Oversized cargo

As part of the DB SCHENKERoversized service, we offer dedicated logistic projects for consignments which require solutions designed on a case-by-case basis in view of their dimensions, weight or transport specificity. 

Using a broad range of specialist means of transport, we organise dispatches of oversized cargo to various regions worldwide with the delivery to the final consignee.

Specialist transport comprises, among other things:

  • large steel structures
  • construction machinery
  • tanks, combines
  • transformers
  • cranes with exceeded tonnage parameters etc.

Specialist transport of oversized consignments is specific in many aspects. Each transport is determined by different dimensions, different tonnage and different route. Using the services of DB Schenker you may be sure that all necessary procedures and requirements will be met.

While preparing oversized consignments for dispatch, we place emphasis on coordination of such factors as:

  • obtaining special permits
  • development of the plan of loading and mounting individual elements
  • selecting an appropriate transport set
  • checking the transport route in the case of substantially exceeded load’s dimensions 
  • organisation of removal of road signage, raising overhead traction lines of PKP (railway), Telecommunications company /with loads of a substantially exceeded height
  • the terms and condition of realisation of oversized transports in particular transport countries
  • allowed time of ride / bans on ride
  • regulations of the Highway Code
  • terms and conditions relating to the pilot’s assistance or the police escort preceded by drafting a detailed time schedule hour on hour,
  • marking the vehicle with oversized cargo

We also offer the full handling of oversized consignments, including insurance and customs clearance.
