Re: Start Trucking your own bees TODAY!
I passed two loads of bees headed out of Hartford CT a couple of days ago. Pretty late to be headed south, maybe it was just empty equipment, but the loads were both netted.
You don't want to haul across country overloaded, you will get a dozen tickets and take all the profit out of your pollination contract in a hurry. Max weight for the interstate system is 80K. Depending on how you are loaded you can be well under 80K and still be over loaded on one axle set. OK is about the worst stickler in the country on weight... Ohio is pretty tough at the scales also. They will ticket you for being 1 lb over and inspect the truck and issue a 10 safety violations on top of it.
