Freight Customers

The Steamship Authority offers frequent daily sailings for those transporting vehicles of all sizes. If you are planning to travel on one of our ferries with a truck or commercial vehicle 20 feet or more in overall length, your reservation needs to be booked by our reservation office. Whether you are a camper traveling with your recreational vehicle, a business making a one time delivery or a company undertaking a project that needs a series of reservations, our experienced staff is always eager to assist you.

For Nantucket freight customers only: we offer a drive-on/drive-off service for unattended Steamship Authority charge account customer trucks. A driver’s service agreement must be completed, which is available by contacting our Accounting Department at (508) 548-5011, ext. 207.

Please be prepared to provide the exact height, length and width of your vehicle.
Some helpful hints:

  • Maximum height: 13’6”
  • Maximum width: 11’6”
  • Vehicles that are wider than 8’6” will be charged double the applicable fare.

RENTAL TRUCKS: Rental companies give dimensions of the truck bed, please ask your rental agent for bumper to bumper length. Reservations will not be honored for vehicles larger than reserved.

Please inform us if your cargo is placarded as hazardous material, as we have certain trips reserved for that.
