Abstract

Transport is in continuous evolution, regardless of the activity sector. Road transport faces various obstacles, and their management is a crucial part of planning and executing bulk transport operations. One of the main obstacles is the low height of bridges or power lines along the planned route. To avoid collisions with these obstacles, detailed studies of the route are carried out, identifying potential conflict points in advance. Preventive measures such as temporarily raising power lines or temporarily changing the height of bridges can be implemented to ensure the smooth passage of oversized cargo. Ground communication routes with a curved axis represent another limiting factor in oversized transport. Solutions include planning routes to minimize the number of bends or using special trailers with directional axles. These trailers allow for easier cornering and ensure that the transport can cross terrain with difficult geographical features. The necessary authorizations also represent a major obstacle. Oversized transport often involves dimensions and weights that exceed the usual limits, which is why it is mandatory to obtain authorizations issued by competent public authorities. But this stage, by way of consequence, determines the legality and admissibility of carrying out transport operations. To manage obstacles in oversized transport, a proactive approach is essential, with detailed route analyses, the implementation of appropriate preventive measures, and compliance with applicable regulations. These solutions contribute to the efficiency and safety of oversized road transport, ensuring harmonious integration in the context of the existing infrastructure.
