High & Heavy/Abnormal Load

High and heavy cargo, as the name implies, is a term defining cargo types that have unusual height and weight requirements. At RTM we classify cargo as high and heavy if its length exceeds 18m, its height exceeds 4.5m, its width exceeds 4.5m, and its weight exceeds 80mt.

RTM’s high and heavy services including the careful handling and transport of cargo including port delivery, crating and palletizing, shrink wrap, special surveys, clearances and permits, inland transportation including special escort requirements, drive away services, customs clearance and more.

This highly specialized class of cargo requires special attention along every point from port-to-port. RTM has distinguished itself as a specialist in high and heavy cargo for many years. High and heavy cargo requests are handled exclusively through RTM’s Advanced Project Desk specialists. APD team members are specially trained and seasoned executives with extensive training in the unique demands of sensitive cargo.
