What is an Abnormal Load & What is Important When Transporting Heavy Goods?
An abnormal load is a consignment that cannot be broken down into smaller parts for transport. It includes anything that exceeds 2.9m in width or is over 18.75m in length.
When transporting abnormal indivisible loads via a vehicle on the road, it is a legal requirement to adhere to government rules and regulations as well as the highways agency, and to obtain authorisation from special types authorities.
Additionally, working with the local authorities to plan the journey is crucial. Keep in mind that abnormal load movements require a minimum of two full working days’ notice to notify the police and highway agency before the movement can take place.
When transporting abnormal loads, it’s a legal requirement to adhere to the government rules and regulations for load size and load weight and to work with the local authorities to plan the journey.
