What is Heavy Haul Trucking?
A load is considered heavy haul when its dimensions exceed the legal length, width, height and weight of the state(s) through which the load is being shipped. This is also knows as over-weight, or over-dimensional (OD) freight.

These specially designed flatbed trailers can carry most any size of over-dimensional freight that you’re shipping. Types of heavy haul flatbed trailers:
  • Double Drops
  • Extendable Trailers
  • Removable Goosenecks (RGN)
  • Lowboy Trailers
  • RGN-Stretch Trailers

Tractor and trailers combinations may be 5, 6, 7, 9, 10 and 13 axle.
