What is oversized transportation?
In order to understand what oversized transportation is, it is necessary, first of all, to determine the terminology. And the main thing here is to understand what kind of cargo, in terms of legislation, is considered to be oversized (oversized). So, let's turn to Russian laws.
Oversized cargo is considered to be any cargo, the height of which together with the vehicle exceeds 4 m, width 2.25 m, and the length of 20 m.at the same time, non-compliance with the norms of at least one of the indicators makes the cargo oversized. For transportation of such objects on highways of the country it is necessary to take the corresponding permission in which experts will register the admissible route, speed of movement and other regulations and rules of following from point A to point B. At the same time, it may well be that your car can not move along the shortest path because of the presence of low bridges, sharp turns, sections of a narrow road. We'll have to go around, sometimes seriously increasing mileage.
Is it really impossible to avoid unnecessary bureaucratic delays? In most cases, indeed, it is possible. For this purpose, special transport is used, the purpose of which is transportation of goods with border dimensions. To understand how this scheme works, let's consider a few special cases. For example, it is necessary to transport a container with a height of 3 m.in itself, this cargo fits perfectly into the current norms, but if you put it on a standard container ship or an on-Board trailer, the total height of the limits will exceed. This means that the cargo becomes oversized and you need to go for permission. The output can be the use of a special low-frame trawl, the working area of which is at an altitude of 0.9 m from the ground. Consider: 3 m + 0.9 m = 3.9 m – dimensional cargo. This means that transportation can be carried out on a common basis.
The same calculation is valid for goods that have a length boundary value. Although the maximum permissible length of the goods together with the vehicle is 20 m, there are also restrictions on the so – called "overhang". This is part of the cargo, protruding beyond the dimensions of the vehicle. So, we have any cargo, length of 16-17m. In norm the length of a load perfectly, but if you put it on the standard car – the overhang will exceed the standards. And when using a special sliding semi-trailer, the cargo will be considered overall.
Of course, you should not expect that such transportation will be cheap. Of great importance is the cost of transport services and the involvement of highly qualified personnel. In any case, the choice of the method of transportation and the solution of bureaucratic problems is better to entrust the professionals who face them every day.
