Heavy Haul Trucking
Heavy Haul trucking can be a complicated matter, but at PDQ America we’ve got the experience and expertise required to arrange the shipment of your over-dimensional, overweight loads both safely and efficiently.
Anything above 80,000 lbs. is considered a heavy load. The difficulty with heavy haul trucking is that certain permits issued by various governmental agencies may be required. The federal government requires each state to set their own regulations for oversize and overweight shipments, but they are generally classified as cargo that exceeds a:
Width of 8.6 feet
Height of 13.6 feet
Length of 48 to 53 feet
Also, heavy haul trucking often involves special routing in order to use only highways that are suitable for these kinds of loads.
