Transportation of goods: Oversized cargo
Commercial delivery of oversized cargo because of its specificity is made into the category of labor-intensive services (non-standard dimensions of cargo, increased weight, shifted center of gravity, etc.). The provision of this service requires from logisticians not only many years of experience and professionalism, but also the availability of specific knowledge.
Features of motor transportation of oversized cargo
In order not to create obstacles and dangerous situations on the roads, each oversized cargo requires individual transportation conditions. So, for one it is necessary to select a special technique capable of withstanding a heavy weight and carrying out loading-unloading; for another cargo, you need to make a permit in the traffic police, reconcile the route so that the road surface does not suffer (and at the same time select the driver capable of ensuring the safety of the oversized cargo – it is the driver who must check the condition of the oversize, the integrity of the fasteners, and if necessary, be able to troubleshoot). If it is a question of large-sized cargoes exceeding the dimensions of a vehicle that protrude beyond the tailgate, or overlapping part of the main (agricultural machinery, excavators, bulldozers, equipment, etc.), then such cargoes need to be provided with reliable escort along the route.
