A load is considered heavy haul when its dimensions exceed the legal length, width, height, and/or weight of the state(s) through which the load is being shipped. This specialized transportation is also known as overweight, or over-dimensional (OD) freight. Depending on dimensions, weight, and routing of these oversized loads, purchase of special trip permits issued by states that the freight will be going through may be required.
It’s hard to say because rates depend on a wide variety of factors. But we can say for certain that heavy haul truck drivers do have the potential to make more than their non-heavy haul counterparts. If you’re looking to improve your ability to earn money, getting into heavy haul or oversize loads may be just the way to do that.
If power only trucking wasn’t profitable, then no one would do it. To be successful doing power only trucking, you want to make sure you have a load waiting for you so you’re not driving too far without one. That’s where power only trucking broker like American Freight comes into play. We connect drivers with loads and loads with drivers. If you’re having a hard time finding what you need, use the network of relationships our brokers have built up over the years to help you turn a profit.
Load boards are a popular way to go for the DIY trucker. Otherwise you will have to rely on your network. Having a power only trucking broker takes your network and extends it by a huge factor, meaning you don’t have to do it all on your own, and you have a better chance of getting a load wherever you go.
Reefer trucking usually pays more, as it costs more to operate a reefer unit and there is more care required from the drivers to make sure their loads arrive on-time and in good condition.
