When transporting abnormal loads, it is a legal requirement that you have a pilot/escort car. These specialist vehicles are used to ensure the heavy haulage load departs, travels and arrives safely.
The vehicles have high-tech communication equipment which is used to correspond with all those involved during the haul. This helps ensure that travel route details and safety precautions are provided throughout the process. Certain abnormal load movements may require police escorts due to the extreme nature of the load or complexity of the transport. This could be for half or for the entire length of the journey.
The Escort/Pilot vehicles are also there to provide visual awareness for other drivers, keeping everyone on the public roads safe. Safety is one of our biggest priorities here at Spartan. That is why we take every necessary precaution to ensure we keep the load, the public and our team safe at all times.
All of our drivers are CSCS qualified and continue to undergo various training to ensure they are up to the industry safety standards. We ensure that the vehicles are well equipped with emergency and roadside safety equipment. All of our escort/pilot fleet are kitted out with the latest communications equipment as specified by the Highways Agency’s Self-Escorting of Abnormal Loads and Abnormal Vehicles Code of Practice.
Our experienced logistics team will prepare and provide detailed plans that will all help towards making the abnormal load transportation a successful one. We will also provide all the necessary documentation and notify the appropriate authorities for you. This happens a few days prior to the job, as it gives the authorities sufficient notice time. This will help guarantee that the abnormal load transportation is done legally and safely.
