Optional Guaranteed Freight Program
Optional Freight Guaranteed Program
Peter Pepper Products, Inc. (PPP) offers an optional ‘Freight Guaranteed Program’ on all FOB points, with delivery via common carrier or United Parcel Service (UPS). Freight charges are precalculated and prepaid by PPP and added to the original invoice at time of shipment. This optional Freight Guaranteed Program enables the purchaser to determine freight charges when ordering and provides one invoice for both PPP products and freight.
Freight charges are for normal dock delivery only and does not include Residential, inside or call before delivery, uncartoning, installation or removal of cartons.
The purchaser may also specify their own carrier, request a quote or 'best way.' Delivery is via common carrier, United Parcel Service (UPS) or your preferred carrier.
A request for ‘call before delivery’ is $50 additional. Additional charges will be determined on a per-shipment basis.
For shipments outside the continental U.S., contact Customer Service for freight information.
Merchandise is shipped cartoned, FOB factories, freight prepaid, to one destination. Title of goods changes when merchandise leaves PPP dock and any subsequent freight damage and all freight claims are the responsibility of the purchaser or consignee to contact the carrier within 72 hours of delivery and report the damage and request an inspection.
Unless otherwise noted on your order, PPP will ship ‘Freight Guaranteed’ and will select the most appropriate carrier and routing on all shipments. If the customer specifies a carrier, freight will ship via that carrier, collect, 3rd party or ‘Will Call’.

All shipments previously determined by UPS to be “Oversize” will now be billed on the Dimensional Weight of the shipment. Dimensional weight rates are applicable only to UPS Ground packages that are three cubic feet or larger. Dimensional weight is calculated in inches by multiplying width x height x depth, divided by 166 = dimensional weight.
Billable weight will be based on actual package weight or the dimensional weight, whichever is greater. Packages smaller than three cubic feet will be billed based on actual weight.
Please note that in some cases, UPS Dimensional weight may also apply to multiple combined products shipped in the same box. The estimated actual shipping weight of each product is shown in our Price List.
