WHAT MAKES A LOAD OVER DIMENSIONAL?

ALL MACHINERY TRANSPORT GROUP OVER DIMENSIONAL LOAD TRANSPORT

An over dimensional load description varios from country to country but the constant characteristic of an over dimensional load is cargo that exceeds one or more of the designated limits of normal cargo or cargo that exceeds the designated limits of a trailer.

If your cargo meets all specifications but exceeds one limit, it will be considered an Over Dimensional Load.


Weight of an ODL - Over Dimensional Load

A haul in excess of 80,000 lbs (pounds), would be considered an Over Dimensional Load. 80,000 lbs is the designated weight limit of all machinery combined, truck, trailer and cargo, if the truck, the trailer and the cargo has a combined weight that exceeds 80,000 lbs it is an Over Dimensional Load.

Height of an ODL - Over Dimensional Load

A haul that exceeds the legal height limit of a specific city, state or country is considered an Over Dimensional Load and this varies between different countries but generally this height limit is 13 feet 6 inches from the ground. This means that the load can be no taller than 13.6 feet including the height of the trailer, if the trailer and cargo combined height exceeds 13 feet 6 inches, it is an Over Dimensional Load.

Length of an ODL - Over Dimensional Load

A haul that exceeds the legal transport limit of 53 feet in length, the longest legal trailer specification is considered an Over Dimensional Load. There are two (2) specific trailer lengths that are hauled by trucks, 48 feet and 53 feet, the load cannot be longer than either of these trailers, if a load exceeds 48 feet of a 48 foot trailer or 53 feet of a 53 foot trailer, the load is now an Over Dimensional Load.

Width of an ODL - Over Dimensional Load

A haul that exceeds the legal width limit of 8 feet 6 inches of a trailer is considered an Over Dimensional Load. Even if your haul is under the maximum requirements but does not meet the width maximum limit, it will be considered an Over Dimensional Load. If your haul is less than 80,000 lbs, less than 13.6 feet tall, less than 48 or 53 feet long but over 8 feet 6 inches wide, it is an Over Dimensional Load.
