What is a heavy load or an over-sized load?

A heavy load or an over-sized load is a load which by its parameters exceeds the defined size or weight limits. Legislatives of individual states regulate this issue in a different way, but in general, we can simply say that:

"A train of excessive size is each train which is longer than 16.5m, wider than 2.55m and higher than 4.0mm, or the total weight of the sett exceeds 40t (in the Czech Republic 48t, depending on the number of chassis)".

Our company has a long tradition in transportation of heavy loads and over-sized loads. Since we provide the transportation of over-sized loads not only within the Czech Republic, but within nearly the whole of Europe, it is a matter of course that the team of our employees has wide experience with this type of transportation and is able to suggest an optimum transportation solution of an over-sized load. Naturally, we also provide related services, which include research of the route, authorisations and technical convoys. These services are provided along the whole route and for all countries included in the transportation.
