Oversized cargo is a large-sized item that, due to its size, weight, or specific features, cannot be transported in a closed vehicle, that is, by standard modes of transportation. There are minimum and maximum restrictions established taking into account the safety conditions for the transportation of various goods for each mode of transport and for each state, if the transportation is carried out across the territory of several countries. At the same time, the term "cargo" is used with reference to the corresponding vehicle, that is, the dimensions and mass of the cargo should be determined by the parameters "cargo + vehicle" or the concept of "cargo in transport".
Non-standard or oversized cargo can, for example, include large-sized containers, turbines, steam boilers, complex metal structures, factory equipment, construction and road equipment, tower cranes, etc., which have specific shapes, weights and dimensions and require individual calculations of payment for loading and transportation.
The transportation of oversized cargo is always accompanied by the execution of many documents and permits from the authorized organizations of the country of destination.
