What kind of permits will I need to transport cargo through Texas?
The driver of an oversize load or wide load needs to obtain a permit from the state of Texas. Superload carriers will also need special permits, plans, and escorts
Oversized loads are freight that weighs more than the legal criteria within a state. This includes the height, length, and width of a load. Moving heavy and oversized equipment requires specialized equipment and trailers. You’ll also need specific permits issued by the state of Texas.
Texas also has specific times of the day when an oversized load can be operated, starting at half an hour before sunrise to half an hour after sunset. A legal rear and front overhang can travel at night, but only on the interstates.
When you work with Titan for your heavy-haul transportation services, our truck drivers will take care of all the permitting needs required to ship your load through Texas, as well as any other states the shipment will be transported through. That means no delays, no fines, and no hassle for our clients!
What's considered an oversized load in Texas?
The standard legal dimensions of a semi-trailer in Texas are 59 feet, with a maximum weight not to exceed 80,000 pounds. Loads exceeding these dimensions are considered oversized and require a permit.
Long loads that exceed 125 feet will require a Super Load permit. Routes for Super Loads must be planned in cooperation with the state’s Department of Transportation.
Oversized permits in Texas last for three to five days. Permits need to be applied for and received before traveling through the state.
Our team will handle all of the work to obtain permits and coordinate the best route with the state.
Will I need an escort to transport my cargo through Texas?
Escort requirements are determined by the final size of your shipment. Signs are only required on escort vehicles. Red flags should be placed at all extremities.
If oversized loads are traveling on Texas highways, an escort is required for lengths over 109′, width over 14′, height over 17′, or an overhang more than 20′. If the load is over two dimensions that require escort, then 2 escorts will be required.
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 through the southwestern states, Mexico, or all the way to Canada.
How much does it cost to ship oversized loads in Texas?
You can generally expect to pay between $2.30 and $10 per mile. Many factors affect the cost of shipping goods, including:
Type of goods
Mileage and designated routes
Pick up and destination location
Time of year and trucking demand
Number and type of permits required

What kind of trailers do you have for handling heavy equipment?
Our specialty is transporting goods for heavy equipment for oilfield, construction, and agriculture industries throughout Texas and across the country. Our solutions, resources, and trucking equipment are tailored to the specific needs of each job.
For example, a common option is our flatbed trailer, with a maximum weight of 48,000 pounds.
For extremely heavy loads, we’ll typically utilize our removable gooseneck RGN trailer. The maximum weight of this trailer is over 150,000 pounds. This option is ideal for very heavy and large items that can’t get transported inside a trailer.
From goosenecks to lowboy trailers, our company has the appropriate equipment to handle all types of hauling jobs safely and professionally.
