Heavy Haul Trucking
eavy haul trucking is the go-to method when traditional trucking methods just can’t cut it. Shipping over-dimensional items and heavy hauls present a unique set of problems that require unconventional solutions to avoid risks to cargo. These loads often require additional permits, training or licensing, regulated routes, specialized equipment, designated trucking times and/or additional escort to be completed safely and effectively.

Some Common Trucking Configurations
Flatbed Trailer – Open-deck trailers designed for loads that will not fit in a traditional box trailer or need to be loaded or unloaded without a dock.
RGN Truck – Removable Gooseneck trailers are a versatile configuration that allows cargo to be driven onto the trailer. The gooseneck is detached so that large equipment, such as excavators can be driven onto the trailer. A lowboy RGN trailer can also be loaded from the side for cargo that cannot be driven onto the trailer.
Steerable – A steerable trailer is designed for loads with excessive length. Navigation of long loads can make narrow turns more difficult. Steerable trailers lessen the degree of difficulty by adding maneuverability to the trailer’s rear axles. This allows drivers better access to tight and narrow areas.
Step-deck Trailer – Also known as a drop-deck or lowboy, these trailers are similar to flatbeds. The deck of the trailer drops down beyond the truck to accommodate taller loads
What Type Of Cargo Is Considered Overweight Or Oversized?
This is again an area where the roads being traveled will impact what is considered overweight or oversized. A general rule of thumb is that any load greater than 12’ tall, 12’ wide, and 65’ long qualifies. In addition, total gross vehicle weight is also a factor. Standard truck licenses cover a GVW of 80,000 lbs in most states and 105,500 lbs in others. Weights in excess will require special permits and equipment.
Some common overweight and oversized loads include:
- Large Commercial Wind Turbine Equipment
- Electrical Substation Transformers
- Prefabricated Homes or Kits
- Military Equipment and Machinery
- Commercial Construction Equipment
- Railway Equipment and Vehicles
