Permit service for heavy, large & special transports

Carrying out a heavy transport, special transport or large-volume transport can be quite a challenging task even for a freight forwarding company. This already starts with the planning, because for special transports and heavy transports, whose dimensions exceed the defined dimensions as well as the total weight according to STVO, exceptions apply. The freight forwarder has to obtain special permits for this.

The STVO defines the maximum permissible height as 4 meters, the width as 2.55 meters and the length as 15.5 to 16.5 meters. However, the specifications sometimes vary from country to country. In any case, an exemption must be requested if the maximum height is exceeded.


This means that you not only have to organize the logistics of the transport, but also obtain expert opinions, procure the necessary documents, apply for permits from the authorities - and also observe the necessary deadlines. As if planning such a journey were not challenge enough.

Obtain permission:
This is still to be considered for permits

The application or the granting of a permit in Austria, but also in other countries, can take some time. Due to different country- or federal state-specific factors, route-related challenges and transport-related requirements, such as the dimensions of the special transport, the application time or the period until the permit is issued may vary. Therefore, keep in mind to allow sufficient time for approvals in addition to transportation planning.
