Strange Loads?

Posted on Oct 21 , 2013
Strange Loads When we see 18 wheelers on the road, we often see them hauling large freight such as non-perishable food items, hazardous chemicals, industrial materials and various other goods. But occasionally truckers are requested to deliver not-so-common items. Below are stories as told by those who had some strange loads.
  • “I once hauled an empty, 3x8 ft. plywood box on a flatbed from LA to Salt Lake City. It was the only thing on the trailer. They really, really wanted their box back I guess.”
  • “ … A load of dinosaur fossils from a museum in Ohio to a museum in Wisconsin.”
  • “ … A super-secret hazmat load of ping pong balls.”
  • “A few years back, I hauled a meat cutting machine from Charlotte to Kansas City. Total weight was 500 pounds.”
  • “15,000 lbs. of Viagra!”
  • “I once pulled a load that was 1280 lbs. from South San Francisco to Allentown, PA. The insured amount was 70 million … I found out it was some cancer drug from tree bark.”
  • “The strangest load I ever hauled was an entire load of frozen beef pizzle … that’s the male member from a bull or steer. Apparently it is a delicacy in the Far East? We used to haul it from Wisconsin to the bay area in California and from there it was shipped to Japan, China, and Hong Kong.”
  • “How about a load of Skinless Hotdog Skins?! No, it’s no joke. They cook the hot dogs in the skins then cut them off. They’re made of a type of paper. Picked them up in London, TN, but don’t remember where I took them … think it was Dubuque, Iowa.”
  • “Once my co-driver and I had to pick up a load of women’s undergarments from Vanity Fair in GA. Not really strange, but funny. On my log sheets, I listed my cargo as ‘panties!’”
