Over Dimensional Transport Services

Titan Worldwide specializes in providing logistics and transportation services for all over-weight, over-dimensional and wide load cargo nationwide.  We service many industries, some of which include the following: oil & gas, petrochemical, power generation, manufacturing, and construction industries.

State Oversize/Overweight Load Permit Contacts

What is OD freight? 

  • Over-dimensional freight is any cargo that exceeds the legal specifications dictated by the US Department of Transportation and each specific state or province.
  • While these can vary depending on the jurisdiction, a general guideline for legal parameters is: 53’ long, 8’ 6” wide and 13’ 6” tall (on the trailer). The height limit will vary, generally speaking the western states and provinces, except for British Columbia, the height limit is 14’. As a general rule, any state east of the Mississippi River will limit the height of cargo to 13’ 6”.
  • Cargo that exceeds any these parameters and is non-reducible in size, is considered oversized or over dimensional and requires a permit before being shipped. Cargo that is taller than 16’ enters a new category called “super status.” This requires a different type of permit and often a pole car will need to dry run the route before the shipment commences. Super status shipments are complicated and require an experienced driving team. The super status can vary depending on the state as well, for example Florida considers anything over 15’ in height to be super status load, due to the low infrastructure in that particular state.

Shipping Process for OD Freight

TWW will conduct a detailed route survey that takes into account all expected obstacles for a particular shipment. This can be complicated as different states and provinces have different regulations for shipping oversized items. For example, some states may allow travel at night with over dimensional freight, whereas others may require that you park your truck for the evening or weekend. Depending on how disruptive the cargo might be to other vehicles on the load, quite often the truck will not be allowed to travel during peak rush hour times within city limits.

Depending on the nature of the cargo we may have one or two pilot cars, with a height pole attached to the lead car for cargo that is over height. By running a quarter mile ahead of the truck, the pole car can give ample warning to the truck driver if the pole hits some low hanging power lines or other unforeseen infrastructure.

Lowboy / RGN

Our lowboy trucking companies have drivers equipped with 2-axle to 14-axle trailers to carry the biggest equipment allowed on the road.


We will plan your route, provide the transportation and make sure that your job can be completed on time. No matter what type of over-sized machinery you are transporting, Titan’s lowboy trucking can handle it.

Break Bulk Cargo

When shipping things overseas on a cargo ship or barge, you need a company to take that cargo to its final destination. Titan Worldwide can take the cargo from ship to site and take care of the logistics along the way.


Transporting heavy machinery can be one of the most difficult aspects of any project. From mining to construction to oil and gas, you need heavy machinery for success.


Titan Worldwide will not only get the equipment you need to the place that you need it, but we will also handle the planning at an affordable cost.


More than that, you can rely on us as heavy machine movers with exceptional knowledge of worldwide needs.

Heavy Lift Trucking & Rigging Service

Rigging is as much an exercise in math and science as it is the use of brute force for a heavy equipment hauler. At Titan Worldwide, we provide the material, rig your items on site and then transport them wherever they need to go.


We are a one-stop shop with a complete solution from rigging to the heavy haul process.
