Specialized freight refers to the shipments that exceed regular freight characteristics in terms of weight, size, shape, or handling requirements. Usually, specialized freight is common among industrial businesses like heavy machinery, metal and mining, and oil and gas. In most cases, this freight requires special transportation equipment because shipments are either too big, bulky or need services that normal transportation companies do not provide.

When it comes to specialized shipping, it is crucial to find a reliable and experienced transportation partner. Shipping specialized freight comes with many challenges, such as complicated handling, proper equipment, strict safety compliance, and accurate shipment planning. Specialized shipping services allow companies with specialized freight and equipment to move freight safely and efficiently.
