OOG Shipping: Ultimate Guide
OOG shipping can be intimidating for beginners.
You get bombarded with safety concerns. And YOU risk paying expensive penalties if you make mistakes.
But here’s what we know as a long-term freight forwarder:
Opting for Out-Of-Gauge cargo services isn’t as hard as you think.
Our experts gathered together to make this ALL-IN-ONE guide about OOG shipping. You don’t need to spend time doing FURTHER research.
Let’s get into it!
What is OOG Shipping?
It’s the SHIPMENT of Out-Of-Gauge cargo. Or GOODS with dimensions that exceed the clearance of REGULAR containers.
Specifically, the dimensions of OOG shipments are OVER the following measurements:
- Width of 2.33m.
- Height of 2.59m.
- Length of 12.05m.
Note: OOG shipping is usually more expensive than other shipment types. Because ODDLY-shaped goods cause more wasted space inside boats/aircraft vessels
Common types of Out of Gauge Cargo (OOG Cargo)
COMMON types of OOG cargo are:
- Heavy machinery
- Oil refinery equipment
- Military goods
But really, ALL products that can’t fit inside regular containers are OOG.
Depending on their width and length, OOG goods are loaded and carried by…
Different container types:
#1: Flat rack container
A flat rack container is a container with only 2 walls. It’s IDEAL for elongated products like vehicles or construction cranes.
#2: Open-top container
An open-top container has 4 walls connected and an open top. CRANES are necessary to lift and place OOG cargo inside open-top containers.
Fun fact: Flat racks and open-top containers usually have LASHING RINGS connected. And they serve as lifting points. So it’s easier for the carrier to carry your cargo.
How does OOG shipping work?
Step 1: Your shipper receives your cargo’s information.
This usually includes the following:
- Your cargo’s weight and dimensions.
- The final destination of your OOG goods.
- What type of product do you want to ship.
Once you and your freight forwarder agree with the shipping cost…
Step 2: The shipping company picks up your order.
Sometimes, your supplier might DELIVER the OOG cargo to your freight forwarder.
Step 3: Your cargo is loaded and transported.
Freight forwarders usually take care of planning and preparing your shipment’s documents. So ALL you need to do after this step is wait for your OOG cargo.

How do you calculate Out of Gauge shipping rate?
There’s no one-size-fits-all EQUATION for calculating the OOG shipping rate. After all, different companies have DIFFERENT fees.
The best way to KNOW how much your shipping rate is to:
Ask for a QUOTATION including the following information:
- The product you’re shipping.
- Your cargo’s dimensions and weight.
- Point of loading.
- Final destination.
- Your cargo’s center of gravity.
- Lifting points of your goods.
- Special instructions for your products.
A freight forwarder gives you a QUOTATION based on your answers above. It’s a general estimate of HOW MUCH you’d have to pay during your cargo’s shipment.
Note: The rate may also increase if you ask for VALUE-ADDED services. Like customs brokerage or doorstep delivery.
How to find OOG shipping forwarders?
Step 1: Know where your supplier’s location.
An OOG cargo is HARD and expensive to transport. So some shippers ONLY pick up oversized goods from nearby locations.
Once you know where your supplier is…
Step 2: Search for OOG freight forwarders.
It’s best to get DIRECT RECOMMENDATIONS from other businesses. Especially those first-hand experiences with shipping with these companies.
But if you don’t directly know any business owner…
You may use online forums like REDDIT or QUORA.
Just post a question saying something like:
“Do some of you know any good OOG freight forwarders near (your supplier’s place)?”
Then, wait for their responses.
Note: You can only use GOOGLE search for this process.
Step 3: Contact 3 freight forwarders.
Ask 3 companies from the suggestions you got for quotations.
And when you receive replies from all 3 freight forwarders…
COMPARE their shipping fees and whether they have the VALUE-ADDED services you need. Ask follow up questions if needed.
Finally, pick the freight forwarder that’s the best for your cargo.
Pro tip: Always double-check if the company you’re about to contact is RELIABLE. You use forums to ask around. Or you use GOOGLE to search “(Freight forwarder name) reviews.”
How to avoid trouble with OOG shipping?
MISTAKES and errors are common with OOG shipping. But avoiding them is EASY as long as you follow the following tips!
#1: Contact a freight forwarder that specializes in OOG cargo
LOTS of shipping companies say they’re experts when they’re not. So you should 100% double-check if a freight forwarder is EXPERIENCED at handling OOG. Before you FINALIZE your transaction.
#2: Give accurate dimensions to your shipping company
Freight forwarders need a LOT of preparation before picking up your cargo. If you give them the WRONG dimensions, they’ll prepare the wrong-sized TRUCK. And this DELAYS your cargo transport. You also need to PAY EXTRA for the freight forwarder’s expenses.
#3: Using the port’s container for last-mile delivery
The port usually provides the flat racks or open-top containers your cargo uses. But you shouldn’t USE THEM until the doorstep delivery of your goods. You’ll need to pay the trucker EXTRA to return the EMPTY container to the port.
#4: Secure your load correctly
This is more like your freight forwarder’s job. But you should still verify that your shipper LOADED your goods safely.
