United States Oversize Load Trucking

Oversize load shipments are freight shipments that exceed the maximum size limits that are legally set for trailers. Special permits are required to ship these loads, and these shipments may require special paths or routes to avoid things like narrow passageways, low bridges, certain tunnels, or other obstacles. Because of these limitations and unique requirements, oversize load shipments can be complex and may cost more or be more difficult to coordinate, but when you work with Red Dog Logistics, you can trust that we’ll get your products and equipment where they need to be safely.

Examples of Oversize Load Transportation Needs

As mentioned, oversize loads are any loads that exceed the size limits set forth for trailers. These can include things like:

  • Oversize freight that is extra wide, long, or tall—from many different industries including construction, manufacturing, automotive, and more.
  • Overweight or heavy haul shipments such as vehicles
  • Equipment and machinery for the oilfield, mining, construction, manufacturing, and farming industries.
  • Pre-assembled homes (which are becoming more and more popular as the “tiny home” movement increases in visibility)
  • Boats, trucks, and other vehicles
  • Large, trailer mounted equipment
  • Large machinery or vehicles such as cranes or bulldozers
  • Construction and building materials like steel structures, beams, and more.
