Types of Shipments
Small Parcel Shipment
One of the most cost-effective methods Eagle Mouldings ships material is via small parcel carriers such as FedEx and UPS. The best pricing for shipping through small parcel carriers would include sending material that is 93” or less to allow overall packaging lengths to stay at 96” or less to avoid any overlength fees. Eagle Mouldings can ship material as long as 105” through small parcel, however, the customer will see an increase in shipping costs due to carrier overlength fees. For expedited shipping, the customer must order the material to be cut down to small parcel shipping lengths.
Long Haul Truck Shipment
For those who need longer lengths of material shipping via common LTL (less-than-truckload) carrier is a great option. Shipping any stock or custom lengths up to 28’ in tubes or bundles, pallets or crates, Eagle does their best to work with the most reliable and cost-effective carriers to transport your aluminum safely and on-time.
The final delivery address can sometimes influence your LTL shipment. Common carriers charge limited access fees for locations including but not limited to schools, churches, airports, military bases, construction job sites, shopping malls, strip malls, casinos, hotels, restaurants, colleges or universities, residential addresses, narrow streets, alleyways, and hospitals. Locations that do not have a forklift or loading dock may also be charged a liftgate fee by the carrier.
Full Truckloads (FTL) and Partial Truckloads
No aluminum order is too big or too small. Eagle Mouldings offers full and partial truckload direct shipping in cases where additional trailer space is needed to safely transport the aluminum order.
Eagle Mouldings proudly ships to any location that FedEx or UPS will deliver to. If material must be shipped internationally via LTL the customer is in charge of all brokerage services and customs clearances and fees.

Eagle Mouldings offers will call services for next-day pick-up on all stocked items at our warehouse in Loretto, MN.
