"Authorities say that in the super load’s longest configuration, the load including all of the trucks is 587 feet long, 31 feet wide, and 42 feet high and weighs more than 900 U.S. tons."

If you get a sec to watch the beginning of this "super load" it looks SO COOL!!!!

Fm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

That is freaking awesome, I've done some fairly big oversize in the past, but according to that, I ain't done squat!

You know what would suck, is if you stopped for fuel and the Super Load was in line before you.

Lol, I'm pretty sure that thing will not be pulling into any fuel island in the world, usually loads like that with multiple trucks powering it have a fuel truck traveling along with them for refueling.

Ha, ha, I was joking of course. But I did once pull in to a Pilot in Sturbridge MA and found a National Guard convoy in the fuel line. They were considerate enough to only use 3 of the 6 fuel lanes though.

Maybe, but I'm just going to get back in the flatbed groove with Prime for a year or more, honestly, I'm not sure if their flatbed division does oversize or not,, never asked, but maybe at some point I'll seek out oversize again
