What is transportation of oversized cargo

Transportation of oversized cargo is the process of delivering goods that cannot be transported by standard vehicles due to their size, weight or shape. Typically, oversized cargo is considered to be cargo whose dimensions exceed standard transportation standards, for example, a length of more than 12 meters, a width of more than 2.5 meters or a height of more than 4 meters. There may also be oversized cargo that has a non-standard shape or requires special packaging or handling.

Transportation of oversized cargo requires a special approach and specialized equipment. For this purpose, special vehicles are used, such as heavy trucks, low-load trailers, manipulators, cranes and other equipment. In addition, it is necessary to carry out preliminary assessment and planning for the transport of oversized cargo to determine the optimal route, select the appropriate vehicle and ensure the safety of the cargo throughout the entire logistics chain.

Tasks of transportation of oversized cargo

One of the most important tasks when transporting oversized cargo is ensuring safety. Transporting such goods can be dangerous both for the cargo itself and for the environment and people. Therefore, it is necessary to take all precautions when transporting oversized cargo, such as using special packaging, securing the cargo on the vehicle, choosing a safe route, etc.

In addition, the transport of oversized cargo may require special permission or license from local authorities such as road authorities, customs authorities or other regulatory authorities. This is due to the fact that transportation of oversized cargo can lead to traffic restrictions on the roads, damage to the road surface, violation of traffic rules and other problems.
