UK and European Permit Applications

Employment of experienced staff in the application of UK and European abnormal load permits has allowed us at Potteries Heavy Haulage to advise our clients on any potential permit requirements that may be necessary for the movement of their cargo.

In addition to applying for our own UK permit authorisations for C&U, STGO Category 1,2 & 3, Special order and VR1’s we can also arrange these permits on behalf of our clients.

  • C&U movement notifications for over width loads, not exceeding 44,000 kg in weight
  • VR1 applications for loads which exceed 5m in width
  • BE16 Special order applications for loads which exceed 30m in length, 6.1m in width or 150,000 kg in weight
  • Application for AIP’s (Agreement in Principles) from the Highways England
  • Completion of ‘Water Preferred’ questionnaires from Highways England

We know that each country has different permit requirements for movement of abnormal loads and so we have developed an approved network of authorised agents in countries across Europe who can obtain the relevant permits on our behalf. Working closely with our European permit agents we can also arrange pilot cars and police escorts during the transit whenever required.

Looking for help with your abnormal load permit?

The UK road network restrictions are increasing due to authorities placing more restrictions on their structures. We have extensive knowledge of the UK and European road network and understand the best routes for heavy, high and wide loads.

Let us help you navigate the increasing restrictions. With our knowledge and experience we can help navigate ESDAL for you to ensure you have the abnormal load permits for your movement.
