We Ship What Others Can't

Out of Gauge Cargo Shipping

oog cargoGlobal Shipping Services provides OOG or Out of Gauge shipping for companies that need to get oversized or abnormally sized products or equipment from point A to point B. OOG is cargo that exceeds the dimensions of a shipping container by length, width, height or all of the above. Our experts can provide safe transport for your OOG freight by land, air or sea and have experience transporting huge and heavy equipment like cranes, crankcases for hyper compressors and even helicopters. Whether you need to ship military equipment or oil refinery machinery, Global Shipping has got you covered.

Features of Our Shipping Services

Because OOG freight can’t be shipped in normal containers using normal means of transport, special types of trucks or trailers, aircraft or flat rack containers must be utilized to move the freight. We provide all of the following options for shipping out of gauge cargo:

  • Open Top & Flat Rack Containers: If shipping large or complex items or equipment by sea, we are able to load them into flat rack or open top containers that serve as OOG containers, as they are open on the top or sides. The items are lifted in and then covered to protect them from the elements.
  • Hiab Trucks, Winch Trucks, Flat Bed & Heavy Haul Trucking: Our trucking network allows us to provide heavy haul transport throughout the US, Canada and Mexico. We have transported oil refinery compressors and helicopters using our network of specialty heavy haul trucks.
  • Charter Flights & Cargo Planes: If you need to move irregular shaped equipment by air, we have access to large cargo planes such as 747s or Antonovs. We can find the right charter flight that fits the requirements for your cargo and your schedule.
