Over Dimensional Freight Services

Over-dimensional trucking is a freight service that is used to transport oversized shipping loads. Our freight forwarding service assists in the process by working closely with commercial trucking companies, clients, and government branches to ensure documents are verified and dimensions are defined.

There are many risks involved with transporting over-dimensional items by truck freight. These risks are amplified when shipping across the U.S/Canada border. As a premier Canadian freight forwarding service, we can mitigate these risks by connecting businesses with established over-dimensional trucking services to ensure a smooth delivery.

We help North American businesses source affordable domestic and cross-border freight options. Our team has established carrier relationships in Canada and the United States. We pair these relationships with decades of expertise in over-dimensional freight shipping to provide a world-class solution.

When is Over Dimensional Trucking Used?

Over dimensional freight effectively transports oversized shipments and wide-shaped products. Because of the nature of oversized loads, special care, equipment, and permits are needed to transport them.

Each province has unique size limits for shipping goods. Over dimensional freight services are required when goods exceed these limits. For instance, in British Columbia, oversized and overweight trucking permits are required for cargo that exceed any of the following size requirements:

  • Height of 13 ft (4.15 m)
  • Width of 8.5 ft (2.6 m)
  • Length of 48 ft (14.65 m) from kingpin to rear most portion
  • Weight of 20,062 lb. (9,100 kg) per axle

Overseas Container Logistics knows the size criteria for each province and state. Our freight-forwarding service works with the elected customs broker to facilitate a smooth process and simplify complex rules and regulations.
