Oversize Trucking

Oversize Load Trucking

Oversize trucking & load shipments are some of the most difficult to transport. They often exceed the size limits set for some trailers, meaning they cannot be shipped by general freight flatbed trailers or truck drivers. Specialized equipment, experienced drivers are required to navigate roadways, bring special attention to safety and freight. Based in Birmingham, Alabama, we have experience in heavy haul freight from oil/mining machinery to pre-assembled homes.

Oversize Trucking Logistics

Oversize trucking is not for amateurs. There are three things, in particular, that make the best heavy haul carriers stand out. First, highly skilled drivers. Second, excellent equipment. Third, seamless coordination with all parties involved, including the customer. This is vital to get the job done efficiently and effectively. With special planning needed for oversize load freight, our team helps to plan the following logistics to follow legal load guidelines:

Permits – If hauling oversized freight, permits are required for each state you pass through. We help to coordinate the proper permits to keep shipments on the road. 
Route Planning –  A business must plan its route carefully before oversize freight on the road. Prior to shipment, the vehicle’s logistics should be studied and a plan made – typically done 30 to 60 days ahead of time. When planning a route, a carrier should consider obstacles such as construction sites or infrastructure limitations. Technology should also be leveraged in order to make this process run more smoothly.
Escort Vehicles – Most states also require escort vehicles with a heavy haul, oversize load. Whether through the government or a private party, we help to make those arrangements. Overheight loads may also require a pilot car to drive in front to check for low height clearances.
