Specialised Transport & Logistics for Oversized Truck Loads
Not all oversized loads need an escort vehicle, which means that you don’t need to worry if your load is less than 3.5 meters in width and 25.0 meters in length. Above these dimensions however, your load may need one or two pilot vehicles and in some cases, a police escort. There are also a lot of other rules and regulations that cover taking these big loads on our roads and quite a lot of research is also involved, before you hit the road. This is why it is always best to engage a company that specialises in transport & logistics for oversized truck loads, because all of the hard work is done for you and someone else has to worry about ticking all the boxes.
When companies try to go it alone and don’t bother hiring the professionals for the job, we see four very common mistakes being made with oversized loads. Namely, they don’t have an escort when they are legally required to do so, they don’t have any warning lights on the truck or display an oversize sign, and they do not adhere to the Queensland size restrictions for trucks on our roads. Forrest Logistics has been in this industry for many years and we project manage these big loads on our roads every day, it’s part of our job description!
So, if you want an expert to transport your oversized loads safely to their destination, anywhere in Australia, you can’t go wrong with giving the team at Forrest Logistics a call.
