Large Capacity Transport

What is a Large Capacity Transport?

A Large Capacity Transport is the transport of over-dimensional cargo (ODC). ODC means cargo with large dimension which cannot be fitted into a transport vehicle i.e. the cargo extends beyond a normal deck of cargo (20' or 40').

In comparison to regular heavy-goods vehicles, large capacity transport vehicles  are advantageous due to their efficiency and productivity. Moreover, the vehicles are able to be used as consolidated freight from smaller trucks. Their fuel consumption is lesser, and as result they produce less emissions during cargo transportation.
