There is no specific cargo weight limitation in the US but there is a limitation under the name of " Gross Vehicle Weight" regulation which includes Cargo weight, Cargo packing weight, entire container contents, Chassis and Truck weight. Furthermore there are restrictions on the distribution of weight which means that if cargo weight is within the cargo weight guideline, it can still be overweight per local, state and federal law. With this reason it is very difficult for Carrier to confirm whether or not your cargo can be transported to the US inland location.

Please refer to more information here.
