TRAILERS & ODC

PROJECT CARGO

Trailers and ODC Project Cargo Service

ODC or Over Dimensional Cargo is a cargo that protrudes outside the loading deck of the vehicle transporting the cargo. By qualifying a consignment as ODC and imposing regulations over carriage of ODC, the government aims at avoiding any unsafe practices and accidents in the sphere of transport and logistics.

The Indian government defines the height limit for all mechanical trucks and trailers at 3.8 meters (12.46 feet) from the surface.

In case of length and width too, the government has provided upper limits which are 12 meters length for Rigid Trucks, 16 meters length for articulated vehicles (also called Trailers) and 2.6 meters width for all vehicles 

 

if your cargo is wider than 2.6 meters, it is qualified as ODC even if the loading deck exceeds the cargo width. Keeping these in mind it is important to identify and hire the right transport for your products.
