Superload Truck Permitting

Fast. Easy. Reliable.

What happens when you move beyond routing oversize and overweight dimensions? You get into superload territory. Superloads are typically large items that cannot be divided into smaller individual loads. Common superloads include large power-plant transformers, industrial-scale HVAC equipment, large construction and mining equipment, power generators, wind turbines or other large pieces of equipment.

Because of their large size, superloads often require careful route planning, bridge and tunnel surveys, pilot car services and extensive permitting. Lucky for you, we’ve been doing this for years.

What Is a Superload?

There’s no nationally accepted standard for what constitutes a superload. Instead, it’s simply a term that’s often used by state and provincial permitting offices for any load that exceeds the dimensions or weight covered by their oversized or overweight permitting programs.

As a very general guideline, an oversized or overweight load can become a superload when:

  • Its weight exceeds 200,000 lbs
  • Its width exceeds 16’
  • Its height exceeds 16’

Our team of experienced superload planners and permit brokers can help you determine if your load is in fact a superload.

Superload Requirements

There’s more to getting a superload permit than just filling out a form. Often, superload permits can require:

  • Bridge capacity surveys
  • Route height capacity surveys
  • Multiple escorts and pilot cars
  • Load flagging requirements
