipment.
Besides, accessorials can be quite challenging to estimate for any logistics company and supply chain budget. This often brings more challenges to the supply chain manager, especially during the event of losses. Here at Heavy Equipment Transport, we strive to offer state-of-the-art assessments concerning unforeseen freight costs.
