When a flatbed trailer is insufficient due to the shipment being too tall, wide, or heavy, heavy haul trucking becomes the necessary method of transportation.

Heavy haul trucking, also known as superload, oversize, overweight, or over-dimensional hauling, is elaborated below.

In the U.S., a superload refers to a truck tractor with an attached trailer carrying an over-dimensional or overweight object (the load) that surpasses the ordinary permit limits typically associated with oversize or overweight loads. Both the size and weight of a superload are regulated by the state the load is moving in and vary depending on the specific state regulations. An oversize load (including tractor and trailer) may exceed the standard legal dimensions of 13’6″ in height and 8’6″ in width (the length varies by state). The load must be non-reducible (cannot be reduced to legal dimensions). An overweight load must consist of a single unit to be shipped that will exceed the total legal gross weight of 80,000 lbs for the truck, trailer, and the unit being shipped.

Equipment that may be required for heavy haul:

  • Double Drops
  • Extendable Trailers
  • Removable Goosenecks (RGN)
  • Stretch Trailers
  • Trailers may be 5, 6, 7, 9, 10, 13 and 20 axle

Legal Requirements for Oversize, Overweight, and Superloads:

Understanding the legal considerations, permits, and technical challenges associated with hauling heavy haul loads is essential for a successful oversized load shipment.

States mandate that certain oversize loads must be accompanied by certified Pilot/Escort Vehicle Operators (P/EVO) to ensure the safety of the motoring public and the oversized load. The role of a P/EVO is to safely escort a superload from its origin to its destination without causing damage to the load, motorists, highways, roads, bridges, control devices, signs, overhead objects, or property.

PA Logistics Solutions will oversee the transportation of your superload shipment from inception to completion, which includes obtaining special permits for each state – and county permits as required, pilot cars or other escort vehicles, and any additional equipment necessary to transport your heavy haul load safely.

PA Logistics Solutions will coordinate the logistics for even the most challenging shipments your company requires, delivering them safely, punctually, and at a competitive cost.
