There is no federal, set criteria for what is considered a “super load.” The definition of “super load” depends on which states your freight will pass through.
However, a super load is basically a load that exceeds the dimensions of a state’s “routine permit limits” and is non-divisible, meaning it can’t be broken down in separate, smaller parts for shipping.
A super load goes beyond the permit limits in one or a combination of ways, from length, to width, to height, to weight, depending on the state’s regulations. These special kinds of loads might also warrant extra time to gain state approval and could require additional services like a route survey, police escort, or pilot cars.
