Superload TX to AL

Monday, July 20th, 2009

More thoughts on super load movements throughout the United States, not every movement can be hauled by truck. You may have to explore other options in these movements. Recently I was asked to quote a super load from Texas to Alabama at the width of 23 feet. Alabama will not issue a super load for width past 18 feet. They will allow for short haul movements.

I will now have to explore my other options. At this point we have two options by rail or by barge. I will have to determine which will be more cost effective and the shortest transit time. As soon as I get this determined I will post with the results.

Superloads

Monday, July 20th, 2009

Before quoting super loads there a few things to keep in mind and also remind your customer that it will take a few days to a week to quote. Here are a few factors to keep in mind.

1. Each state varies in their super load requirements. For instance, if it is a super load in Missouri it may not be a super load in Texas.

2. To obtain a super load permit it will vary from state to state, but usually it will take 8 to 12 weeks to get a permit.

3. All super loads will go into bridges or engineering for each state. In bridges/engineering they will evaluate the best possible route for the load to travel.

4. Once approved you will have a permit.
