What Is a Superload?

superload permits

A superload is over-dimensional, like an oversize haul, but a superload exceeds an oversized load in width, height, length, or weight. Superloads can’t be divided or broken down to reduce their size. They are often pieces of extremely heavy and large equipment. For example, cranes, vessels, and structures often merit superload designation.

Different states will define a superload differently. For instance, in Massachusetts, a superload is 130,000 lbs., but in Pennsylvania, cargo that surpasses 201,000 lbs. is considered to be a superload.
