Heavy Haul Permits
States, rather than the federal government, have the responsibility for regulating and distributing oversize / overweight trucking permits. Before traveling on a state’s highways, a heavy load transporter must seek oversize / overweight permits. In determining which loads require permits, states usually consider not only weight, but also the amount of weight in relation to the number of axles.
Over Dimensional is not out of bounds with ATS
Oversize transportation is not as simple as loading a trailer and setting off towards a destination. Instead, there are complicated technical and logistical processes involved. At ATS, we’ve had more than 60 years to get it right. Thanks to our long experience and in-house department for trucking permits, over dimensional transportation can be hassle-free every step of the way.
If you have an heavy haul, oversized load to move, oversize permits are required. These permits are provided to allow a freight carrier to transport vehicles and loads that exceed basic weight, height and length standards of the state.
State Standards for Oversize Permits
Each state may set its own standards for determining whether or not oversize permits are required. Often a load that exceeds a height of 13 feet, 6 inches, a width of 8 feet, 6 inches and a length of 80 feet is considered an oversized load. In such cases, you may not only need oversize permits, but also escort vehicles. Overweight permits may be required for loads that weigh over 80,000 pounds.
