What Is Heavy Haul Trucking?

Heavy haul trucking is the hauling of overweight, oversize or specialized shipments. Generally, shipping heavy equipment will require the use of step-decks, RGN’s or other specialized trailers that can haul over dimensional or overweight loads. Although federal government requires each state to set their own regulations for hauling heavy shipments, heavy haul is generally classified as cargo that exceeds:

  • Width of 8 feet
  • Height of 10 feet
  • Length of 27 to 100 feet
  • Gross weight of 30,000 + pounds
