What kind of permits will I need to transport cargo through Alaska?
The driver of an oversized load needs to obtain a permit from the state of Alaska. Super load carriers will also need special permits.
When you work with Titan for your trucking needs, our truck drivers will take care of all the permitting needs required to ship your load through Alaska, as well any other states the shipment will be transported through. That means no delays, no fines, and no hassle for our clients! Delivering your freight safely and on time is our top priority.
Will I need an escort to transport my cargo through Alaska?
Escort requirements are determined by the final size of shipments. At a minimum, all oversize loads/vehicles must display “Oversize Load” on both front and rear.
If oversized loads are traveling on one of Alaska‘s highways, one escort is required for lengths over 85′ or width over 10’. Two escorts are required for width over 12′ or a length 100′.
Our company is committed to making the process hassle-free for our customers. Our truck drivers will make all the arrangements if pilot cars are needed for any of the locations your cargo will travel through the United States, Canada or all the way to Mexico.
In Alaska, the legal dimensions for standard trucks and loads, including overhang, are 75′ long, 8’6″ wide, and 15′ high.
Titan Worldwide has experience working with the rules and regulations of Alaska. Our logistics team will create a tailored shipping solution so you don’t have to worry about anything.

What kind of trailers do you have for handling heavy equipment?
Our specialty is transporting heavy construction, agriculture, hazmat cargo, oilfield goods, and other types of equipment throughout Alaska and across the country. Our solutions, resources, and trucking equipment are tailored to the specific needs of each business.
For example, a common option in our heavy haul fleet are our flatbed trailers, which offer a maximum weight of 48,000 pounds.
For many super loads, we’ll utilize our removable gooseneck RGN trailer (also called lowboy trailers). The maximum weight of this trailer is over 150,000 pounds. This option is ideal for very large items over the maximum height for hauling inside a trailer.
No matter what specialized transportation is required —whether refrigerated trailers, winch trucks, or one of our step deck trailers—our team will match your unique freight to the best trailer for the job, and guarantee to load and deliver it safely and professionally.
