Heavy Haulage Permits

Clients must obtain the appropriate permits and documentation before the shipment can take place. In most cases, individual shipments are issues for each shipment. In some cases, regulations may vary, and in some cases, municipalities or cities require specific permits. Likewise, some commodities also require designated permits.

One such example is Minnesota, which requires a permit for shipping heavy farming equipment, as well as a single permit, which remains valid for one week. Additional permits are required during winter, and a specific timeframe will be applicable. Travel hours are also restricted in many cities during certain hours nd on a seasonal basis. Cargolia consultants will discuss your shipment and our logistics team will inform you about the shipping duration, permits requirements and other information regarding your heavy haulage shipment.

Heavy Haulage Safety Regulations

Federal law requires that vehicles carrying oversized loads must have specific travel accommodations and must be marked using special signage. Some requirements may include:

  • Pilot cars: In some states, escort vehicles may have to accompany wide loads. Certain types of loads require a police escort.
  • Lights: Some states require that vehicles are equipped with yellow rotating LED lights.
  • Safety flags: Vehicles usually have to carry fluorescent red or yellow flags attached to the truck’s outermost corners.
  • Oversized Load banners: Any vehicle carrying the shipment or traveling with the shipment must be marked with front and rear banners. All our haulage contractors have reversible “oversized load” or “wide load”signs.
