What kind of permits will I need to transport cargo through Missouri?
The carrier of an oversized load or wide load needs to obtain a permit from the state of Missouri. Superload carriers will also need special permits.
When you work with Titan for your trucking needs, our drivers will take care of providing customers with all the permitting needs required for transporting the load through Missouri, as well as any other states the shipment will be transported through. That means no delays, no fines, and no hassle for our clients! Safe and on-time delivery is our top priority.
Will I need an escort to transport my cargo through Missouri?
The final size of your shipment determines escort requirements. At a minimum, all oversize loads/vehicles must display “Oversize Load” on both front and rear.
If oversized loads travel on one of Missouri’s highways, one escort is required for lengths over 90′ except on divided highways. Loads with width over 12′4″. Two escorts are required on two-lane and undivided highways.
Our dedicated staff is committed to making the process hassle-free for our customers. Our drivers will make all the arrangements if pilot cars are needed for any locations your cargo will travel through, whether through the Appalachians, West Plains, Canada, or all the way to Mexico.
What's considered an oversized load in Missouri?
In Missouri, the legal dimensions for standard trucks and loads, including overhang, are 53′ long, 8’6″ wide, and 14′ high, with a gross weight ranging from 80,000.
Shipments exceeding 150′ or that have a gross weight over 160,000 are considered super loads.
Titan Worldwide has experience working with the rules and regulations of Missouri. With decades of experience carrying challenging loads in the heavy freight hauling sector, our Missouri customers have come to rely on our industry knowledge and expertise. Our logistics professionals 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, and other types of equipment throughout Missouri 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 is our flatbed trailers, which offer a maximum weight of 48,000 pounds.
For many super loads, we’ll utilize our removable gooseneck RGN trailer. 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 a gooseneck, flatbed, or one of our step deck trailers—our team will match your unique cargo to the best trailer for the job, and guarantee to load and deliver it safely and professionally.
