Considerations for Heavy Equipment Shipping
Each state has different requirements for hauling oversized loads and shipments. It is very important to know the legal requirements for each state to make sure the proper permits have been acquired. Before any flatbed load is moved, the exact dimensions must be determined and the exact weight must be properly calculated so the correct equipment could be used to transport the load. You need to work with a professional transport service experienced in heavy equipment shipping, so the five key areas can be addressed.
Here are the five key areas regarding a large load:
- Know the legal limits for flatbed loads.
- Find out if the load is considered oversized.
- Learn the rules so you will know if a travel escort is required.
- Understand the factors that could impact your schedule.
- Know the meanings and the requirements regarding special markings.
A route must be set up and pre-determined before you leave on your journey. The size of the load is given utmost consideration. Your route might be longer and travel farther out of the way to avoid getting stuck or blocking traffic whenever that can prevented. Your transporter will work with the appropriate trasnportation departments to ensure the load is legally transported.
