No Job is Too Large; Out of Gauge Rail Services Now Available

Do you have an oversized shipment to move across the globe? Through DSV’s global network of air, ocean, road, and rail transports, we’ve got you covered.

No Job is Too Large; Out of Gauge Rail Services Now Available

Our Road division recently completed a super load shipment from Denmark to Colorado, which required collaboration between multiple DSV teams and showcases how advantageous it is to have team members in over 75 countries. The shipment, an industrial drier used in food manufacturing, weighed in at a whopping 222,673 pounds and was 48 feet long, 10 feet wide, 13 feet tall. 

In a collective effort from both the Denmark Projects team and the Houston Road team, the oversized load was moved via ocean transport, with final delivery by rail.

This was the first of our shipments utilizing our brand new Out of Gauge Rail services, now available in the US.

What is Out of Gauge Cargo?

Out of Gauge cargo, or OOG, is any shipment that exceeds the dimensions of a container, by length, width, or height. 

We are now offering OOG Rail services, giving you the ability to move heavy and oversized cargo over long distances. Rail provides a simpler solution for out of gauge loads compared to traveling via road with more restrictions and regulations and potentially reduces costs when compared to dedicated trucking services.

Along with OOG rail, we provide first and last mile trucking services to and from rail spurs, including engineered drawings, loading/unloading, and tying down of cargo according to the Association of American Railroads (AAR) rules and regulations. 

If you have any questions about these services or would like to book a shipment, please reach out to our Out of Gauge Rail team.
