There is no universal definition for what is considered an oversize load. Oversize simply means larger than the standard freight size and weight restrictions. The definition of oversize can vary between carriers or based on road limitations like state laws or an area’s infrastructure.
In general, oversize freight is more than 8 ft. 6 in. (2.59 m) in width and 13 ft. 6 in. (4.11 m) in height. Because of its size and weight, oversize freight requires special logistics, including careful pre-planning and specialized equipment.
Oversize loads require specialized equipment. The best oversize load boards, like the DAT load board, let you specify your equipment when you post your truck or search through loads. That way you are only matched with oversize loads that require the equipment you already have. Some of the specialized equipment you can search and post on the DAT load board are:
