Legal load limits.

Alberta DOT legal load limits:

Length: The overall maximum length allowed in Alberta without a permit is 23 meters (75′ 3″).
Width: The maximum width allowed is 2.6 meters (8′ 6″‘).
Height: The maximum height allowed in Alberta is 4.15 meters 13′ 7″.
Weight: 6,000 kg maximum on steer axle. Tandem axles: 17,000 kg. Tridum axels is 17,000 kilograms (37,478.6 lbs) as well. All axle weights are subject to the size of the tire.
Overhang: We have no information on allowable overhang in Alberta. Please share your knowledge with others below.
Notes:

* Super single tires require “New Generation, Wide Base” tires with a minimum tire width of 445 mm. Available by permit only. Super single tires do not apply to the steering axle.
** These weights for tridem axles apply to provincial highways only. The maximum weight for a tridem axle on a municipal road is 17,000 kg. Permits may be available to achieve heavier weights.
*** All axle weights are subject to minimum tire size. The maximum weight per tire shall not exceed the lesser of the tire manufacturer’s weight rating or the width of the tire stamped on the sidewall multiplied by 10 kg/mm.

Routine trucking permits.

Oversize and overweight trucking permits that are routinely issued by the Alberta DOT:

Length: 52 meters (170′ 8″) is about the maximum length you can get by with on a routine permit.
Width: 14′ 7″ wide depending on routing  for routine trucking permits.
Height: 5.3 meters (17′ 5″) in height is the cut off point for routine permits of course contingent on routing.
Weight: Weight is where you run into a problem. Alberta wants to know every single detail down to the size of tire you are running. Routing being a huge issue we can’t state a “routine” weight as it all depends on your axle spacings, combinations and tire sizes. Just for a safe number we’re going to say a routine permit caps out at 43,359.2 kilograms (100,000 lbs).
Overhang: 6.09 meters is about the most you can get on routine depending on routing.

Superload information.

Alberta superload information:

The maximum width normally allowed is 7.32 meters (24′) so anything over this width is a superload. We are researching information pertaining to shipping superloads in the province of Alberta Canada. If you happen to have expertise or knowledge of trucking superloads in this province please share your information for our other viewers below. Thank you.

Permitted travel times & restrictions.

Alberta DOT travel times and restrictions for oversize and overweight trucking:

The rule of 1/2 hour before sunrise until one full hour after sunset is observed in Alberta. Travel is allowed on Fridays until 3pm in the afternoon for loads that exceed 3.85 meters in width (12′ 7″) (WE WILL NEED TO DOUBLE CHECK THIS AS IT WAS LEFT AS A CORRECTION COMMENT BELOW). Travel is otherwise allowed and unrestricted on Saturdays unless stated on your permit.  Night travel is permitted for loads that are over length as long as you have 1 rear pilot car/escort vehicle and are on multiple lane roads. If your shipment is no longer than of 42 meters (137′ 10″) on a single lane road you will be required to have1 front pilot car/escort vehicle and 1 rear pilot car/escort vehicle. Weekend travel is permitted for loads that are over length only. If your shipment is in excess of 4.45 meters (14′ 7″) in width you will be permitted to travel only during daylight hours. If over 3.85 meters (12′ 7″) in width you may not travel on Sundays. There is not travel permitted on the following holidays: New Years day, Provincial day, Good Friday, Victoria day, Canada day, Family day, Labour day, Thanksgiving day, Remembrance day, Christmas day and on Boxing day.

Adverse weather conditions: If adverse weather conditions are reported you may not proceed with your shipment and are required to remain where ever you are. If adverse weather conditions interrupt your shipment you are required to pull over at the nearest suitable location even if it is on the side of the road unless you are over width. Over width loads must continue until they are able to completely turn off of the road and remain until adverse weather conditions stop. If your shipment is over 4.45 meters (14′ 7″) in width or 5.32 meters (17′ 5″) in height you are not permitted to travel with snow or fog visibility less than 150 meters (492′), if the road is covered with snow or ice or sleet or any other conditions that may effect the driver from proceeding with the absolute safety in mind first and foremost.

Frost laws: Alberta does have frost laws but when they are in effect changes every year based on testing with a heat flow model that measures to 30 cm below the surface. So, if you are shipping during the spring months you will need to call the number below for the exact frost law restriction dates. There are exemptions which include milk and bread trucks, farm machinery, water, fuel, fertilizer, mail and buses.

When pilot cars are required.

If your shipment is in excess of any of the following you will be required to have a pilot car escort you:

Length: If your shipment is in excess of 34 meters (111′) in overall length you are required to have 1 rear pilot car on single lane roads. For shipments in excess of 38 meters (124′ 8″) you are required to have 1 front pilot car/escort and 1 rear pilot car/escort.
Width: If your shipment is in excess of 3.85 meters (12′ 7″) wide you are required to have 1 front pilot car/escort on a single lane road or one rear pilot car/escort on multiple lane roads. For shipments over 4.45 meters (14′ 7″) wide require 1 front pilot car/escort and 1 rear pilot car/escort on single lane roads. If your shipment is in excess of 5.5 meters (18′) you are required to have 1 front and 1 rear pilot car/escort vehicle on all roads.
Height: Alberta does not normally use pilot cars with high poles as they have designated routes for shipments that are over height. You can view the routes on the Alberta DOT high load corridor page located here.
Weight: 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 Alberta DOT.
Overhang: If you have overhang that is over 6.5 meters (21′ 4″) you will be required to have 1 rear pilot car/escort vehicle. If your shipment overhang is in excess of 9 meters (29′ 6″) you will be required to have 1 front and 1 rear pilot car/escort vehicle.

Do I need a trucking permit? Legal load limits.

Nevada maximum load limits until a trucking permit is required:

Length: 75 feet maximum overall. Maximum trailer length is 53 feet.
Width: 8 feet 6 inches.
Height: 14 feet.
Weight: GVW 80,000 pounds. Single axle 20,000 pounds, tandem axles 34,000 pounds, tridem axles 42,000 pounds. Steer axle maximums require some math obviously. Here’s what the NVDOT says about it: “The maximum weight per tire, measured by pounds per inch of tire width, is 600 pounds per inch for the steering axle and 500 pounds per inch for all other axles, not to exceed the axle rating”. We say good luck with that, 12,400 pounds average???
Overhang: The maximum overhang allowed is 10 feet which overall must NOT exceed the maximum length of 75 feet.

Routine oversize and heavy-haul trucking permits.

These maximum dimensions/weights are considered routine oversize or heavy-haul trucking permits in NV:

Length: There really isn’t any routine maximum length. It all depends on proposed route and the state. After 105 feet in length it can get complicated.
Width: 17 feet. However some routes are restricted, see notes below;
Height: 16 feet.
Weight: Single axles 20,000 pounds, tandem axles 46,725 pounds, tridem axles 58,000 (to 59,000 see below) pounds. Determined by bridge formula, desired route, tire size and axle spacings especially for singles, tandems, tridums and quadem axles. Gross weights are: 5 axles 92,000 pounds with 70 feet minimum axle spacings, 6 axles 96,000 pounds with 70 feet minimum of axle spacings, 7 axles 101,000 pounds with 70 feet minimum of axles spacings, 8 axles 106,000 pounds with 70 feet minimum of axles spacings.
Overhang: No more than 15’ combined total but you want to check with them to make absolute sure as routing can effect this limit.
Notes: For weight restrictions Nevada has different routes marked. Choose the map you need for the entire state, western, eastern and southern restricted areas. You can also view a list. For purple, orange and green areas. Also, restrictions for width and weight are in effect on the following routes: route map, route list. Also note to get the extra 1,000 pounds as noted above (59,000 pounds on tridem configurations) you are allowed to use up to 2 tridem configurations only. Any additional tridem axle configurations will max out at 51,000 pounds. If you have tridem configurations on your tractor that will be counted as 1 of the 2. However, the distance between the steer axle and the center tridum axle must be a minimum of 18 feet. It is possible to to exceed this within reason but is reviewed case by case by the NVDOT permitting office.

Nevada superloads.

Requirements for extra-heavy or over-dimensional (superloads) in NV:

Nevada is picky about weights and heights. Rather than attempting to illustrate a list of items that may not apply we suggest if your shipment does not fall within the set maximums listed above it’s more than likely going to be considered a superload by NVDOT. The permitting process for superloads is different than the normal oversize or over-weight trucking permits in Nevada and must be fully drafted by the company or person requesting the permit. For instructions for the format your super-load application must be in see: Nevada-superloads.

NOTE: any special purpose or special needs loads that are outside of the normal permitting parameters will classify as a superload.

Legal travel times for oversize and heavy-haul loads.

Travel times and restrictions:

Remember to refer to your actual permit for travel times and restrictions. For Nevada daylight travel hours are defined as one half hour before sunrise to one half hour after sunset with some restrictions;  under 12 feet wide, 110 feet long or 15 feet tall may also travel during night hours and on weekends as long as you are not on I-80 between Sparks, NV and the CA state border or on I-15 between Las Vegas and the CA state border. There are no weekday curfews for any cities and if your load is under 12 feet wide, 100 feet long or 15 feet tall you may travel on holiday. However, if your load is in excess of these dimensions  holiday travel restrictions are on the following days: New Years day, Memorial day, Independence day, Labor day, Thanksgiving day and Christmas day. If a large event is predicted to create dense traffic they may restrict that date as well, ie: state fairs, etc.

When pilot cars or escort vehicles are required.

Heavy-haul or oversize loads may be required to be accompanied by a escort vehicle or pilot car if:

QUICK REFERENCE

Length:

  • over 105 feet in length requires on escort. This applies to both 2 lane and 4 lanes roads.

Width:

2 lane roads:

  • 12 feet requires 1 pilot car or escort.
  • 14 feet requires 1 pilot car and 1 escort.
  • 16 feet requires 3 total pilot cars and escort vehicles.
  • 17 feet will require a review which will probably require 1 pilot car and 1 escort and 1 police escort.

4 lane roads:

  • 14 feet requires 1 pilot car or escort.
  • 16 feet requires 1 pilot car and 1 escort.
  • 17 feet requires 1 pilot car and 1 escort and 1 police escort.

Height:

  • if over 16 feet and 6 inches in height you will be required to have 1 pilot car equipped with a height pole.

DETAILED REFERENCE

Length: If shipment is over 110 feet in length you are required to have 1 pilot car behind the shipment.
Width: If your shipment is over 12′ wide on up to a 3 lane road you are required to have 1 escort vehicle in the front of your shipment. If over 14′ wide on up to a 3 lane road you are required to have 1 escort in the front and 1 pilot car in the rear of the load.  If over 14′ wide on a 4 lane road you are required to have 1 rear escort. If over 16′ you are required to have 1 front pilot car and 1 rear escort on 4 lane and all other roads.
Height: Loads that are in excess of 15′ 6″ are required to have a front high pole pilot car at all times.
Weight: Pilot cars and escorts are usually not required on shipments over weight that are able to maintain the minimum posted speed requirements. If you are not able to maintain minimum speeds you will be required to have a minimum of a rear escort vehicle if travelling in urban and some rural areas.
Overhang: If in excess of 25 feet you will be required to have a minimum of 1 pilot car.
Notes: Some routes are completely restricot car.ted. If in the Hoover dam vicinity shipments are not permitted for anything over 10 feet in width but if 10 feet will require 1 pilot car and 1 escort.

Pilot car and escort vehicle requirements, certifications.

