What kind of permits will I need to transport cargo through North Carolina?
The carrier of an oversized load needs to obtain a permit from the state of North Carolina. 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 North Carolina., as well as any other states the shipment will be transported through.

Will I need an escort to transport my cargo through North Carolina?
Escort requirements are determined by the final size of your shipment. At a minimum, all oversize loads/vehicles must display “Oversize Load” on both front and rear.
If oversized loads are traveling on one of North Carolina’s highways, one escort is required for lengths over 110′, width over 12′, or height over 14’5″. Two escorts are required for width over 14′ or a length more than 150’. If the load is over 15′ wide, it may require a police escort.
Our team 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, whether up and down the east coast, Canada or all the way to Mexico.

What kind of trailers do you have for handling heavy equipment?
Our specialty is transporting heavy construction, agriculture, oilfield goods, and other types of equipment throughout North Carolina and across the country. Our solutions, resources, and trucking equipment are tailored to the specific needs of each business.
For example, a common option for heavy haul shipping 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 equipment that exceeds the maximum height for hauling inside a trailer.
No matter what specialized transportation is required —whether a bucket truck, flatbed, or one of our step deck trailers—our team will match the unique needs of your overweight freight to the best trailer for the job, and guarantee to load and deliver it safely and professionally.
