Super Load and Break Bulk Transport Services - Domestic, and International.
Transporting the biggest and most complicated loads.
Handling super loads for most shipping companies is worrisome and exciting. At Nationwide Transport Services, LLC, we arrange the necessary transport means to make transportation of super loads conveniently. Some of the trailers and carriers utilized to handle extremely large loads include the multiline trailer, beam trailers, self-propelled trailers, platform trailers, and many more. If you are wondering whether yours is a super load, we have logistical coordinators to handle your needs, know that a superload isn’t just finding trailers with a capacity to suite it’s weight and size, superload planning takes much more time, effort, and experience to ship a 180,000 pound bridge cast than it would for a 60,000 pound crawler excavator. Most of the super loads and break bulk loads handled routinely exceed the dimensions of the state permits. We come in and offer our specialized heavy hauling services to divisible loads. Trying to review the state limits? Why not leave it to the specialists and let us handle your load with our super team.
Is Your Load a Superload?
We provide the best trailer and experienced driver.
Our superload shipping operations are pretty standardized if you refer to obtaining state approval, acquiring the right utilities, route surveys, pilot cars, permits, and survey basics to get to it’s cargo ship. Because different states can vary, transporting a superload requires that we do our homework beforehand. For instance, in New York State that a load over 200,000 lb is a super load while in Massachusetts a load over 130,000 lb is considered a super load, despite sharing a border. Hauling a super load requires keeping all this in mind. In most states, a two week lead time is required before transporting the super load. For bigger break bulk, months of planning are required before the actual operation. We handle the logistics and provide all the components required for the operation. When transporting a superload, carrying out surveys on overhead obstacles and traffic is important.
Break Bulk Shipping, What is It? Do You Need it?
Break bulk cargo doesn’t fit in standard shipping containers.
We not only solve problems on super load and break bulk transportation, we also provide experience, know how, and problem solving just to mention a few. The transportation of breakbulk includes several risks. For instance, loading and unloading of the over dimensional cargo has to be done with care to avoid any accidents. We work with our specialists and customers to ensure the preparation and execution of break bulk is effective. Even with the most experienced logisticians, we are often faced with new challenges during our operations. That’s where our break bulk problem solving skills come in. For instance, we’ve invested in the latest technology to help us load and unload the cargo fast and efficiently with cranes, moving platforms, and other moving equipment. Therefore, at the break-in-bulk point, we ensure everything is done professionally to avoid any damages. No matter which industry you operate in, we have your superload and breakbulk hauling needs covered.

Your Break Bulk Specialist
Communicating with Nationwide Transport Services is easy because you can always connect with an expert about your order. We assign a logistics agent to each break bulk shipping request. That load specialist manages everything from taking your request to verifying delivery.
To calculate an accurate estimate for superload shipping, your logistics agent will need certain details about your freight, including:
- Dimensions, such as height, length and width.
- Pickup and delivery ZIP codes.
- The time frame for transport.
- Your need for load assistance, pilot cars or escort vehicles.
- Your need for accessories such as tarps or chains.
Once your load specialist has gathered the information they need and you've accepted a quote, they start making arrangements. This process is more difficult for superloads, but our specialists have the necessary experience to plan complex transport operations for freight of any size. Before transport, your logistics agent will take care of everything, including:
- Hiring a driver and crew with the right experience and equipment.
- Performing surveys on traffic, overhead obstacles and other complications.
- Researching state regulations about superloads and planning the best route.
- Completing paperwork and gathering permits for compliant transport.
- Staying in consistent communication with your team to give you updates.
Throughout transport and delivery, your load specialist will follow up on your freight and resolve any complications.