In order to operate a pilot car or escort vehicle in the state of Nevada you are required to have a minimum of the following:

First of all the state of Nevada requires that all pilot and escort vehicles be certified. If you are officially certified by another state then this is recognized by the state of Nevada as valid certification and you may operate within the state however, in order to have an amber light mounted to ANY vehicle you must first obtain a permit from the state which costs $2.00 per vehicle, per year. You can do that online by clicking here.
A pilot car or an escort vehicle is required to be equipped with a strobing or flashing amber light that is visible from a distance of no less than 500′ in daylight and from all 360 degree angles, mounted to the roof and above signs. The light must be a minimum of 50 candle power and if it is a rotating light must have a lens of no less than 5″ in diameter with a flash count or not less than 50 per minute. Any vehicle used for this purpose must be no less than 60″ in width, with a wheelbase of a minimum of 95″ with no more than 2 axles and a manufacturer’s gross weight of no more than 16,000 pounds.
Each vehicle must be equipped with a two way radio that is in constant contact with/to all parties involved in the shipment, 5 pound (minimum) fire extinguisher, 3 bi-directional 18″ road triangles, 1 stop/slow sign with 5′ pole handle, 1 hard hat, 1 reflective safety vest, a copy of the ANSI/ISEA manual which can be ordered online here for $30. Drivers must be a minimum of 18 years of age, have a valid drivers license, and must be flagger/flagman “capable or carrying out flagging responsibilities” (we strongly suggest a flagger safety class) of controlling traffic, wearing a approved safety yellow-green safety jacket or vest and equipped with a red flag and a stop/slow paddle of no less than 18″. Each vehicle should be equipped with proper signs that specify “oversize”,  “oversize load” or “wideload” as well as “long load” with black letters a minimum of 10″ in height with a letter thickness of no less than 1 5/8″ on a yellow background which are removed or covered while not in work transit mode. Pilot car and escort vehicles must have a placard on each side of the vehicle with the companies name and phone number clearly visible from a distance of no less than 50′.
Operators of pilot cars and escort vehicles will maintain a reasonable distance from the shipment which all depends on weather, traffic, road conditions and the speed you are travelling with reasonable distance defined by how much time it takes for the shipment driver to recognize your indications to stop, slow or pass as necessary.

Shipment, truck and trailer markings.

Truck, trailer and shipment required signs, banners and flags:

All trucking companies that are hauling oversize and overweight shipments must have a amber colored strobing or flashing light affixed to the top of the tractor trailer cab that is visible 360 degrees from a minimum distance of 500′. Signs that state the nature of the shipment; “oversize load” or “wideload” signs in the overall front and rear of the shipment. Signs will be no less than 7′ in width and 18″ in height with black lettering no less than 10″ in height with a lettering thickness of no less than 1 5/8″ thick on a yellow background. Signs must be mounted securely and free of any dirt or debris. Warning flags are to be used only in daylight hours and must be florescent orange in color with a minimum size distance of 18″ from one corner to the next corner and be placed at the outer most corners of the shipment as well as on any protrusions. IF the shipment is permitted to travel during night hours must have 2 constant display amber lights placed at the very most front extreme of the shipment,  two amber steady burning lights on the outer (side) center of the shipment and two red steady lit lights on the outer most rear of the shipment. THIS INCLUDES OVER-WEIGHT LOADS MOVING AT NIGHT.

Frost laws and restrictions for Nevada state.

Frost and thaw laws for Nevada:

Nevada is fairly elusive on frost and thaw law travel restrictions. They do provide a map but there is not much detail on it as far as the exact roads that must be travelled. You can view the frost law map or view this thaw law material published by the state DOT which does reference it as well. Then they also have some basic shipment route information that references it as well for the state of Nevada.

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”. See also “comments” at bottom.
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.

Trucking industry backlinks

Want backlinks on trucking related websites in 2018?

Flatbed-trailer

We’re your trucking backlink source.

