Special transports

Certain truck combinations are, through the addition of extra axles, specially adapted to carry excessively heavy and/or long and wide loads. Under the conditions stated in their permit, these special transports are allowed to carry excessive loads on specific routes.

Data from WIM systems can be used to determine and plan possible routes for special transports and to verify compliance with their permits. This will avoid unnecessary damage to bridges and pavements, reduce maintenance costs, increase road safety and at the same time maximise use of the road network and increase transport efficiency.
