Transportation of out-of-gauge and hazardous cargo

Oct 08 2015

Transportation of out-of-gauge and hazardous cargo means the transportation of non-standard goods: very long, very big, very wide, etc. The difficulty of such good securing is specific to their transportation. Moreover, this cargo is often non-demountable. The out-of-gauge cargo is often transported by cars with drop frames, large trailers or special equipment for oversize cargo transportation.

Many different obstacles, for instance low power lines and bridges, unsafe parts of road, poor condition of roads, etc. can be encountered during the transportation. However, the forwarding company has to settle these issues before arranging the transportation of out-of-gauge cargo. Many problems can be settled by choosing a right route and making up a detailed schedule of out-of-gauge cargo transportation. It is worth keeping in mind that preparation of documents is required for out-of-gauge cargo transportation and this process takes a week or some months depending on the degree of cargo bulkiness and route.

The cargo carriage is seldom connected to transportation of hazardous cargo. There are cargo hazard classes up to 9 ADR. The conditions of such cargo transportation require special safety measures and extreme care during the loading and transportation. The failure to comply with the requirements set can create situations hazardous for a big number of people and for the ecological state of many areas.
