OUR SERVICES

SUPERLOADS

Any load that exceeds standard oversize/overweight permit limits and requires additional review by state officials and engineering departments is a superload. While superload regulations vary from state to state, WCS Permits understands all and works directly with all states to obtain superload permits. 

OVERSIZE/ OVERWEIGHT LOAD PERMITS

If a commercial motor vehicle is oversize or overweight by exceeding a certain height, width, length or weight, a temporary oversize/overweight load permit (also known as a temporary truck or trip permit) is needed for it to legally travel. WCS Permits has 65 transportation agents ready to help you obtain an oversize load permit for the U.S. and Canada. 

LOGISTICS CONSULTING

Superload and mega load transportation doesn’t just involve oversize/overweight permits, but involves several steps of planning. WCS Permits has a team of experienced transportation consultants who understand logistics, oversize load permits, and route surveying so you can save time and money.

TEMPORARY
TRIP & FUEL PERMITS

Temporary Trip & Fuel Permits (IFTA) are often needed fast. When a qualified motor vehicle does not participate in IFTA then a temporary fuel trip fuel permit must be purchased to travel intrastate. WCS provides fast and affordable temporary trip and fuel permits in the 48 continental states and Canada.
