What Causes A Load To Shift?

When an unexpected load shift happens, it brings the risk of major and very serious accidents for both the semi-trucks carrying the loads and any vehicles nearby. The most common reason a load shift happens is that it was improperly loaded at the beginning. Proper weight distribution and securing the load, are key to avoiding a load shift.

Loads that are transported in a box container need to have their weight evenly distributed according to the axles of the trailer and the weight of the load. If the weight is uneven, it will affect how well the semi-truck can steer, brake and control its speed–all of which are things that we want to avoid, as they are what cause load shifts or loss of control.

We are experts when it comes to transferring product to/from railcars, semi trailers, trucks, grain bins and product storage facilities. Our professional crews are background-checked, have received training in railroad applications, are current in safety and security certification requirements for all Class I railroads, and have spent years perfecting their craft in railroad environments.

Federal law controls maximum gross vehicle weights and axle loads on the Interstate System. Federal limits are 80,000 pounds gross vehicle weight, 20,000 pounds on a single axle, and 34,000 pounds on a tandem axle group. There are also Federal standards for length and width on the National Network
