Oversize & Overweight Freight: By Definition
Oversize and overweight includes any commodity or shipment that exceeds weight, width, and/or height parameters that each State sets and regulates. This can include anything that is 102” and wider or 48K lbs and greater.
If the load is divisible, we separate them. For example: if a customer has two machines with a combined weight of 52k lbs, we'll put the first 25k-lb machine on one trailer and the second on another trailer.
