Heavy haul trucking, also known as superload, oversize, overweight, or over dimensional trucking, focuses on delivering large loads that frequently require specialized trucks and trailers. These loads may include anything from industrial machinery to heavy farming equipment. Due to their size and weight, there are special regulations, requirements, and considerations that truckers need to take into account during transportation and delivery of heavy haul loads.
Carriers and owner operators can use load boards to ensure that their trucks are full and on the road as much as possible. The DAT Load Board for Truckers mobile app lets individual drivers find loads for their return trips, and our triangulation routing tool (TriHaul) lets you minimize deadhead and take advantage of nearby lanes for maximum profits.
