Oversized Road Transportation
With the development of business and the need to quickly respond to market changes, more and more enterprises require road transportation of oversized cargoes. This is a fast, mobile and fairly inexpensive way of transporting goods.
Large construction and industrial companies often turn to Kredo-Group in order to deliver goods with dimensions much larger than those of standard vehicles. We have been working with oversized cargoes for many years, so we perfectly know all the ins and outs of transportation in Russia and abroad. We deliver goods along the optimal route, safely and in strict accordance with applicable regulations and laws.
WHAT CARGO IS CONSIDERED OVERSIZED
Objects with a width exceeding 2.5 m, a height over 4 m and a length over 16 m are considered oversized. By itself, it is divided into categories: large-sized (dimensions exceed those established for highway traffic); heavy (cargo weight including that of the vehicle exceeds the axle load requirements); boats, cars; industrial equipment; reservoirs; boilers, etc. These types of cargo include: agricultural machinery; construction equipment; long cargo (cargo protruding over the vehicle tailgate by more than 2 meters).
First of all, before shipping any oversized item, it is necessary to check whether it is fastened securely enough, because harsh maneuvers of motor vehicles may cause it to drop. The cargo must be placed in accordance with the following conditions: it shall not block the driver's view; it shall not affect the stability of the vehicle; it shall not cover lighting devices; it shall not create any extraneous sounds when driving. If at least one of these conditions is not met, the transportation of such cargo is not allowed until the violations are completely eliminated.
