A heavy hauling truck transporting large cargo
Cargo that exceeds the permissible legal dimensions and weight limits imposed by local state and federal legal limits are considered heavy haul trucking cargo. Conventional shipments are those that can fit within a standard closed trailer or container.
A large enclosed container is 53 feet long, 99 inches wide and 110 inches tall. A load which exceeds these dimensions requires a special trailer.
When it comes to the weight, extremely heavy loads require special trailers that can distribute the weight safely across the axles of the truck chassis.
There are a lot of risks involved in transporting oversized or overweight cargo. To reduce the risk, always engage the services of the best heavy haul trucking company like We Will Transport It.
