June updates on regulations information.

June updates on regulations and information, volume, production.

We hope that you are reaping the rewards of our 14+ years of industry service. We’re asking for your input on our regulations pages but more on that below. As you know freight volumes are up and increasing so it’s always a wise idea to follow the loadboard for your next direct customer. If you happen to be busy or stuck on the road and prefer to monitor your loadboard account via Apple or Android phone it’s pretty easy to install the APP via iTunes or Google Play – just search the term “WideloadShipping.com” and install it to your device.

Regulations updates and user comments

The main reason we are sending this quick note however is to let you know the Rules and Regulations pages have been updated for 2018 and we’re averaging around 1400 visitors on these pages 24 hours a day. With this much web traffic depending on our data we’d like to ask anyone viewing them that may have additional information to add please do so by using the quick comment form at the bottom of each page. You can add comments in a single click from any computer or device. We value and appreciate your valuable input and comments on these pages as it give our viewers (and us) more information. While the regulations have a lot of information there is constantly updates and more info you may wish to see featured.


Banner advertising information

Another opportunity we’d like to offer you is the ability to advertise on these pages. Our standard fee due to the amount of exposure you’ll get is $240 a month for a basic banner ad (this is about 90% cheaper than Google Adsense). However, for those interested in placing banner ads we’re having a sale this week for 40% off. That’s correct! We’ll place your banner ad on each of the State/Province oversize and heavy haul regulations for $144 a month. So if you’re currently running an ad campaign or thinking about it now is a real good time to implement it as our web traffic will be at its highest (14+ years online tells us so) until the beginning of the New Year. We offer full support and can even show you how to create your own customer banner (.gif file or moving images on it) for free. Just send a note and we’ll set you up. Our directory of carriers is wise and affordable as well (create account).

Silver investing a production volumes?

Web traffic isn’t the only thing that is up these days, so are freight volumes. We sure hope you’re getting your getting a nice slice of that! While we’re all catching up on maintenance and bills from the winter consider this do your absolute best to save money. While advertising in the right place will probably earn you more money do it wisely. Also, while we’re not investment strategists and have never proclaimed to be investing in silver seems to be a good idea. Here’s a decent page to follow for more information on investing in silver. Also, if you want a good source for purchasing it (it’s affordable) we highly suggest using the Bullion Vault to make purchases as they have spot prices and are reliable world wide. Why silver? Well, technology is advancing at a very high rate daily. So is production. While gold is great silver prices are not only affordable (as low as $16.42 per ounce on 06/12/18) but there’s a production shortage as mines are producing less). So, this is only what we consider a safe option. In no way are we conveying to you we are professional precious metal speculators.

Silver bullion.

Investing in silver is affordable and more than likely a very good idea. Production volumes are down and demand is increasing daily.

The main purpose of this post however is to remind you all just how much a quick comment at the bottom of our regulations pages helps others. We thank you for your input! Let us know if there’s anything we can do to make our service better for you.

Safe travels and in the kind words of Joe Overlease “don’t take cheap freight”!

2018 British Columbia shipping regulations

2018 British Columbia shipping regulations

2018 British Columbia DOT shipping regulations. Laws, regulations, rules and limitations for oversize/heavy-haul trucking in the Province of British Columbia.

British Columbia DOT regulations for oversize shipping.

British Columbia. The official Coat of Arms.

Please share your knowledge with our other visitors below.

Heavy-haul trucking & pilot car directory.
Locate trucking companies and pilot cars in British Columbia:

Legal load limits.
British Columbia legal load limits:

Length:  14.65 meters (48.06′) from the kingpin to the rear most portion of the trailer. No combinations in length over 23 meters (75.45′) overall without a permit. A 53 foot semi-trailer is allowed provided the lift axle is raised.
Width: No shipment may travel if in excess of 2.6 meters in width (without a permit) unless it is a shipment of hay which is limited to 3.1 meters (122″) or rear view mirrors which are limited to 30 cm (11.81 inches)on each side, additional auxiliary devices are allowed 30 cm (11.81 inches) and tires are allowed an additional 10 cm.
Height: No shipment may travel if larger than 4.15 meters (163″) in height without a permit.
Weight: Single axle: 9,100 kg (20,062 lbs) and the same for tandem and tridum axles. A tridem pole trailer: gross weight on any two adjacent axles in a tridum axle group must not exceed 17,000 kg (37,478 lbs). The maximum licensed gross vehicle weight of a vehicle or combination of vehicles must not exceed 63,500 kg* (139,994 lbs) without a permit (see; en B.C Regulation 95/2006, s. 3.)* THIS AMOUNT SEEMS EXCESSIVE. THIS IS THE NUMBER OUR RESEARCH PRODUCED. See; reference link below in “notes” under “maximum gross weight”.
Notes: Not matter what a permit states if there is a sign posted on a highway or road that contradicts your permit the sign will take precedence over the permit so you must immediately stop traveling and get clarification. Section reference: Copyright Queens Printer Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.
Overhang: 1m in front and .061 – which seems a little odd to us as the rear maximum seems short. Please contact the BC DOT to verify.

Routine trucking permits.
Oversize and overweight trucking permits that are routinely issued by the British Columbia DOT routinely:

Length: 27.5 meters (90 feet, 2 and 43/64 fourths on an inch) in the maximum length for a routine permit in B. C.
Width: 4.4 meters (14 feet, 5 and 15/64 fourths of an inch) is the maximum with you will get from BC DOT on a routine permit.
Height: There is no number provided. The British Columbia DOT permit office wants to assess every load that is over height based on intended routing.
Weight: This is the same as height. They will not give you a solid number for routine. We are going to suggest 63,500 kg (134,994 lbs) since we had trouble locating what we feel was a reasonable maximum limit above for “legal loads limits”. we sure welcome your comments below.
Overhang: 6.5 meters (21 feet, 3 and 29/32 seconds of an inch) for routine permits for overhang.

NOTES: If your shipment is oversize AND overweight you will be required to have two separate permits. Oversize loads are required to have safety flags no less than 16″ x 16″ (46.64 cm) square and be red in color.

Superload information- extraordinary loads.
British Columbia superload information:

Superloads in British Columbia or “extraordinary loads” are defined by the DOT any shipment that is in excess of 85,000 kilograms GVW in weight, 4.4 meters (14 feet, 5 and 15/64ths of an inch) in width, 4.88 meters (16 feet and 1/8th inches) in overall height. Depending on your route you may not be classified as a “Superload” as the British Columbia DOT has  pre-approved designated routes. You can find more (limited) information on super or extraordinary loads here.

Permitted travel times & restrictions.
British Columbia DOT travel times and restrictions for oversize and overweight trucking:

The rule of daylight is defined as 1/2 hour before sunrise to 1/2 hour after sunset in B. C. No travel is allowed after 2 PM on Friday until 12:01 AM on Monday for any load in excess of 3.8 meters (12′ 6″) in width. If your shipment is over 3.5 meters (11′ 6″) in width you are only allowed to travel during daylight hours only with the exception of the Peace River region. For holiday travel restrictions you may not travel after 2 PM on the day before the holiday and after 12:01 on the day after the holiday. Holidays are New Years day, Provincial day, Good Friday, Victoria day, Canada day, Family day, Labour day, Thanksgiving day, Remembrance day, Christmas day and Boxing day.

When pilot cars are required.
British Columbia DOT requires a pilot car (escort vehicle) to accompany your shipment if you are in excess of any of the following dimensions or weights:

Length: For shipments in excess of 27.5 meters (90′) in length you will be required to have 1 rear pilot car (escort vehicle) on all roads. For shipments over 27.5 meters (90′) in length 1 front pilot car/escort and 1 rear pilot car/escort is required.
Width: Shipments in excess of 3.5 meters (11′ 6″) wide you will be required to have 1 front pilot car on two lane roads or 1 rear pilot car/escort on multiple lane roads. In some cases a beacon light may be substituted. In many cases night travel is granted at 304.8 cm (10′ wide). If granted night travel you may be required to have 1 pilot car/escort in the front if your shipment is over 3.2 meters (10′ 5 and 63/64 fourths of an inch”) in width. Shipments that are over 3.5 meters (11′ 5 and 51/64 fourths of an inch”) wide up to 4.4 meters (14′ 5 and 15/64 fourths of an inch) require 1 front pilot car/escort vehicle. Shipments that are over 3.5 meters (11′ 5 and 51/64 fourths of an inch”) wide are permitted to travel at night only.
Height: Depending on your route the BC DOT permit office will determine if you are required to have a pilot car/escort vehicle.
Weight: Weight is on a case by case basis. As long as your shipment can maintain the minimum required speed limit you will probably not be required to have a pilot car/escort by the British Columbia DOT permits office.
Overhang: If you are have more than 6.5 meters (21′ 3 and 29/32 seconds of an inch) of overhang you will be required to have 1 rear pilot car/escort.

Arizona State Shipping Regulations

2018 Arizona state shipping laws, regulations, rules and limitations for oversize and overweight trucking on state highways and roads.

Arizona

The great state of Arizona official seal.

Please share your expertise or knowledge of Arizona state trucking regulations with other visitors below.

As per the state of Arizona please read the following:

“The Arizona Department of Transportation in cooperation with state representatives, industry, the Department of Public Safety  and local law enforcement personnel work in collaboration to update and amend oversize and overweight special permit rules containing special permit requirements, restrictions and allowances for transporting oversize and overweight vehicles and loads on highways under the jurisdiction of the Department. This is a council established in statute and makes up the Over-dimensional Permit Council.

These rules detail the eligibility, application and use requirements for a variety of permits the Department currently issues to commercial motor carriers for transporting vehicles or vehicle and load combinations exceeding the maximum size or weight limitations provided by statute.

Each special permit provided by the Department under these rules is specifically authorized by statute.  The oversize and overweight special permits issued under these rules are that each permittee issued a particular class of permit is subject to the same activities, practices, requirements and restrictions applicable to that permit type. The statutes additionally provide authority for issuance, conditions, restrictions, approvals and fees.”

All laws, regulations, rules and limitations are now set fourth in:  A.A.C. R17-06: Oversize and Overweight Special Permits “Administrative Rules”

Legal load limits within the state of Arizona.
Legal load limits:

Length: Anything over 65’ qualifies as a over length load on non-designated highways.
Overhang: 3’ front or 6’ rear (make sure your route is approved for overhang this far as there are location variations).
Weight: GVW 80,000 lbs., 12,000 lbs on steer axle.
Width: 8’ 6” wide.
Height: 14’ on Interstate; 13’ 6” height on secondary roads.

Routine heavy haul and oversize trucking permits in Arizona.
Routine trucking permit limits:

Length: 120’
Overhang:  3’ front or 6’ rear
Weight:  250,000 maximum (Class C if over or see superloads). Single axle; 28,000 lbs, tandem axles, tridum axles, and quadem axles. Depends upon the axle spacings and tire size. Trunnion: 60,000. Gross Weight: 5 Axles – 104,000; 6 Axles – 108,000; 7 Axles 117,000. The weights depend upon the number of tires combined with the overall distance between each of the axles. Spacings on axles are tricky in this state. The Arizona DOT permits office will consider a number or factors but primarily bridges. If weights are excessive and trailer capabilities are even close to short of maxing out forget it. Pavement structural and stress testing and results will govern your overall capabilities.
Width: 14’
Height: 16

Note maximum speed is set at 55 mph for all oversize/overweight shipments.

If a shipment exceeds any of the following it is classified as a superload and will require a class C permit. 120′ in length, 14′ in width, 16′ in height or 250,000 pounds in weight.

Applications for class C permits should ideally be submitted via the ADOT ePRO System.  They do have other options but we strongly suggest you use the method they prefer. While it’s not a 100% guarantee you can usually get a Class C permit in 48 hours (excluding evenings, weekends and state holidays). Once it is approved you will see pending/approved/refused when you log in. The fee is $30 for class C shipments that are no greater than 18 feet in height and/or width and 80,000 pounds. Shipments that are over 80,000 pounds are $90. Shipments that are over 18 feet in height and width, but not over 80,000 pounds, are $40. For shipments that are greater than 18 feet in height and width and/or 80,000 pounds are $100.  Typical class C permits are only valid for 4 working days unless otherwise specified. In order to obtain a class C permit extension beyond the 4 day working allowance you must either have inclement weather issues or equipment breakdown issues.

Class C Permits are valid on state and interstate highways only. Transporters must check with local jurisdictions for authorization to travel on roadways that are not under ADOT jurisdiction. When submitting an application include a note in the comment field on the ADOT ePRO payment screen if requesting 3 a.m. or weekend movement for loads up to 16 feet wide and 16 feet high. The entire route must be designated for night movement, weekend movement or both or it will be denied.

Engineering analysis fees. A base fee of $125 per 50-mile increment is charged on shipments that do not meet Arizona Administrative Code R17-6-411, Tables 3.01 through 3.09. Prior to issuance of a permit, all analysis fees must be paid online or sent by mail. Engineering analysis fees must be received by the Class C Permits Office prior to any engineering analysis is performed. Shipments that are in excess of 250,000 lbs over axle weight, or in excess of the posted bridge weights are analyzed by the ADOT Bridge Preservation Services. “Engineering analysis may take up to two weeks. Certified weights are required. Failure to provide the correct weights may require a second analysis to be performed by the ADOT Bridge Preservation Services and will incur a new analysis fee”.

Once issued, if your Class C Permit requires you to obtain law enforcement escorts, you may use your EZ Pay account to pay for Department of Public Safety (DPS) Escorts. To create an EZ Pay account, contact a Service Arizona Business Coordinator at 602.712.4039, or email to address above. To schedule law enforcement escorts after you have been issued a Arizona class C permit, contact the DPS Escort Scheduler at 602.223.2855.

For mobile home shipments:

The requirements for an “Easy” C  Mobile Home Permit are similar to those for a regular Class C permit except the “Easy” C permit does not require a bridge-engineering analysis and is issued only to vehicles that do not exceed all of the following weight and size dimensions:

  • 16 feet wide
  • 16 feet high
  • 120 feet in overall length (vehicle and load combination length)
  • 80,000 pounds combined gross vehicle weight rating
  • Within statutory axle group weight limits

“Easy” C Mobile Home Permits can be requested and issued through ADOT ePRO. “Easy” Class C Mobile Home Permits are only valid on ADOT roadways. Transporters must check with local jurisdictions for permission to travel on roadways that are not under ADOT jurisdiction.

Once you are issued a “Easy” C permit if you are required to have police escorts use the above payment method to submit your payment. You will be required to pay for police escorts in advance.

Travel time restrictions for heavy haul and oversize trucking in Arizona.
Permitted travel times and restrictions in Arizona:

The one half hour before sunrise to one half hour after sunset rule applies.  Travel on weekends and holidays is permitted. Some loads will NOT be able to travel on weekends, please refer to the documentation on your permit to verify.  If overweight only you will probably be allowed continuous travel. Under 10′ of overhang, 10′ in width or 14′ in height will more than likely be granted continuous travel.

Superload information.
The following would qualify a shipment as a superload in the state of Alabama:

Defined as shipments in excess of any of the following dimensions/weights; over 250,000 lbs in gross weight, over 16’in width, over 16′ in height, over 150′ long. Anything of this nature will require special ALDOT approval. Detailed drawings will be required and need to include shop drawings of the item being shipped, the truck and trailer axle weights and spacings for both truck tractor and trailer. A letter from the manufacturer is required certifying the shipment is reduced to the lowest possible size and weight configuration as well as an explanation of why it can not be shipped by other means such as by barge or port. Loads exceeding 150,000 lbs. are subject to a full scale structural bridge analysis if bridges are in the route. A special weight authorization (SWA) is required from the permit office to initiate the necessary bridge rating section investigation as well. Night travel (9pm – 6am) may be required with a state trooper or police escort (minimum of 2 when travelling). A route survey will probably be required. The Alabama State Troopers Association handles all of the scheduling of police/trooper escorts after your superload permit has been issued. A lighting system configured from strobe warning lights must be placed on each extremity of the shipment in addition to basic requirements such as flags and oversize load signs. All rail road crossings must be identified and railroad must be notified in advance of your intent to cross as well as date and time. ALDOT will more than likely verify this with the railroad and not issue a superload permit until verified. It is the carriers responsibility to notify the railroad of each intended crossing. At each rail crossing you will find a small plaque with a phone number and a “crossing number” that identifies each crossing for submitting cross requests. A bucket truck is required to accompany loads that exceed 16′ 5″ in height and it is the carriers responsibility to show proof of “utility notification” for shipments in excess of 16′ 6″ in height. City or county approval is required for Alabama superloads as well, please see the Alabama list of county engineers for contact details. Superload requirements by the ALDOT can be read here.

Trucking Season Starts

Let’s get the trucking season started.

As you are aware the weather is finally starting to clear up in the Northern states. Frost laws will again be completely lifted and we will move towards being in full swing again for another season. With consumer confidence comes more spending which in turn brings on more production which means you will all be busy and possibly even exceed your capabilities. Each year at this time we send out this reminder followed by reports on industry volumes, customer behavior and other news that is important to any company in the oversize and heavy haul trucking industry. Some of them you may like and others may bore you but for the benefit of your business we do suggest you read them all as more information is better than not enough. We will do our best to keep our communications brief and to the point.

Heavy haul loads.

Here are some key reminders for this time of the year:

• Fully inspect your truck/escort/pilot vehicle, tires, lights, gauges, etc to ensure everything is working in tip top shape.
• Be sure to inspect all of your radios and safety equipment making certain all signal flares and fire extinguishers are up to date.
• Drivers should prepare themselves mentally too. Remember first to protect the motorists, not the load. The load is insured. Things like erratic driving or hand signaling will only confuse a motorist and possibly provoke road rage creating potential for an accident. If a motorists does ever get in between a pilot car and the load whoever see’s it first needs to make everyone else aware, especially the driver of the truck. More than likely he will decide to slow the truck down and that problem will quickly resolve itself pretty quick.
• Driver nutrition. We be writing more about driver nutrition as the season continues but remember you’re whole outfit isn’t much without you. That means you have to take good care of yourself and truck stops and roadside diners aren’t notorious for being too concerned about much more than taste – some even lacking that!

Pilot car truck in lead position.

Finally, while being on the newsletter list is free we must charge a small fee to be in our different directories (heavy haul, oversize trucking companies and pilot car companies) that is as low as $4.16 a month. If you are in it, get your listing spruced up. Add more information about your company and the exact services you provide, upload new/additional photos. Each year we send a huge percentage of our million plus per month visitors to our heavy haul and oversize shippers directory as well as PiloTrac. Customers who wish to use this option can easily locate you as well as trucking company fleet managers, dispatchers, owner operators, etc can easily locate pilot cars via PiloTrac. No matter what service our viewers are looking for it’s much easier to locate a service provider by clicking on a map than it is trying to mine web data by doing search engine searches and sifting through the millions of results.  We’ve been doing this online since 2003 so have a pretty decent idea of what we’re doing.

PiloTrac is a live pilot car system and FREE for carriers.

Pilot cars of the future.

PiloTrac

That’s right! PiloTrac saves oversize trucking companies valuable time and money. As you can see on the map above pilot car locations are posted exactly where are right now as well as where they will be in the future. What this does in enables trucking companies to see where they are located when it comes time to them needing one. In the past this wasn’t anywhere close to the efficiency of the PiloTrac system. Trucking companies resulted to a network of pilot car companies that at times would have to send a pilot car from hundreds of miles a way in order to meet the needs of the carrier. This resulted in millions of miles wasted every year due to the lack of communication that the PiloTrac system offers.

To see dates in the future simply click the date on the calendar on the lower right hand side below the map. It’s that easy! Click on any desired pin and their contact information is displayed. Visit PiloTrac now and discover how much easier you company can operate.
