Overload transport: transport of loads exceeding weight limits by road

There are no size limits, but in some cases compliance with additional regulations and requirements is necessary.

However, when the weight and the shape of the load exceed the standards, overload transport is required:

  • Length: 16.50m if it is a car or tractor with a trailer or semi-trailer, 18.75m for trucks with trailers
  • Width: 2.55m for all vehicles, 2.50m for vehicles carrying out temperature-controlled goods
  • Height: 4,00m
  • Weight: 18-20 tons for isolated two-axle vehicles, 24-44 tons for trucks with 3, 5 or more axles. NB: vehicles that exceed these weight limits are referred to as construction vehicles.
