Heavy Haul and Specialized Transportation
For freight that exceeds the height and weight limits of our roadways, you need Bennett’s specialized trucking services. Overweight loads require heavier duty trailers with up to 19 axles. Over dimensional freight can take many forms from large airplane wings and rocket engines, to bulky agricultural equipment and storage tanks. Our expert project managers devise the right trailer and securement method to ensure that your shipment is transported safely and damage free. Plus, our in-house permit staff handles all of the special permits and escorts needed to cross state lines, and meet local requirements.