Backlinks are not everything but they do count for a lot these days and if you’re in the trucking industry you know they are hard, hard, hard to get. The majority of the people who own trucking companies are hard at work at some other task. Even if they did author their own website it takes a lot of effort for the average person to get the job done right. Then things like linking text. You might be on the phone all day for just a few links.

Time to get connected. If you’d like you can join us for more transportation industry backlinks. What you should know about the type of work we do is:

  • We only deal with websites that have 100% total quality content.
  • We only deal with websites that are backed by companies that are well established within our industry.
  • We’re looking to work with companies that are actually in the industry. If you are an insurance broker or industry services provider please click here for more information.
  • We are not very interested in having a link on your “links” page however we do prefer having a text link that is included in well written good quality content.

Did you think that getting a backlink in the trucking industry was impossible?

Think again. One thing I will say is that for some reason our Google page rank bounces between 2 and 4. Not much we can do about that but continue to do what we’ve done for the last 14 years. Ad content. We think this may be due to so many words being repeated on pages like our “oversize trucking regulations” as we will have to use many of the same words over and over and in the Flesch-Kincaid website reading test text like this doen’t rank very well. However, in 2017 we managed to crank out an average of 1,323,000 actual human page views a month. So, odds are that not only will the search engines show you some love but so will our traffic.

In the event we find that your website is full of great content and you thought the same of us. We are willing to even go further based on what you have to bring to the table. Something like a permanent anchor text link towards the very top of your website would prompt us to email the rest of the folks that trade backlinks with us and let them know about you as well.

If anything consider being added to our list.

At the moment we have a pretty good sized list of folks that mention us in their articles from time to time. This list of backlink friends in the trucking industry is like gold and we know it. So, to be included in it and possibly be shared with everyone else you have to let us know you exist. If you we’re looking for some automated way to get this done well guess what? There isn’t one. There are many companies that say they can do it. But, by the time they are done with you getting backlinks from other trucking companies or within the transportation industry will be the last of your worries as you will then have to either:

  1. Figure out how to “undo” all of the damage they did by manually requesting the links be removed.
  2. Start a whole new website.

The search engines are a billion dollar industry and they are NOT going to tolerate crappy backlinks, web circles, link wheels, link exchange scripts or any of that anymore. Compare those days to the cowboy days where you rode into town with a gun strapped to your hip. They’re over. The only way to do it is the right way. Contact us we’ve got a whole empire of trucking related companies that are looking for good backlinks.

 



 

So if your are operating within the heavy haul trucking industry daily and your website reflects this kind of content then you exactly who we’re looking for. Simply contact us and let us know about your traffic and what you have in mind.

We’ve found and identified such an area and it’s with oversize and over-weight trucking permits. With technology rapidly advancing state offices are too. Many DOT offices have learned that automation saves money as with the permit business now as well.

What this means is that it isn’t real hard to obtain the proper permits for shipping oversize and over-weight freight so why not deal directly with the state yourself and save money? While Hawaii oversize trucking outfits don’t have to worry about crossing multiple states they can still benefit from the technology that has advanced in these modern times by do it yourself trucking permits.

We can show you how to start obtaining your own oversize and over-weight trucking permits in just a few clicks.

With the Hawaii DOT office of transportation processing a low volume of trucking permits for oversize and over-weight shipping the need for a online permitting system is not as crucial in saving man hours but that still doesn’t mean it a hard this to do. In fact, you can start ordering your own permits today in as little as two steps but let’s call if 3 just for the fun of it. It goes like this:

  1. Print up the application and fill it out. You can do that here.
  2. Fax it in to the number on the application as soon as you have filled it out.
  3. Relax and do something else as your permit is on it’s way to being approved by a state team of professional.

So, there’s really no reason at all to worry about paying someone else to so something for you that you do most of the work anyway. Don’t you have to provide all of this information to the company you currently use for trucking permits anyway? Please share your comments below with our other viewers and help pass it on.
