Oversize cargo transportation

перевозка негабаритных грузовOversize cargo transportation  is a very difficult task. Handling, placing, mounting, design and many other problems in this case requires a special approach, and sometimes unconventional solutions. This type of cargo is regulated by separate rules, failure to carry out of which may entail a variety of negative consequences, ranging from penalties to serious emergency situations.

Each mode of transport has its own criteria of what is considered oversized cargo. In terms of rail transport oversized cargo is considered to be the case if at least one parameter exceeds its established standards: 14 m long, 3.25 m width, 5.3 m height. The size of load that exceeds these limits, can not be placed in a covered wagon. Project cargo is carried by rail trucks platforms.

Absolute limits are imposed on the transport of the size of tunnels, bridges, width and height of power lines located along the route. In addition, the bearing capacity of bridges imposes restrictions on the maximum weight of cargo. From this it follows that the transport of heavy or bulky cargo route selection is crucial - not always the best would be the shortest possible way.

Further, the transportation of bulky cargo on a particular segment of the traveling required permits from the agencies responsible for security at the section. Agreement is subject not only to the route, but also special traffic conditions, including high-speed mode, because the dynamics of acceleration and braking wagon with an unusual heavy loads will be significantly different from the same parameters during normal transportation. On approval of the route to the destination point may take considerable time.

Separate the most important question is the lashing of cargo, ensuring its safety and traffic safety. Since the configuration of the transported can be very different, single method is simply not exist. Calculation of retention in each case calculated individually, and to do so should only be a highly qualified specialist with appropriate education. Errors in these calculations can be very expensive.

Thus, it becomes clear that the transport of bulky cargo requires serious preparatory work, perform complex calculations, processing a large number of technical documentation and interaction with multiple agencies.
