Arranging transporting of oversized and extra heavy loads
is one of the most difficult types of truck transportation making demands for each work step. Exactness of transportation request by a customer is not less important in this case than driver’s experience, for who a customer trusts heavy and expensive goods. Even a small imprecision of indicated cargo sizes can be damage reason, than a mistake of driver, who is unable to rate the right turning radius. Because of special difficultness, peculiarity of every task, high risk degree and tremendous mistake price, the oversized and heavy cargo transportation is a separate branch of truck transportation. Only a few freight forwarding companies in Ukraine, including «INSHI MEREZHI» LLC, have their own truck fleet with specialized vehicles and can offer a customer a full service range for oversized cargo transportation at the territory of our country and abroad.
Types of Goods
Heavy cargoes can be large-size cargoes, but not always large-size cargoes are heavy cargoes. Agricultural equipment transportation and passenger vehicle transportation are also a separate type of services offering by forwarding companies. Depending on supposed type of cargo, you can get to know about the transportation details at corresponding section of our web-site.
Our main activity is oversized and heavy cargo transportation, and for this task experts of the company «INSHI MEREZHI», LLC elaborate project for non-standard cargo transportation, make route, receive all necessary documents and actually transport. We can render other attendant services at customers will, for example, such as cargo support by cover vehicles, security while transporting and etc.
Specific characters of oversized cargo
Oversized cargo is cargo with length, width or height which exceed acceptable standard sizes while transportation.
However, even within one transport type (truck, in our case) there is no general notion what oversized cargo means and this procedure depends on possibilities of transport vehicle and route peculiarities.
According to the existing norms in certain European countries, the standard sizes of the truck train are 16.5 х 2.5 х 4.0 m = 38.0 ton. Any size deviations can require a special approach for transportation management: obtaining special permissions, cargo support by cover vehicles, roadway and communication development.
For example, in France there are no strong restrictions in height, but there are width restrictions of 3 m on autobahns for cargoes transported without obtaining any special permission.
There is one decision - to make route by-passing autobahns, but with obligatory cover, which requires considerable amount of money.
In Germany a critical height is 4.50 m, and each centimeter is counted. Even if a cargo is longer than 5 cm, it is necessary a long time, up to 3 months, to obtain permission. In consequence of this transportation route can be increased by hundred of kilometers. There is probability that this route will run across foreign countries and it will be necessary to obtain special permissions and agreements and because of this fact the cost will be increased several times, considering downtime of transport vehicle.
Also it is necessary to take into consideration cargo weight and corresponding requirements for transport vehicle management, especially in Ukraine and other CIS countries where main traffic bridges and overpasses were built in the 1960-s, and even the most durable bridges are not designed for cargo with weight above 80.0 ton.
All specific characters of cargo transportation in all countries cannot be described even in a considerable reference book; of course, they cannot be explained in some paragraphs. However, working experience accumulated by our company during 10 years at the market is assurance that your non-standard cargo will be delivered in time and without any damages from A point to B point.
Do not look for prices at our site – there are no prices here. Working with oversized cargoes, there are no unimportant details, and every detail can influence on target price. Any oversized or heavy cargo transportation requires an individual approach, so only after request with indicating of cargo size, cargo weight, loading-unloading point, necessary services for a customer and other obligatory characteristics, our experts will be able to offer you the most profitable transportation conditions at the most acceptable prices.
We can guarantee that transportation costs optimization is our priority task. For example, in 2009 our company received customs carrier permission and owing to this fact, transportation cost under customs control for our customers is considerably reduced.
For the same purpose, in order to transport agricultural and construction equipment we use special types of drop-frame semitrailers with special socket for wheels of transported vehicle which allow avoiding standard excess of height and owing to this fact to save the customer’s money.

Frequently Asked Questions
I need to transport non-standard cargo
Of course, you can consult with our specialists by phone or arrange a personal meeting and come in our office. There is another alternative - to ask interesting questions by means of the form at our web-site or by e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. We will answer any questions concerning the management of heavy cargo transportation and effective normative documents (see also the section «Documents» at our web-site).
How do I calculate the cost of oversized heavy cargoes transportation?
Calculation is made particularly for each case, so there are no companies having a deal with oversized cargo transportation which have a standard price-list with ton cost for kilometre.
The cost for large-sized (heavy) cargo transportation is calculated based on transportation cost, permission documents and, if necessary, - support costs (cover, transport of State Auto Inspection).
Depending on the size of the cargo, the specialized rolling stock is selected, traffic road is chosen, and cost of permission documents is calculated. Of course, we offer the cheapest way of transportation for a customer selecting a specialized trawl, depending on cargo weight and its size. For example, to transport cargo with a height of 3, 0 m it is necessary to to use the semitrailer with loading height of 1,4 m, truck train is not suitable in accordance with approved sizes, if to use drop-frame semitrailer up to 1,0 m, special permissions will be required .
The possibility of transportation fulfillment (not all cargoes can be delivered at a particular place, there are insuperable obstacles) depends on the route, and also the quantity and cost of special permissions. If a customer asks us to transport cargo with a width of 6,0 m and a height 8,0 m - we answer immediately: it is impossible, it is necessary to disassemble.
In any cases we fairly answer that it is unprofitable for a customer to order transportation under real reasons: vehicle giving needs money, so cargo transportation from Odessa region to Nikolaev region is cheaper using services of local carriers.
Concerning difficult international transportations, many things depend on presence of permissions of those countries through which the traffic route will be laid.
As we do not have right to change service cost after announcement to the customer, so calculation demands certain time.
How much time does it take to receive permissions?
It can take two months, and in some cases and half a year ... For example, the French permission takes 40 days, Belgian - 45, German - from 5 working days to two weeks. It is all according what and where you are going to transport. To reduce this term we have almost for all vehicles so called one-year European permissions which allows cargo transporting without additional permissions for cargo transportation which corresponds to the definite sizes. However, it is all according what the cargo sizes and transportation route are.
How much does it cost?
The cost for obtaining permission is an estimated value which depends on the transport vehicle and route.
Depending on the transportation distance and real excess of acceptable weight and (or) axial loadings, the compensation is charged for road clothes and artificial constructions damage. For excess of acceptable sizes the road organizations, which services general using highways, also collect payment, but not everywhere there is this payment.
Mainly, cargo size overriding has an influence on cost of permission registration across population centre. And this fact demands necessity of carrying out special actions for the vehicle admission under transmission line.
The services cost of the matching organizations can be added also permission cost.
Is it possible to obtain permission at your office?
Yes, of course, we can receive the necessary permissions for you. Moreover, as separate service we also offer drawing up of the project of transportation with search of a route for non-standard cargoes and receiving necessary conclusions at the organizations authorized for carrying out routes inspection. Further, having the project, you can choose whichever carrier offers the optimum price for you.
What advantages does road transportation?
Every type of transportation has its own advantages, but road transportation has wider opportunities in comparison with the railway transportation in many cases for oversized heavy cargoes transportation. Restrictions of motor transport on weight of transported cargo are more considerable in comparison with other types of transport that is connected, first of all, with restrictions on artificial road constructions (in particular, bridges).
However, specificity of motor transport and its roads allows to apply the whole system of means for restrictions expansion - for example, time detours or road, bridge reconstruction, local roadway strengthening, various technologies of cargo transportation on an artificial construction, for example with uncoupling of a hauler and "dragging" cargo semitrailer etc.
Another considerable advantage of road transportation is the opportunity to deliver cargo as much as possible closer to an unloading place whereas the railway transportation more often demands additional cargo transportation from the railroad track to a final point by the same motor transport. And this is incurs additional expenses.
