Moving terms (shipper, PBO)

All industries have their specific terms. Here are a couple that you might hear from your local moving company.

PBO (Packed By Owner)
Articles packed into cartons or crates by the shipper, not the carrier.

Reweigh
Second weighing of shipment performed at destination at the shipper’s or the carrier’s request.

Road Van
A long haul tractor-trailer that moves shipments long distance (which is generally considered over 450 miles).

Shipper
The person (customer) whose goods are being moved.
