Empire Industries Announces Changes in Full Freight Allowance Policies – 01.10.2022

Company News

To: All valued Empire Industries Inc. Customers and Manufacturer’s Representatives.


Due to the continuous increases in over-length surcharges across the entire shipping industry, Empire Industries, Inc. will be implementing a change in how we handle Full Freight Allowance policies moving forward.  Effective January 17th, 2022, any material exceeding 6’ 6” in length will not be included in full freight allowed shipments. These items will be Plus Freight, and the accompanying surcharges will also apply.  This will include threaded rod, strut, V-channel, and any other overlength item.  Full Freight Allowed terms will apply to pipe hangers, pipe supports, and strut accessories only.


For reference, we have seen these over-length surcharges depending on the carrier and the region of the country:

  • 10’ lengths – Up to $277
  • 20’ lengths – Up to $1,200



If you have any questions, please contact your local Manufacturers’ Representative or the Empire Inside Sales staff at (800) 243-4844 /


We appreciate your continued support and look forward to servicing your future needs.
