Oversize and Heavy Transport is a type of transport used to meet the special transport needs of cargoes with a volume greater than LENGTH 13.55m x WIDTH 2.48m x HEIGHT 2.98m and heavier than 22 Tonnes, which are considered as international standard dimensions, due to the fact that they are beyond the standard transport limits. Transportation of cargoes subject to Oversize and Heavy Transport Services occurs as a result of the provision of Qualified Equipment, Strategic Planning and fulfilment of Legal Obligations as a whole. In this context, SD-C Haulage offers high service quality with a complete range of equipment and experienced teams required for international deliveries of cargoes subject to Oversize and Heavy Transport services.

About Oversize and Heavy Transport equipments:
We carry out the transportation of cargoes with a volume of more than LENGTH 13.55m x WIDTH 2.48m x HEIGHT 2.98m and heavier than 22 Tonnes subject to Oversize and Heavy Transport Services by means of specially designed Lowbed, Lowloader and Flatbed Vehicles and equipment, which are capable of carrying more weight than standard vehicles, have steering feature and a greater number of axles, whose loading platform can be extended when necessary, and which are specially tailored in terms of ground clearance height or platform width.

About the Strategic Planning of Oversize and Heavy Transport Services:
Since Oversize and Heavy Transportation Operations are more complicated and have special requirements compared to standard transports, we rely on our years of experience and our local agents in all the countries we serve for the fastest and most efficient way to provide the most reasonable answer to extremely crucial questions such as "What size and weight of a cargo should be loaded on what kind of equipment?", "What should be the fastening method suitable for the structure of the cargo?" and "How can the transportation be carried out from which route in the fastest, safest and most cost-effective way?" and we guide our customers towards the most suitable options. We are carrying out these Oversize and Heavy Transport Operations by ensuring a high level of customer satisfaction.

About the Legal Obligations regarding Oversize and Heavy Transport Services:
Oversize and Heavy Transport Operations are subject to rules and special transportation permits set by National Legislators, Ministries of Transportation, and their General Directorates of Roads in each country. These rules and permits include specific routes for transport, driving hours and other conditions. In each country, it is required to apply the relevant authority for a permit for such transportation operations, specifying the Length x Width x Height of the Loaded Vehicle, and for the transportation to be carried out on a route with infrastructure suitable for the weight of the Loaded Vehicle. And again, taking into account the size of the Loaded Vehicle, for the realization of Oversize and Heavy Transport Operations on a certain route and time period, if the load to be transported and the size of the Loaded Vehicle requires it, said authority issues a permit on the condition that Civilian Pilots and, if necessary, Police Escort Vehicles shall be used for traffic safety purposes during the course of transportation. These permit procedures are evaluated in different categories based on the size and tonnage in each country and are finalized in different time periods in each country. As SD-C Haulage, we manage and conclude these legal permission procedures in the fastest way possible through reliable local agencies in each country and finalize our Oversize and Heavy Transport Operations by having a zero-error approach.
