Although there is currently a wide range of specialized semi-trailers that are able to transport almost everything, frequent limitations are those resulting from road infrastructure, i.e. roundabouts, bridges, high curbs, narrow roads. Hence, it is often used to mixed transport, such as by river or sea.
Preparation of oversized transport and oversized Haulage UK:
Due to its specificity, each oversized transport and oversized Haulage UK requires an individual approach to its preparation, so the best possible organization and plan of the entire project is particularly important. In the end, every possibility should be taken into account and every meter of the route should be analyzed so that nothing stands in the way during transport, as this may involve huge, additional costs, resulting, for example, from the need to change the route. We have already mentioned that it is necessary to submit an appropriate application in order to obtain a permit for oversized transport. In addition, it is necessary to prepare a plan of the entire route with an analysis of road infrastructure – narrow roads, roundabouts, hills and an analysis of traffic dynamics – both the transporting vehicle and the traffic on the route. For this reason, non-normative transport and oversized Haulage UK is very often carried out at night, as it reduces the risk of significant traffic disruptions. Appropriate planning of such transport requires the coherent action of many specialists in various fields. They must finally take care of every detail, taking into account even the weather conditions that may occur during the transport. Sometimes it is necessary to dismantle certain elements of road infrastructure, such as safety barriers or road signs. The load must be properly secured and marked, and usually it is also required to pilot the transport as oversized Haulage in UK.
