When shipping wide loads of all the dimensions considerations in weight and dimensions of length, height, and width; width is the easiest to define. The maximum legal width across the United States is eight feet six inches. Any cargo over that is considered over width. When a load goes over this limit regulations to move the load become a little complicated. Permits will be needed in every state that the cargo travels through. This is where the costs can vary and start adding up. States can vary in price and regulations.

Some of the obvious variables to start to consider are the different lanes across each state defined by the actual width of these traveling lanes. Bridges will stop you dead in your tracks if you miss the correct heights. It is so important that oversize load trucking companies consider and verify these heights to prevent calling a last-minute audible. Will the load be moving over two-lane roads or four- lane inter-states? Unfortunately, some of the non-designated roads categories are considered over wide at even eight feet. There are even spring thaw regulations for over width loads.

Escorts for flatbed oversize trucking will also vary state by state. These regulations consider the route to determine if and what number of escorts and the approved formations of these escorts that will be needed to move the cargo. Police escorts in some situations may be required and considered in the oversize load rates.

Super loads are a category that is beyond over dimensional trucking regulations carrying another level of regulations and requirements. These super loads are considered in a variable range depending on each state from over fourteen to twenty feet. More time, restrictions, and higher costs are usually associated with and needed to clear permits for these super wide loads. A load can be predesignated as a super load if it exceeds all or one dimension in a given state. Each state in the route can require more time for approval, movement of utilities, route surveys, shippers letter, bridge analysis, high-end sketches of the shipment and the required additional escorts and pilot cars.

The lead pilot car in an oversize trucking companies transportation route travels a half mile ahead to make sure of the needed clearances and to be alerted of any unknown obstacles. This lead pilot car will communicate frequently his lane position, the road name, confirming clearance of obstructions, landmarks, and direction of travel. This lead car as it observes any obstructions or complications is charged with providing clear instructions on altering the route to all vehicles in the transport convoy. When alerted the rear pilot car now assures that the desired lane change is cleared as it maintains position in the new lane. This change is transmitted to the loaded trailers. This information is relayed constantly to assure the smooth movement and safety of the load one obstacle at a time. Oversize trucking companies are mandated to use the pilot car systems with the strictest regulated procedures to ensure the safety of transporting heavy haul and oversize loads within regulations.
