Depends. Most of the States has defferent regulation over the limitation of weight. You can find USA/CANADA Highway Maximum Cargo Weight Guideline here: http://w3c.evergreen-xiamen.com/common/weight%20limit.htm However most of the European countries allow 26 metric tons (57,000LB). Please keep in mind that there should be at least 1,000 kilogram kept for the weight of crates. Above mentioned weight limitation is for gross weight not for net weight of stone.
The density of most of the stone ranges from 2800 to 3000 kilogram per cube meter. Tiles in 1cm (3/8") thickness will be around 28 kilogram (62LB) per square meter. Or 5.8LB per square foot. Slabs, countertops, vanity tops, tiles in 2cm (3/4") will be around 56KGS per SQM. Most of the carved fireplace mantels will be around 400KGS each unit including package.<BR>
