About WideloadShipping.com

Our mission statement:

At WideloadShipping.com, we believe there is a better way to deal with marketing. A more valuable, less invasive way where customers are earned rather than bought. We’re obsessively passionate about our little corner of the specialized trucking industry and our true mission is to inspire every individual or company operating in it. From the pilot cars to the owner operator, the client and the big trucking corporations. We consider ourselves as a little company that get’s big things done with a proved track record that reaches back over 30 years with 15 of them online. Our bottom line is we focus on providing awesome services for all parties involved and take it upon ourselves to inspire as well as motivate them. While oversize and heavy-haul trucking may be one of the least understood and least transparent aspects of the transportation industry we’re very enthusiastic about assisting each party involved in it. We’re excited to simplify the process of shipping big and heavy items via online communications, phone apps, education and our community.

“At WideloadShipping.com we’re excited about coming to work each day. Our jobs enable us to help others. What’s more rewarding than that?”

Experience, impact, imagination and individuality will always remain part of our core in effort to facilitate the growth of greater solutions for the efficiency of our industry. As a notation these are words of sales, they are the core of our true beliefs.

Our vibe:

  • Serving customers needs with a easy transparent way to quickly obtain multiple oversize and heavy-haul freight quotes (free) from specialized trucking companies that have available equipment. Clients range from simple flatbed shipments that are legal to over-dimensional or over-weight shipments ranging from wind towers and turbines, space ships doors, Boeing jets, transformers, water-jet systems, conveyor belts, tanks, MRI machines, military equipment, heavy equipment, machinery and the list goes on forever.
  • Serving oversize, wideload and heavy haul trucking companies by connecting them with direct freight dealing with the customer direct. When it comes down to it we’d prefer to see shippers dealing directly with carriers in this sector of transportation due to the difficulties and expertise required to move a single large item. With that being said in some circumstances transportation professionals will always be required so “brokering” is not completely frowned upon as long as the “broker” is a expert in logistics with express knowledge of shipping heavy haul and oversize.
  • Serving oversize and heavy-haul trucking companies by connecting them with the parties that require big or heavy items to be shipped. We provide them with access to the loadboard we operate that displays the shipments and details. We also operate a full on specialized carrier directory that features oversize and heavy-haul trucking companies exclusively. We should also add while we do allow freight brokers to use our system, when it comes down to it we’d prefer to see shippers dealing directly with carriers in our sector of the transportation industry due to the difficulties and expertise required to move a single large or heavy item. It is important to make certain the insurance requirements are completely met for any shipment travelling over the road but these should be “double-checked”. There’s also a huge issue in case there is any sort of insurance claim as if the customer does not pay for any reason what is to ensure the broker will pay the freight bill? Surely not a $50,000 bond as in many cases this isn’t enough to even put a dent in the final freight bill due. However, with that being said in some circumstances transportation professionals will always be required so “brokering” is not completely frowned upon as long as the “broker” is a expert in logistics with express knowledge of shipping heavy haul and oversize loads as well as has a long history in working with their customer.
  • Serving the pilot car industry. In many circumstances pilot cars are required by law to accompany some heavy-haul and a large percentage of “oversize” or “wideload” freight. Since we have professionals already here on the site dealing with each other daily it only makes good sense to include escort vehicles or “pilot cars”. We support this area of transportation with state of the art and cutting edge system called “PiloTrac” that offers features such as “live posting” of locations of pilot cars available for work rather than using traditional methods of alphabetical lists that show a companies “home base” location only. Specialized carriers can see the exact location of pilot car vehicles live on a map of North America.

 

At WideloadShipping.com while it’s true our experience comes at a price (yes experience takes time so we’re all middle aged) we like to think of ourselves and others as pretty hip folks. The truth is if you give anyone a chance you might just learn they may be much cooler than you ever perceived yourself as being. Hey, we make magic and we do it each and every day! We are constantly reinventing what is possible.

  • Serving customers with oversize and heavy haul freight quotes for trucking services of over-dimensional items such as equipment, machinery, tanks, etc.

Our basic services break down into 3 categories:

  1. Serving customers with oversize and heavy haul freight quotes for trucking services of over-dimensional items such as equipment, machinery, tanks, etc.

  2. Serving oversize, wideload and heavy haul trucking companies by connecting them with direct freight dealing with the customer direct. When it comes down to it we’d prefer to see shippers dealing directly with carriers in this sector of transportation due to the difficulties and expertise required to move a single large item.

This is not very economical and doesn’t make sense in this day and age.

How do we help customers ship heavy-haul and oversize loads and why?

Well, it all started a long time ago. Basically we had too many gigantic shipments and each one of them had financial liability written all over them. The main thing was understanding all of the rules and regulations involved in shipping over dimensional loads. Then after that was making sure you got paid. There’s so many spokes in this wheel it’s honestly a rabbit hole. That’s why we truly believe that the heavy-haul and over-dimensional shipping industry should be governed by law instead of self-regulated. There needs to be a cut-off point where brokers should not be able to participate in this sector of transportation. The liability is just too great and the federal government only requires broker to have a $50,000 dollar (US) bond. That amount barely covers the cost of required route surveys and permits for may shipments let alone all the other potential requirements such as bridge analysis, bucket trucks or pilot cars. There’s just too much money involved which brings liability. Of course the insurance companies do their jobs so that’s not even factored into this. So back in 2003 we realized that some sort of online trading system would be required to accommodate all of these shipments rather than us trying to get rich brokering them out. Our current business model allows the clients to post their shipments for free and the carriers to pay a modest fee of $40 per month if paid monthly. That connects the two parties together so they can start planning without a go-between slowing down the process and inflating the overall cost to transport these shipments.

A quick history synopsis.

WideloadShipping.com initially started as an idea to bring more direct customers to a single location rather than making outbound telephone calls in effort to find them. We knew tens of thousands of companies we’re searching for logistics coordinators that had the right equipment to heavy haul their oversize machinery and equipment, it was just a matter of locating them. So, in 2003 the domain name wideloadshipping.com was purchased and was relatively nothing other than an email form that asked you the name, dimensions and weights of the shipment you needed transported.
