Abnormal and Oversized Haulage
What is an Abnormal Load?
Any piece of cargo that is too heavy, large or cumbersome to be transported safely in a standard shipping container is referred to as an abnormal load, or exceptional cargo. Given the size of abnormal loads, they require coordination between freight forwarders, police forces and other authorities when planning transport routes, in order to ensure that the cargo can travel safely from A to B.
