Follow six independent shippers who have discovered that fortunes could be made transporting items that traditional carriers won’t touch in Shipping Wars. Each episode of A&E’s new original real-life series dives into the cutthroat world of rookie haulers and seasoned movers as they battle for the chance to transport the unshippable. The competition begins with uShip, the world’s largest online auction house for independent truckers. Every day, thousands of shipments are put up for auction. The battle is fierce as the movers have only minutes to bid, and the lowest bidder gets the load. From oversized loads and bulky packages to the truly bizarre, these shippers will haul anything if the price is right. The high-stakes race is on as they set out to deliver the loads in time, and any setback can cost big bucks.
|1||HDClosed CaptioningVideoPilot||The transporters compete for some unique shipments going cross-country as a 4,000 lbs., 22-foot steel horse and an oversized 7-foot-long Venus Flytrap come up for bid. Roy Garber and Jarrett Joyce are the big winners of the transports, respectively, but there's no time to celebrate when they both realize they may have bitten off more than they can chew. If the steel horse doesn't arrive on time, Roy will lose half his pay. Meanwhile, the Venus Flytrap is on a deadline for the opening night of the "Little Shop of Horrors" premiere. If Jarrett doesn't deliver the oversized prop on time, then the show doesn't happen. The stakes are high as they race to make sure their loads arrive intact and on time. One mistake and these loads could be their last.||21:04||$2.99||View in iTunes|
