Limited Access Pickup and Delivery Definition

A limited access location refers to any place with strict pickup and delivery restrictions. This might include areas which:

• Can only allow a smaller vehicle for pickup or delivery

• Is a highly secure, guarded, or gated site

• Does not allow visits from the general public during normal business hours

• Does not have a reliable loading platform or dork. Also, the area might lack enough personnel available to help with the loading and off-loading operations.

Some of the most common limited access areas include prisons, churches, airports, government facilities, hotels, farms, construction sites, hospitals, mini storage, schools, nursing homes, etc. If the limited access had not been named one during booking, the logistician might designate it as limited access, translating to a billing adjustment. Therefore, a shipper must know in advance when their loads are headed to a limited access destination. This will help them avoid surprise costs, unexpected delays, redelivery, or reroutes, among other inconveniences.

Shipping in a limited access location might sometimes require you to go through security checks and provide additional documentation to prove that the items you are transporting are safe. Most of these locations are deep into the interior, and therefore drivers have to negotiate some unpopular routes, consequently lengthening the delivery time.
