Abnormal Load Escort

We provide clients with advice, escort vehicles and staffing to manage the transportation of abnormal loads.

According to current legislation:

“An ‘abnormal load’ is a vehicle that has any of the following: 

  • a weight of more than 44,000 kilograms
  • an axle load of more than 10,000 kilograms for a single non-driving axle and 11,500 kilograms for a single driving axle
  • a width of more than 2.9 metres
  • a length of more than 18.65 metres 

If you’re responsible for transporting an abnormal load, you need to follow regulations for notifying the authorities.” *

As a former Police Traffic Officer, our Managing Director is ideally suited to help you plan and manage your route and your communications with the appropriate authorities.

All abnormal load escort services are provided by ourselves or in conjunction with our strategic partners, Rydale Solutions of Derby.


All escort staff are screened and vetted to the exacting standards of the security industry, BS:7858, to ensure our clients’ goods are as safe and secure as they can be.
