What is heavy haul?
‘Heavy Haul’ term in freight describes a shipment carrying unusually large and wide load, for example manufacturing equipment that exceeds the guidelines for legal dimensions (width, height or length) and/or weight limits in which case special equipment and specials permits are required to transport the load. Heavy Haul in turn may have limits and may be referred to as a ‘Superload’.
Here are some tips for you to make your heavy haul shipment as stress-free as possible:
A few inches difference may result in a change of route, permit, and cost, if the dimensions or weight are subsequently changed, the carrier will need to re-apply for another permit at the shipper’s cost.
Any of these delays can add unexpected additional costs. The more prepared you are, the less unexpected costs will occur.
