Oversize load route planning is more complicated than just driving a load from point A to B. How do you know what obstacles you’ll encounter along the way? Experienced bucket truck escort services plan logistics for every aspect of the trip, from utility coordination to finding the right roads, and a solid plan will account for every possibility to ensure a successful transport. Here’s what it takes to properly plan an oversize load route.
Lower 48 State Authority™
Being able to plan and execute a successful cross-country oversize haul requires the right combination of experience and connections. Each state has different permit requirements, different route restrictions and different obstacles that could put a snag in your hauling plans. At Kenco, we’re a Lower 48 State Authority™ when it comes to handling logistics. We know the permitting and load requirements for each state you’ll encounter, so our crews can guide your cargo from the starting point to the finish line and all stops in between.
Utility Coordination and Obstacle Removal
Utility poles and wires create some of the biggest dangers and obstacles for oversize hauls. Without proper planning, they can completely derail a transport. Well-trained bucket truck operators know how to coordinate with local authorities, Departments of Transportation and utility companies to minimize the impact of utility lines and other obstacles. Kenco crews are trained to safely remove and reinstall traffic lights, communication cables, streetlights, signage and other aerial and roadside obstacles quickly and efficiently.
Pre-Route Practice Run
An OS/OW route might look good on paper, but do you know if the roads will support the load before you start the trip? Work with a bucket truck escort service that will do a dry run of the route. We know the roads, and our team performs practice runs to ensure everything is ready before the cargo is even loaded. Time spent planning is time and money saved on the road.
Kenco crews are fully trained in the safest and most efficient ways to safely transport oversize loads. Ready to plan your next route? Contact us today!
