Send A Request

Transportation of oversized cargo to Russia is a complex task that requires a comprehensive solution.

The ability to transport outsize (oversized and long) and heavy cargo may be limited not only by the characteristics of vehicles, but also by the size and carrying capacity of bridges, the size of tunnels, the presence of level crossings, power lines, etc.

WR Group specializes in the transportation of oversized cargo within the framework of large industrial projects and provides a whole range of services for organizing the transportation of non-standard cargo to Russia.
Oversized is considered to be the cargo whose parameters exceed the established norms and thus do not allow the cargo to be transported by standard means of transport, for example, in a closed road vehicle or a closed container. For each type of rolling stock, there is a different regulatory framework and, accordingly, a different definition of oversize cargo, its dimensions and weight.

Cargo parameters for standard road transport are 20 m in length, 4 m in height and 2.55 m in width together with the vehicle. All large cargoes, the dimensions of which exceed the above parameters, are classified as oversized (bulky).

Heavy cargoes in road transport are cargoes weighing more than 38 tons together with the vehicle. Heavy cargoes can be oversized at the same time.

Most often, industrial (manufacturing) equipment, as well as construction, road and other special equipment is transported as oversized and heavy cargo in project logistics. For the transportation of such goods, special technical equipment of vehicles is required, preliminary approvals and permits, as well as escort cars are often needed and much more. Delivery of heavy and non-standard cargo to Russia can be carried out by different types of vehicles: trucks, airplanes, ships, trains..
