Details When a platform trailer is insufficient because the shipment is too high, wide or heavy, a heavy cargo transport method is your only option.
The transport of heavy cargo, also commonly called: overfeeding, oversized, overweight or oversized, is explained below.
In the USA U.S., An overload is a truck tractor with a trailer attached that has an oversized or overweight object (the load) that exceeds the ordinary permit limits associated with overweight or oversized loads. Both the size and the weight of an overload are regulated by the state in which the load moves and is different depending on the state in which it is located. A large load (including tractor and trailer) may exceed the standard legal dimensions of 13’6 “in height and 8’6” in width (length varies by state). The load must be non-reducible (can not be reduced to legal dimensions). An overweight load should consist of a single unit that will be shipped that will exceed the legal gross gross weight of 80,000 pounds for the truck, trailer and unit shipped.
