Oversize Freight Shipping Services

Freight is considered oversized when its weight or dimensions exceed the standards set by state or federal regulatory agencies or the carrier being used. Oversized shipments often include construction or agricultural equipment, industrial machinery, prefabricated buildings, and commercial installations. CargoRx will ensure your oversized freight’s safe and efficient delivery by providing specialized carriers, equipment, and expertise.

The Importance of Using an Oversize Load Transport Specialist

CargoRx possesses the knowledge, experience, and resources to navigate the logistical challenges of oversized cargo transportation. We offer a variety of trailers, such as flatbed trailers, step deck trailers, extendable trailers, and lowboy trailers, which accommodate varying cargo configurations, weights, dimensions, and loading/offloading dynamics. Where required, CargoRx can also facilitate escort vehicles for oversized loads.

Types of Oversized Freight

Oversize freight shipping services are varied and contingent on the type of cargo being transported:

Legal Limits and Regulations for Oversized Loads

Strict legal limits and regulations govern oversize freight shipping to ensure public safety and infrastructure protection. Weight and dimensional limits can vary by jurisdiction and cargo type. Exceeding these limits will result in fines and penalties. Complying with legal transportation requirements is crucial, including permitting where necessary, adhering to route restrictions, and following safety guidelines. CargoRx’s knowledgeable logistics team will help ensure compliance with these regulations.

The Oversized Freight Shipping Process: Efficient Transportation from Start to Finish

A successful oversized freight conveyance involves several key steps:

  • Assessment and Planning: This initial phase involves gathering comprehensive cargo information (commodity, ready time, needed-by time, weight, dimensions, strapping, stowing, blocking, bracing, and rigging requirements, loading and offloading dynamics, technical requirements, and onsite team coordination) to determine the optimal route and identify potential challenges like transit time restrictions, permitting, and seasonal restrictions.
  • Permit Acquisition: Permits may be required for oversized shipments and define the legal requirements for transport. CargoRx will work with the necessary agencies to streamline this process and ensure timely transport of your oversized cargo.
  • Route Planning: Route planning is a meticulous task where variables like road conditions, road width, bridge capacity, construction zones, potential obstacles, and legal restrictions are contemplated. Advanced mapping tools are used to help identify optimal routes given these potential variables.
